September Shows and New Additions

First things first, I have yet to decide if or where to show at Brimfield in a couple weeks. If I decide to go down, I'll let you know in a new post, right here.

Moving along, I will be showing later in the month at the 8th Annual Celebration of the Arts and Antique Show on Saturday, September 29, 2012, in the village of Dunstable, Massachusetts. The show will be held rain or shine from 10am to 5pm and features about 25 artists and dealers of antique and vintage goods, along with live music and food. Admission is free!  The artists and dealers showing are personally selected by the show organizer, Mary Dacquino, and more information, if you need it, may be found at her web site, Seasons at Calmore.

Of course I am constantly poking around in the attics and sheds of New England to find more things to offer for sale, often unique objects that you simply won't find anywhere else, among them...

A hand-built Blueberry Rake, probably an experimental attempt,intended to improve on the common open design.I don't think it ever went into production.

A framed Needlework Exotic Bird, silk on linen, circa1930-40 by my best guess.

An unusually slender Arts & Crafts style Bookcase,about 44 inches tall, built primarily of thin slats.

A primitive Cant-Sided Box, probably made to hold fruit as it was being pickedin the orchard, a nice size for the table top.

A brass Odd Fellows Jewel, featuring symbols of the fraternal orderand suspended on a fancy chain attached to a belt loop.

A Watercolor of a Lake or Pond scene with one boat on the beach and another out on the water, American School, signed Campbell, [18]'94 in a frame perhaps fifteen or twenty years newer. 

And a lot more besides, including a circa 1920-30s Bearskin Coat in a mens' large size (no picture yet, sorry). I'll bring just a couple pieces of furniture, maybe a garden piece or two, but mostly small things... all priced reasonably and many under $100. As always, everything is subject to prior sale, so if there is something you have to have or simply want to know more about, email me.
