  • Oh “Le Petit Cabinet de Curiosities” I so agree with you – I too wish I could go to NYC for a divalicious shopping trip!

    As for now, I’ll have to live vicariously through La Reine, who fortunately always shops on behalf of the Diva Readers! Merci for the additional tips La Reine. This was an excellent point to make – pick up those “Free Entry Coupons!”! Even if you can’t attend the fairs, you can pass the entry tickets along to friends who can pick up free entry passes for you too!!

    Much Love,
    The Diva

  • The Big Guy and I really enjoyed the Grammercy Park Antiques Show this past weekend. Small, high-priced, but some excellent quality items. A few vendors I recognized from the Merchandise Mart show in Chicago earlier this month. Sadly I’ll be in Chicago for the ND game and will miss the New York Antiques Show this weekend.

    But, I’ll be back in NYC for the Pier Antiques Show Nov 15-16.

    Divalicious Hint: Be sure to quickly scan all the cards promoting upcoming shows. TBG and I picked up 2 guest passes for the Grammercy Park show when we were at the Rhinebeck Antiques Show, saving us $30. And at the Grammercy Park Show, we picked up 2 guest passes for the Pier Show, which will save us another $30! Hmmm…that was almost enough to pay for that cool Russian desk calendar I saw at Grammercy…
    bonne courses!

  • Miss Decor,
    Oh I forgot to mention I agree with you so much about “using these types of high end fairs” to educate yourself about the “real thing”. I always tell people that antique shopping should be done like a wine tasting. You have to go out, touch, see, feel, taste the good quality to educate your eye, the way you would swish, swirl and spit in a wine tasting to educate your palette!

  • Miss Decor,

    It was fun to check out your new blog! I’ll look forward to getting to know you through your future postings! I love what you said about “still thinking about the aubusson pillow” you didn’t buy. We all have those memories of near purchases that we still regret not buying. For me, my “one that got away” is a contemporary rendition(which was quite reasonably priced)of a dark Dutch Masterpiece still life that would have been gorgeous hanging above my pair of yellow silk upholstered French Louis XV maple framed bergers! I didn’t buy it because the vendor was condescending and I simply didn’t like him… Now I can barely remember what I didn’t like about him but could describe the painting to you in excruciating detail!

  • Ohhhh just dreaming about the New York Antiques Show! It is almost like a museum has decided to sell its collections-with prices to match. While certainly not a place for bargains, it is one of the best ways to educate yourself about the “real” thing-don’t you think? I am still thinking about the aubusson pillow that I saw years ago…..
