"Noonmark Antiques, where have you been? You haven't posted since August 2017." Well, Charlie and I packed up 35+ years of accumulated memories and practical neccessities and moved to a gorgeous little town, an easy 30 minute express train ride to Penn Station New York. I am smitten with Maplewood, New Jersey and find it a privilege to live in this beautiful, friendly, hoppin' village. And because we live here now, there is no excuse for us to miss the Morristown Armory Antiques Show this weekend.
We arrived a bit after the opening and judging by the crowd, I imagine there may have been a line. By the way, it's a lovely hilly ride to the armory, perfect for antiquing.
We saw a few other ADA dealers there shopping the show. They left weighed down with their purchases "to sell." What were a few of my favorite things that I saw? Well, hands down, Charlie and I both went gaga over a pair of huge and heavy black and white glass windows leaning nonchalantly against a wall. They are wonderful. They came from a 1920's factory and according to dealer Jim McGrath, they have been in his warehouse until now. There are a few issues but he has a guy who can repair them. These are great folks. If you have a spot for them, go check them out.
Jim McGrath, Massachusettes $6,500. for the pair
Other favorites? A set of animal shaped iron carnival targets in red/orange paint. They were pretty cool. A Stubbs ship painting for $4,500. A 1960's coffee set for $70. (very sleek) There is a lot to see. Worth the trip. Admission is only $5.00 Open today until 6:00 and tomorrow October 29 from 11-5.
