NEWSLETTER - June 7, 2011



Spring is finally here!


This month's Newsletter is packed with news, new stock listings, and several interesting features, including the first installment of our new online marketplace: MaggsList.

As you scroll through the page below, we hope you'll find things of interest and decide to spend a few moments with us.

Spring-Summer Schedule


Our Conway shop is now open on Sundays from 10:00 until 4:00. This schedule will continue through September.


The next big event in our shop will be our fourth annual Tax Holiday Weekend Sale, tentatively scheduled for the weekend of August  13 & 14. You'll find more information about this sale, as well as a calendar of shop and show hours by clicking this link.

New Stock Listings

 Georgian paste 

This month we're adding nearly two dozen pieces to our online inventory, including a 17th-century oak armchair, a centennial joint stool, an assembled set of four American ladder-back chairs, several horn beakers, four early Dutch blue and white tiles, several bits of interesting treenware, and a grouping of Georgian jewellery. Click on the paste earrings for a look at these latest listings.



This month we introduce a new department - MaggsList - in which we publish pictures and descriptions of articles for sale by friends and customers. Like Craigslist, its more famous model, MaggsList is a free service and all communication should be between buyer and seller. To see current listings, or if you're interested in selling something on MaggsList, click on the picture of John.

Revitalizing Rhinebeck
A personal perspective

Rhinebeck sign

We've recently returned from a very successful weekend at the Rhinebeck show. In recent years, many of us have been concerned about this show, which has slipped from its position as one of the most exciting in the Northeast. Although not all dealers would agree, the May show regained much of the energy for which Rhinebeck was once known. For pictures and a candid report, click on the Building C sign.


A Visit to Venice

Last fall, after our buying trip to England, we set out on a train voyage from London to Rome. On our way we spent a few days each in Bruges, Zurich, Venice, and Florence. This month we'd like to share some of our experience in Venice, which we feel is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities on earth. We invite you to click on the canal to begin your visit. 
Quick Links


Additional links to more than 11,000 pages and images will be found in the Quick Links box on our website.

The Back Page
On the drive from our hotel in Hyde Park to the Rhinebeck show on Sunday morning, we took a detour through the Vanderbilt property, where we snapped several pictures of the grounds. We find none so captivating as this view of the Hudson, taken near the mansion.

We hope you've enjoyed this month's newsletter. Remember, we're open most Sundays and would love to see you. If another day works better for you, please e-mail; we'll be more than happy to arrange a time.


And thanks for being a customer.
