The Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show, 2019

Lisa

There were tornado warnings issued for the region on Friday evening, but, Charlie and I soldiered on and made it to the 2019 Philadelphia Antiques and Arts Show at the Navy Yard.

I heard that the big tent where the show convened could withstand winds to 120 mph. I assumed, if the dealers felt comfortable bringing their choice inventory to display, then we should be ok! The rain pounded the tent for at least 30 minutes. However, all remained dry and convivial as we assembled to honor Laura Beach and her lifetime accomplishments.

Here are some highlights from the show.
