top: 2px; padding-right: 5px; font-family: times;”>It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Brederode Kunst & Antiek is back with their Najaarsbrocante the 10th, 11th, and 12th of December with a fabulous private sale in Amsterdam’s Jordaan! Brederode joins together with area antique dealers to make a special weekend of antiques, art and open doors. This year’s sale will feature lanterns, candelabras, mirrors, glasswork and a variety of French brocante items! But Brederode isn’t the only one opening the doors to her private residence for a pre-Christmas sale: visit Brederode to get a map to other vendors participating in this open door weekend in Amsterdam.

Dear Diva Readers,

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>It’s time to go to Bath – but please, darlings, don’t pronounce this town as if it were a hygene term. Try as you might to drawl a proper vowel in the centre of the word to give this world heritage city the proper homage! Oprah voted Bath to be on her top 10 list of must see places in the world”… so what better time to go than during the 21st annual Bath Decorative & Antiques Fair going on March 4, 5 & 6th, 2010. Of course, if this late notice means you can’t make the fair, no worries, for a visit to Bath is good anytime of year – I consider it a staple in my list of Diva-Must Do (and Repeat) Places on Earth!

Here are a few pictures from my most recent visit to Bath!

The Bath Decorative & Antiques Fair is a premier provincial event and is now in its 21st year! And if the site is any indication, it’s promising to uphold the standard it has become famous for. Once dubbed “a mini Olympia” (after London’s famed Olympia Fine Arts Fair) there will be plenty for both the trade and the collector to feast their eyes upon with painted English and Continental furniture, period and country oak furniture, homely English Staffordshire, decorative accessories, garden items, textiles and much more on display from exhibitors from across the UK. Many of the 45 exhibitor’s only stand at this annual event and so save fresh stock for the occasion. The queue winds around the building and up the steps from early in the morning with a mixture of both local and international trade and private buyers keen to visit a concentrated exhibition of the best in decorative antiques and accessories outside London.

All told it promises to be an exciting event, retaining its position as a premier Fair in the antiques calendar.

Jewels Glitter at The Zeist Castle, The Netherlands

Winterexpositie Het Juweel 2009

het Slot Zeist, Zeist
Friday 27 -Sunday 29 November 2009
11am – 7pm

Jewels Glitter at the Slot Zeist!

top:2px;padding-right:5px;font-family:times;”>From the 27-29 November 2009, the 17th C Zeist Castle near Utrecht will be aglow with jewelry, not on display in museum-like-fashion, but for you to try on and buy from the most prominent & trustworthy jewelers, antique dealers and noble blacksmiths of the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Among those in residence on Winterexpositie days will be the charming David Aardewerk of Rocks and Clocks whose inventory is simply to die for!

On an Antiques Diva Tour in The Hague recently, David shared a glimpse into his collection and I was utterly smitten – his collection runs the gamut of items for the Mr. or the Mrs. from vintage & antique watches, to purse clocks, to beautiful baubles from the Art Deco period and beyond! I’ve got my eye on a pair of Van Cleef and Arples cufflinks for my husband as a Christmas cadeaux and would be delighted if I could convince the hubster that I desperately need that platinum, gold, diamond & emerald 1920’s Dutch Art Deco ring Rocks & Clocks has in inventory! If you’re looking for a special present for someone else (or better yet, yourself) you must visit Winterexpositie Het Juweel 2009 this November and if you can’t make these dates, never fear: Rocks & Clocks is at present updating their website with a sensational collection of “Must-Have Diva-Worthy Accessories” – so stay tuned for details on their website launch: http://www.rocksandclocks.nl/

Where: Slot Zeist
Entrance Price: € 12.50 per person

Parking is free in the vicinity of the Slot Zeist. Don’t worry if you have to park “too far” away from the castle, simply wave down one of the free shuttle-service transporting passengers to the castle!

Until Next Time, Layer on those Jewels!
