The 2014 Nashville Antiques and Garden Show is going to be  held at the new convention center in downtown Nashville, Feb 6th-9th.   Last year was my first year setting up my wares and exhibiting at the show.  For me it was a huge success and tons of fun, so here I am again on my way to Nashville!  The eye popping floral displays, the fine quality antiques, and wonderful garden fare makes this one show not to miss.   The show is also held at the perfect time of the year when we are all ready to smell the flowers and get out of the cold.   For more information here is a link to the show.   The shop will be closed Feb. 6th-8th while I am exhibiting at the Nashville Show.  Come smell the flowers and see me in booth A-45!

This year’s inspiration for the window display came to me while unwrapping all the many boxes full of treasure that were from the container.    In the shop window all that merchandise seems to be spilling out of the shipping box; which is not far from exactly what happened just a few short weeks ago.   This year’s party is next week, Thursday night September 27th, from 4pm to 8pm.   Don’t miss it!   Click on photo to enlarge.

I cannot believe it is time to be thinking about the end of summer and beginning of fall, which means it is also time to be making plans now to save the date to attend the 2012 Fall Container Party at the shop.    I know I often say “do not miss this party,” but please do not miss this one!    We have a very special collection of European antiques that will be showcased this year as well as some noteworthy pieces from local estates that have been held back for just this event.    So join us Thursday, September 27th, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm for great hors d’oeuvres, great friends and FUN!    Bring a friend or three and spend the evening in historic Soulard enjoying one of the neighborhood’s fine restaurants after first coming to see all the new treasure at R. Ege Antiques.   “Like” us on Facebook and check out all the new merchandise posted weekly on the R. Ege Antiques page.
