Fall 2007 — Samtiques booth at Cole’s Antique Show in Warrenton, TX — September 27 to October 7:
This was our 4th show at Cole’s Antiques in Warrenton, TX. We consider ourselves “charter members” of the Cole Antique Show, even though we had to miss their first show in October 2005 due to family illness. That show was sparsely attended by shoppers, as well as dealers, because of Hurricane Katrina.
During these past four shows, we have met some really nice people as they shopped with us, and many very nice dealers who also set up booths in the building. Folks like:
And Kathy and Wayne have a wonderful selection of Depression glass — they also were very generous to make and hang aisleway signs for the entire building. (Samtiques is located on “Cole’s Avenue.”) They also shared a scrumptious meal with us one evening.
I missed a photo “op” with our other next-door neighbor, Frances Bones — author of two books — The Standard Encyclopedia of American Silverplate (Hardcover) and Fostoria Glassware, 1887-1982: Identification & Values (Hardcover). She can answer just about any question you send her way regarding these two subjects (and more) — and shares her knowledge graciously.
We look forward to the Spring 2008 show —
NEWS — Our Spring 2008 show will open a day earlier than usual — THURSDAY, March 27. We will also close a day earlier — Saturday, April 5. So, come early and shop with us
in an air conditioned building, park free, pay nothing to shop, and use REAL restrooms with running water.
“Heck” — sometimes we even give out free flowers (whether you buy from us or not — gratis Dennis Bell).
