Puyallup Home Show comming . . .

The Antique Feature of the Puyallup Home Show is comming fast; January 7-9. 10 am to 8 pm. We have booths availible.

The Puyallup Home Show, January 7-9, 2011, Features a Special Antiques Section.
If you’re looking for cool 1950’s barware, an antique airplane propeller or airplane telephone (yes, there really were phones designed for use on airplanes!), or Art Deco jewelry that’s as glitzy and glamorous in its display as the pieces themselves -- you’re in luck! This year, the Puyallup Home Show, January 7-9, 2011, also features a special section devoted to antique furniture and jewelry, collectibles and art. This show has literally everything for the house and the garden that you could possibly imagine!
The Puyallup Home Show has always been a showcase for garden innovations and decorating trends. And 2011 is the eighth year for the show’s eagerly anticipated antiques section. Dennis Eros, the show's antiques promoter, says it’s been exciting to watch the progress of this mix of new and old at the show. It makes it a fun place for all -- antiques collectors, home show shoppers and garden aficionados!
To help you prepare to “shop ‘til you drop” for the hottest collectibles, here’s what you can expect to see in the antiques section:
Vintage bar glasses, cocktail shakers and other accoutrements of a well-stocked bar are evocative of a more glamorous era (think the Thin Man Comedy-mystery featuring Nick and Nora Charles: a former detective and his rich, playful wife. They solve a murder case mostly for the fun of it).
Extensive collection of glassware from the 1930’s and 1940’s, and bar-related items from the 1940’s and 1950’s.
Sure to catch your eye is the booth belonging to Eric Paul of Consortium Antiques -- a collector with a twist. In addition to traditional antiques, he also has several collection sub-specialties that are truly unique! First, there are his game room supplies, with an emphasis on slot machines from the early 1930’s to 1950.
Then, there’s Eric’s collection of toy sewing machines from the late 1800’s to 1950. These toy machines, which mimicked adult machines, were commonly used to teach young girls to sew. They range in price from $150 to $1,200 for an extremely rare red Singer machine – only 500 of them were made, all in France, so they’re very difficult to find here.
Finally, here’s another piece of history Eric’s booth will highlight – porcelain advertising signs from the 1920’s to the 1940’s! These signs, which most people think of as made from wood, were actually often made from porcelain. They range in price from $350 to $800, and look terrific displayed in groupings on a wall.
The Puyallup Home Show will feature a prized collection of name designer jewelry from 1910 to 1960, including such top sellers as Miriam Haskell, Eisenberg, Weiss, Kramer of New York and Joseph of Hollywood.
You will appreciate a collection of sterling silver charms, which never go out of favor among collectors. The charms are extremely popular, and are often bought by people who want to replace old charms from their childhoods, or who want to start charm collections for their children or grandchildren. Many of the charms are truly unique and feature moving parts. They range in price from $5 to $45, making it easy to start a collection. Look for animal and bug pins from the 1920’s to current day, cameos, gemstone pieces, Art Deco pieces, even Southwest and Native American pieces. Talk about a bounty!
Show hours are 10am-8pm on Friday and Saturday; Sunday 10am-5pm. Admission is $6 for adults; children 17 and under free. For more information call: 360 978-4154.
Do you want to sell at the Puyallup Home Show? That's easy. A 10 ft x 10 ft booth is only $160 for the three days, complete with electricity. Drive up to your booth and drop off your "stuff" on Wednesday and Thursday, January 5 & 6 8 am to 8 pm. You do not have to be a dealer to sell; call us and we will help you with everything you need.
