NIGHT OUT-WINTER ANTIQUES SHOW

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Winter Antiques Show, widely recognized as one of the finest antique shows in America. Held at the impressive New York Armory on Park Avenue, the tony event showcases an eclectic mix of vetted works from 73 vendors ranging from antiquity to early 1960's. It's always a grand evening with groups of curators, collectors, dealers and designers mingling among beautiful vignettes featuring an amazing array of antiques. Even if you aren't in the market, the extraordinary display of American, English, European and Asian antiquities are pure eye candy for any antique aficionado and certainly worth the trip.

Definitely eye candy! I don't think I will be able to go this year, so I really appreciate the peek inside.

What fun. That entrance, with the fabulous snowflakes hanging from the ceiling, just sort of sets the mood for the visual delights.

I just love this show and used to show at it up until ten years ago. It simply became to pricey to set up a booth but I still love going. Lucky you.
