San Francisco Fall Antiques Show

Wednesday, October 10th - Sunday, October 14th, 2018


I am honored to return for my 9th year to The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show. Widely considered to be the best show on the West Coast, the event featuring top dealers from around the globe. The show is rigorously vetted by committees of experts in various fields of antiques, so customers can come and buy with an unusual degree of confidence in authenticity.


Regular Hours: October 11-14th, 2018
Thursday – Saturday 10:30 AM – 7 PM Sunday 12 Noon – 5 PM Regular admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door, but call or email me for comp tickets for regular admission.


The show is to be held at Fort Mason Center, located in the beautiful Marina district, between Fisherman's Wharf and the Golden Gate Bridge, on San Francisco Bay. One could easily argue that this is the most beautiful location for an antiques show in America. The entrance to Fort Mason Center is at the intersection of Marina Boulevard and Buchanan Street. Use 2 Marina Blvd., San Francisco in your GPS. The Festival Pavilion is in the far back corner of the lot, as far as you can go.

What else do I need to know?

Preview Party - October 10th: The preview party, which benefits the "Enterprise for High School Students" charity, is simply over-the-top—unparalleled in glamour, cuisine, and attendance. This offers an opportunity for serious collectors to shop the show before it opens to the general public. The event opens on Wednesday, beginning at 4 p.m. Tickets are offered at various tiers based upon time of entry. Tickets at 4:00 require a donation of at least $3,000 for which 2 tickets are received. At 5:00 p.m. it drops to $2,000 for 2 persons. At 6:00 p.m. it drops to $800 for 2 persons or $500 for a single ticket. And at 7:00 p.m. it drops to $500 for 2 persons of $300 for a single ticket.

Original York Antique Show

Friday, February 1st - Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

I will be exhibiting once again at the Original Semi-Annual York Antiques Show & Sale.  This long-standing Americana event, with approximately 100 dealers exhibiting a tremendous selection of offerings, is just a hop, skip, and a jump from my home base, so if there is anything in particular that you've viewed on my website and would like to see in person, just let me know and I will bring it in on the following day.  I don't bring a massive amount of inventory to this particular event, so it's good to call me.

The show is to be held in Memorial Hall East at the York Fairgrounds Convention & Expo Center, located at 334 Carlisle Ave. in York Pennsylvania.  Parking is free and general admission is $10.  Hours are as follows:  Friday & Saturday, 10 AM – 6 PM and Sunday 11 AM – 5 PM.

One Man Selling Exhibition

Saturday, June 1st - Sunday, June 30th, 2019

I am delighted to announce that I have been asked to exhibit antique American flags once again at New York's Union League Club.

I will present a wealth of material (approx. 40 to 60 objects) in the spacious gallery, including antique American flags, political campaign flags, banners and kerchiefs. This is a selling exhibition, and the club is open every day, but I am generally not physically present every day. Though I can be found there by chance, what I generally do is make appointments to come in and meet with clients, brining additional material with me, if desired, to meet the needs of whatever someone is interested in with respect to age, size, date, historical relationships, price level, etc.

Anyone wishing to see me in person should call me to schedule an appointment. I am best reached at either my office 717.502.1281, on my cell 717.676.0545, or via email at

About the Union League
One of the city's most exclusive institutions, the Union League was founded during the Civil War in 1863 by a group of concerned and influential citizens, to aid President Abraham Lincoln in his quest to preserve the Union. Over the past 140 years, the club has quietly rendered distinguished service to the nation. During the Civil War it raised and funded three volunteer regiments. Its members were instrumental in establishing The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1870. They played an essential role in the founding of the American Red Cross and helped to erect both the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor and the Lincoln Monument in Union Square. Today one of the primary focuses is the well being of our military veterans.

Many prominent civic, state and national leaders have enjoyed membership in the ULC, including fifteen Presidents, many Senators and Congressmen, cabinet members, diplomats, and scores of CEO's of major corporations. J. Pierpont Morgan was a regular during the 19th century, along with John Jay, William Cullen Bryant, Chester Arthur, and Thomas Nast. Theodore Roosevelt managed his early political career from the Club's chambers and chose them as a place to hold interrogations during the time when he served as New York's Chief of Police.

Location:  The Union League Club is located at 38 East 37th Street, New York, New York 10016

Hours:  The gallery is generally keep open and lit between approx. 9 am and 9 pm.

I will likely give a lecture in conjunction with the event. Details will follow.

** Please note that the club rules prohibit jeans and cell phone use in the lobby. (Cell phone use is fine in the gallery -- our sincerest thanks for your cooperation.)
