Every year a good indication that spring is truly underway is the arrival of the Philadelphia Antique Shows. We have two good shows on the same weekend in April about a month away. So start planning now, many visitors come from out of town to see these shows so don't miss your opportunity to see some of the finest antiques available for purchase.

The main show is The Philadelphia Antique Show held at the 33rd St Armory between April 14th to 17th, this benefits the Universtiy of Pennsylvania Health System and has some of the leading dealers in the country exhibitng, including I have to admit my own brother Paul, who deals in ceramics and furniture and Woolies, art made by sailors with wool of ships, you can view his web site at Paul Vandekar Antiques if you want to see more of his invetory.

The show will also have a loan exhibit of Philadelphia Empire Furniture.

The loan exhibit is a feature of the show and over the years they have had some excellent and interesting exhibits. Prices for the dealers  exhibts are definitely high end with many of the pieces being of museum quality however even with a high end price they may still be good value, just as in real estate. One of the Keno twins Leigh will be exhibitng as well. For a full list of exhibitors and hours go to the show website at Philadelphia Antique Show and support the hospital and the dealers with a visit. Don't forget to say hi to my brother.

The other show in town the same weekend is the 23rd St Armory Show, hosted by Barnstar Productions and the dates are April 13th to the 15th, again you can access their web page at 23rd St Armory Show, to check prices and hours, this show will also have a loan exhibit Celebrating the Garden, Form Function Fabulous curated by Aileen Manor of Maryland.

This show is smaller then the 33rd street armory show, and prices can be more reasonable, but not always.

Enjoy the shows and hopefully the Spring weather, and take time to see our glorious city and enjoy it as well.

Nick, Thanks for the info!  I know many people that love to decorate using antiques, especially in some of the older estate homes in Chester County.  I will try to check it out.  Will your brother give me a discount if I tell him that you sent me?  Or will that just brand me as an easy mark?
