2008 Main Line Antiques Show

We are once again sponsoring the Main Line Antique Show to benefit Surrey Services for Seniors, this year 2008 it is being held November 22nd and 23rd at the Valley Forge Military Academy and College in Wayne. Admission is $8.00. The theme this year is Invest in the Past, Save the Future.

As many of you know previous to real estate I bought and sold antiques for my living, being the third generation of my family along with my brother Paul whi is still involved in the antiques business. I have appeared on Chubb's Antiques Roadshow as an appraiser in different seasons and have also written and lectured on different subjects. Whilst my main experience is in ceramics and I have sold pieces to major museums, corporate and private clients I have an understanding of other fields as well. I have been asked by the show to lead some booth tours on both days of the show, these will be at 11.00 and 2.00 o'clock each day over the weekend, so hope to see you there and show you some of the wonderful pieces each of these dealers bring with them.

Many people are being influenced by the "Green" influence, not just in real estate and cars but in everyday living. This year's theme Invest in the Past, Save the Future is to raise awareness of how purchasing and using antiques can decrease your carbon footprint, and be a good investment as well. As we all know when you purchase something new it loses value at once, but with antiques over time your investment actually increases and makes an impact on our world by saving precious resources.

A great way to enjoy the show is to attend the preview party for the show held on November 21st from 6-9 PM and cost $50, Young Collectors age 35 and under will pay $35, both these tickets give you access over the weekend as well but primarily give you first choice of what is available for sale.

A new direction for the show this year is the inclusion of 20th Century fine arts alongside the normal offerings of furniture, pottery and porcelain, jewelry and silver from earlier times. For more information, including directions and a complete list of dealers, please call 610-647-8632 or visit www.mlas.org

Nick - You'd get along just wonderfully with my Mother.  She's an avid and passionate collector of antiques.  As a kid, I usually went with her to these types of functions in hopes of running across older baseball cards.

Jason,

From small acorns grow the most avid collectors, those baseball cards are probably worth a lot of money nowadays. There won't be any baseball cards at the show, it is a smaller show, but if you have time and want a trip down to Wayne, PA the show is worth the visit, plus we also have some great restaurants locally that make the trip an added bonus.
