top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>Just last weekend I wrote sharing details on one of my favorite vendors in The Hague, S van Leeuwen, and not so long before that I was divulging details on the oh-so-diva-worthy Rocks & Clocks. They recently teamed up Chez van Leeuwen for an Antiques Diva Tour of The Hague, sharing historical information and fascinating stories on their inventory and seriously regaling the ladies on the group Diva Tour. They’re back together again for what I’m certain will be a wonderfully good time (full of great buys) in S. van Leeuwen’s Najaarsexpositie Dec 3-13, 2009. You’ll want to add this date to your December To Do’s!

Dec 3 & 10, 5-9pm
Dec 4 & 11, 12-5pm

Not only will S. van Leeuwen & Rocks & Clocks be offering special items just in time for Christmas, but they’ll be joined by their colleague from Antes Art Form, a specialist in French glassworks from the Art Deco and Art Nouveau period as well as Brigitta Sueters who makes jewelry inspired by the past!

Have I mentioned before in past Diva blog posts my weakness for vintage posters and signs? I’m downright bummed to miss his inventory in person as while this event is going on I’ll be doing La Diva Loca for a few days this December in New York City! My loss might be your gain as there’ll be more for you to buy if I’m not on the scene scooping up the goods before you!

Hat designer Suzanne Scheepers will be onboard showing her hand-made designs, making this event a perfect Diva’s Day Out!! I’m seriously bummed to miss it!!! You’ll just have to go on my behalf and, as always, tell them The Antiques Diva™ sent you!
