Hunt Valley Antiques Show

Last month I went to The Hunt Valley Antiques Show's New Collectors Soiree which benefited Family and Children’s Services of Central Maryland.

BLS & EAS

Wine tasting

Scotch tasting

We toured the antique show with designer Stiles Colwill who also owns Halcyon House Antiques. He was a wealth of knowledge. One of the most valuable lessons he taught us was don't take a dealer's word for it.

He was wearing needlepoint Stubbs and Woottons...which made me value his opinion that much more.

Were they excited about new purchases...or was it the scotch?





The two lovely chairs of the event.

After the show we headed to Tark's for dinner and drinks.

JCW decided to make an appearance at the end of the evening.

That looks like a really well-organized show with some great antiques. Wine and scotch tastings too - yes, please! And to be able to take a tour of the show with a designer is so fun :)

I love federal mirrors! The item that was tops of my list was a tortoise shell box which was nowhere near my budget...JCW was happy there were no purchases! xx
