Great Opening For the Vintage Show 2014

A big thanks to everyone who braved the weather to attend the opening last Saturday.   A few folks stayed a little longer than expected given the extremely heavy rainfall which began later in the evening.   We had a nice crowd and a lot of enthusiasm.  Congratulations to those who added to their art collections by snapping up some of the exceptional works that were offered.   There are still several gems available so make sure to stop in soon if you missed last weekend.  We will be open for a few hours this coming weekend but as always, it is a good idea to call ahead to make sure we are there.
