March VADA News
The Cabin Fever show celebrated its 40th year with another successful show. The weather was beautiful and it brought out the shoppers! The dealers I spoke with reported good sales and I was told that much furniture was sold—yeah! Trish Koptiuch, one of VADA’s newest members, set up for her first show with Andy Gardiner.
March looks as if it will be a busy month. Two shows are coming up: Antiques in Schoharie in Schoharie, New York on March 18th and 19th and the Lebanon Antiques Show and Sale in West Lebanon, New Hampshire on March 19th. Look for many VADA dealers at both shows.
Many of our dealers are on the road in March to other shows. Rick Fuller is headed out to Illinois for the Country Spirit show March 3rd and 4th and will be at the Country Antique Show in Danielson, Connecticut on April 1st. Tommy Thompson and Bonnie and Dave Ferris will also be in Danielson. Janice Goodwin, Jean Tudhope, and George Johnson will be doing the Woodsville Antique Show at the high school in Woodsville, New Hampshire on April 1st.
Don’t forget to visit Pewter and Wood’s websitewww.pewterandwoodantiques.com to bid on an item in the Alzheimer’s Silent Auction beginning March 10th. The auction is on March 18th. It’s a very worthy and important cause—let’s help Barb achieve her goal of $12,000 this year!
According to Greg, contracts for the VADA show at Stratton Mountain in July will be mailed out soon.
Debbie and Jonathan Lang informed us that Lang Farm in Essex closed at the end of February.
We were happy to learn from Linda Brown of The Cargill Collection that her husband David Brown is recovering from the heart attack he had. We missed him at the Cabin Fever show.
Dick Vandell of American Decorative Arts in Canaan, New Hampshire is not well and we wish him a speedy recovery.
We were sad to learn that Jack Winner of Newfane, Vermont died unexpectedly on February 5th. Jack ran a successful shop, Jack Winner Antiques, for many years. Our condolences to his family.
