NEWSLETTER - April 19, 2011


Spring Post-England Issue
 

Homeward Bound

Heading west from Heathrow - bound for Boston

 

We've just returned from an exciting buying trip to our favorite haunts in England. Our shipment reached the U.S. in the wee smalls of last Saturday and, after an unnecessary delay at U.S. Customs, arrived in Conway this morning. Since we had recently acquired several fine pieces from a Hampshire County home, we anticipated buying only smalls, but once we began shopping, we were faced with several outstanding, affordable pieces of early oak. We couldn't say no. All of these new finds will be unveiled at our Spring Opening. You'll find details below.

 

Our travels weren't all work, though. We spent a delightful Spring day in London, and this newsletter includes a few pictures of Kensington Gardens - as reassurance that Spring still exists and might even make it to the Northeast some day soon.

 

We hope you'll find a few minutes to explore this newsletter and that many of you will join us on the 30th.

On the final weekend of our trip we took time out to enjoy a beautiful, warm Saturday in London with Jan's daughter, Lindsey, who was in town on business. We invite you to share a few scenes of Kensington Gardens. Just click on the picture.

Minutes before the gates opened, only this handful of early buyers were willing to pay twenty-five pounds each to shop during dealer setup. Click the picture for the whole story.
