We had a fine afternoon yesterday at the show. There was such a diversity of antique genres to view we hardly had enough time to take them all in. When we had questions we found the exhibitors to be most helpful and courteous. We went to the cafe and had a nice snack as well. All in all, a great exhibit that we will add to our annual events' list.
