In this month's Newsletter
If you've been reading our newsletters lately, you probably know
that last weekend we held our annual fall Opening, on the heels
of our latest buying trip to England. We're thrilled to report
that it was an enormous success. Not only did we break our
overall show sales record, e-mail and phone calls are still
coming in, and our total for the event continues to rise.
We'd reported in last month's newsletter that we would be
showing an unusual number of outstanding pieces culled from
sources both here and abroad. We were ecstatic about the quality
of what we had and tried to convey our excitement to others.
Apparently we were successful because, when we opened our doors
at 10:00, more than two dozen shoppers were waiting in line. It
appears that their expectations were rewarded since, by the end
of the first day we'd already surpassed the sales of our best
Retail buyers and dealers came from the immediate area and from
as far away as the North Shore, Connecticut, New York, and
Pennsylvania. By the end of the weekend, we'd sold nearly 100
objects, including several of the finest and most interesting
pieces we've ever offered. You'll find a link below to a few
pictures of our shop as it opened.
Even as we're digging out from under the pile of paperwork
generated by such a spectacular sale, and putting together this
newsletter, we're preparing for another show this weekend - the
Wethersfield Antiques Show. Later on this page you'll find more
information about it as well.
But the focus of this Newsletter is our new stock. While our
sales were strong, we had so many fresh things on offer - more
than 250 - that there are many great things left. We've listed
and described more than thirty of the best pieces now in our
shop. We hope you'll use the link below to have a look.
In addition to our website, which is open all of the time, our
shop will be open next Sunday and on three Sundays in December,
with special holiday offers throughout the month of December.
Look for a preview of these in December's Newsletter.
