August already? We hope that you've been enjoying summer as much as we have. At last, two and a half years after the tornado upset all routines, we're finishing the work of moving into our new space. Sometimes it feels like Christmas morning, as we rediscover things we haven't seen since they were plucked from the wreckage and packed hurriedly into boxes. Little by little, we're moving them into new spaces, where we'll be able to find them when needed.
Thankfully, our online business has been steady, and we've had several opportunities to purchase new stock from local and European sources. This will take a lot of pressure off when we're in England in the fall.
This month we'll be staying close to home, except for showing at BarnStar's Midweek One-Day Antiques Fair in tax-free Manchester, NH. This will be our first show during New Hampshire Antiques Week for many years, and we believe that the new one-day format of MidWeek will be very successful. We're looking forward to what promises to be a fine show.
Here in Massachusetts, we'll be tax free on the weekend of August 17 and 18, and we're planning a very special event to overlap with the Tax Holiday Weekend. We'll announce the details in a mailing that will go out shortly after MidWeek.
Because of our tax holiday event, there are no new listings this month, but there is another story from the past, this one about a very special Dutch spice chest we sold a decade ago.
open on Sundays from 10:00 until 4:00, but happy to receive visitors at any time.
