Antique lovers and collectors will soon gather to celebrate the beauty and popular value of antiques at the Charleston International Antique Show March 19-22 at 40 East Bay Street.
Here's a word about the show from the Web site:
Featuring more than 30 of the nation's most prominent antiques dealers, CIAS 2009 will include a wide range of period furnishings and decorative arts, vintage jewelry, porcelains, ceramics, silver and architectural garden accents from the late 17th to the early 20th century.
The weekend kicks off with a preview party on Thursday, March 19 from 7-9 p.m. Then the show hours are: Friday, March 20 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.; Saturday, March 21 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.; and Sunday, March 22 from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m.
Maybe this is not the year to invest in antique art, but there is no harm in browsing the beautiful collections.
