After being associated with antiques and collectibles for 35 years, I have decided to begin my own business dedicated to helping people appreciate their personal belongings. I am here to help you buy or sell your goods for the highest price, or to help you identify the items you have for personal or insurance purposes. Please let me know how I can be of service to you or your family.
The 2009 Treasure Market will likely be one of the most talked-about events of the year. Legions of people will line up March 26-29 in order to have a chance at buying some stellar merchandise. Proceeds help the acquisition fund for the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University. For further information, call (650) 326-4533, or visit www.museum.stanford.edu/tm.
The Alliance League of Los Gatos-Saratoga will sponsor another of its hit Antique Show-and-Tell programs April 18. It’s a chance to have your family heirlooms or flea market finds evaluated by a team of experts. Indulge in a gourmet lunch while you wait your turn. Proceeds fund a variety of philanthropic community projects. For more information, call (408) 278-5300.
A sizable chunk of the collecting community was sorely disappointed there was no show held in Pleasanton last October. The street faire was managed for many years by Don Frate who suddenly passed away Sept. 28. Jerry and Betsy Goldman - the promoters who organize the Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire the first Sunday of each month - will now sponsor these shows. The 2009 dates are May 24 and Oct. 11. Details: (510) 522-7500.
I welcome your e-mail letter describing your needs. I look at each and every person as an individual. Your requirements are of concern to me. Past clients know that I am dedicated and work on a strictly confidential level. Please write to me firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you today! And come see me at one of the many events in the Bay Area to talk about your needs.
