From the Editor’s Desk:

Changing times and the joys of paradise

O

Roberto Alvarado

n a recent trip south of the Rio Grande, one of many my wife, Suzy, and I take to Guadalajara, we wondered into a media and newsprint museum. It is housed in a turn-of-the-century neoclassic building from 1889 that is curiously named, The House of the Dogs. We stood in front of a monstrous linotype printer - a font stamping and casting machine about as big as a mid-sized elephant - and I stared at it in amazement. Why, it was just about 20 or so years ago when we printed our first magazine, El antiQuario, on an old Heidelberg press from about the Show Daily editor Roberto Alvarado checks out a same time period as that linotype. Linotypes, vintage linotype machine that was once used to cast the font casters for the old Heidelbergs, were type for newspapers. (Photo: Luisa Guiterrez.) used throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries. Even to this day, in many third world countries, it is not strange to see and hear one of these old relics churning out reams of print for tomorrow’s news. “Ka-chunga, ka-chunga, ka-chunga,” and these babies often go on churning all night long. One only needs an operator to stand by and supply more ink and oil to keep its rhythmic cadence going. Today, I can really appreciate how these machines impacted the media and the way we read news every day. Fast forward to 2014, where something new is always being developed, making what we used 6 months ago obsolete. I know I harp at you about the importance of staying on top of recent developments and inventions, but I must admit, even I am super overwhelmed. Not long ago, a talented coder (web and app developer) was the only link between us mere mortals and the geniuses who could make a web site run properly. Today, for a hundred bucks and a template kit, it seems anyone can build their own without knowing the jargon of code - that hieroglyphic computer talk. Our own web developer has promised to have us up and running very soon now. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. During the last show, Suzy got an unusual request. A fellow from the northeast, New Jersey I think, offered us his syndicated cartoons for use in Show Daily magazine. I’m forever inviting new blood into our world, so here he is: John Stinger. I have no doubt that his cartoons will sting you with their humor. Meet him on page 47. We have been blessed with having discovered this wonderful antiques paradise of Round Top, Warrenton and surrounding area, as have many of you. Sometimes the weather is unbearable - the heat, the cold, the rain and the wind - but the twice-a-year bonanza of finding the greatest trinkets and treasures, the camaraderie and everything else that goes along with it make like that perfect paradise island in the recent DiCaprio movie, The Beach. One on our roster of talented collaborators, namely Mr. Lou Christine (aka Executive VP), has decided that our boss lady and the queen bee of the hive, Suzy Kirchberg Alvarado, has not been properly accorded her due respect in regards to all she does for Show Daily. I guess I might have missed a few points in my last Editor’s Desk. So, after much filibustering, cajoling and intelligent debate, here is his article about her on page 145. I readily admit that Suzy is irreplaceable. She has done so much for our publication that I’ve decided she can stay for another 10-year contract with an option to renew. I love her as much as everyone else (but only I get to sleep with her - Har, har, har!). Here’s to another phenomenal show, yeeeee haaaa!!! 

Editorial - Dealer’s Corner:

F

Truths from a lesson hard-learned Lou Christine

or years, the purpose of this column has been for me to trade places and perhaps, in the confines of my own mind, walk in the “hawking shoes” of dealers here during Antiques Week. For those who wondered why my biannual dealer-helpinghand article was missing from last autumn’s edition, here are my thoughts. You see, despite my fame and stardom and my infinite watershed of talent, our editors and publishers didn’t think my fastball got over the plate. And after wowing them all these years, I may have taken it for granted that everything I throw down the pike or write was going to be embraced. URNT! That didn’t occur. It was humbling for your Dealer’s Corner hero to be told, by his partners no less - even if it was subjective - that my pitch (in their opinion) seemed way off the mark and even (gulp) stilted. So, I had to swallow my pride and make

MAIN OFFICE: 512-535-3705

some hard core determinations. While heading towards the showers I was feeling rejected about effort, delivery and creativity employed either from the left or right side of the brain. I forget which. So, for this edition of Show Daily, this is what the Dealer’s Corner man-of-the-hour has to say: Give thought to what you put out! Das’ right! Give thought to every aspect of your business! Give thought to your merchandising! Give thought to your choice of venues! Give thought to the way you advertise! Give serious thought to each and every thing where you place your hard earned money! (Unless you’re Hector the Collector. Seems everything that guy throws at the wall sticks.) Show Daily advertising, or the advertising and promoting one might do in any form including signage, business cards or bumper stickers matters. Shoot! Best advice in all matters is always shoot for excellence. continued on page 26

DEALER’S CORNER from page 25

If any dealer places an ad in any publication or makes a radio or TV commercial, for Pete’s sake, put some effort and creativity into it! Make it stand out. Don’t just blah-blah-blah and say, “But your big-time promotions should sound or look that way.” Be dynamic, bigger-than-big. Standing out is the name of the game. Employ the ideas of others too. That kid at your breakfast table each morning wolfing down the Kellog’s might even have a great idea for you. Sorry to say, too many merchants who are expecting great results put sparse energy into their promotions. I see it everywhere in every form of media. Dealers are business people. There are expectations and bottom lines. So next time you ka-plunk your geld for even business cards, make that card be all it can be. Make that radio spot shout out. Bring to life that newspaper, magazine or internet spot. Stand out and be somebody rather than risk being a nobody and ignored by the buying public. Stand back from your booth and give it a once or twice over. If you do, and with a little luck and good timing and blessings of the man upstairs, you’ll be successful and get your valuable message across to the buying public. And as for me, no way will I ever write a lazy bones Dealer’s Corner column again! 

Taking majolica on the road by Lou Christine

C California based majolica dealer Carol Mitchell.

arol Mitchell and her collection of majolica can be found inside the Cole Antique Show in Warrenton each spring and fall. The affable, attractive Californian and her pottery make the drive into these parts from the valley town of Hemet, half-way between L.A. and San Diego. As Carol tells it, she has been dealing in antiques for about 30 years. Initially she was a race horse trainer, but soured on horses after her son lost his life as a jockey. Like many in the business, Carol started out as a collector. She eventually decided to try her hand at making purchases she thought she could sell to other collectors. Carol had an eye for quality pieces and was

soon building budding relationships with many of those who dealt in majolica. Before long, her client base began to grow around the country. Majolica is not a ceramic, but pottery. The pottery was primarily produced in England, France, Italy and the United States. Its visual look varies, depending on its origin, but Carol says English and American majolica are similar because the lineage stems from England. The clay-based pieces are painted in various colors and often patterned, then ďŹ nished off with a clear, high-gloss glaze. The high-water mark of its existence was from 1850 until 1913. After that date, the production of majolica was banned in most places because of toxic properties in the lead-based paint. There are a few representations of reproduced majolica, but because of the ban, a discriminating eye can easily tell the difference. There’s nothing like the real thing. Carol, who is constantly collecting, brings a wide assortment each show. She usually carries from 150 to 200 top-notch pieces. Carol, in her easy going Californian continued on page 28

laid-back manner, says she appreciates the workmanship and the distinguished look of fine majolica. Her well-trained eye makes Carol very selective when it comes to buying, desiring to only show the crème dela creme. A glance at her collection tells one much about the quality of the work. Carol is a true road warrior, doing as many as 30 shows a year. She says she is cutting back just a tad this year, attending only the better shows with good traffic and with clients who appreciate her wares. Carol says that Texas is a hot bed for majolica and that there are many knowledgeable collectors who come to her booth at the Cole’s show. This will be the first show at the Cole building that Carol won’t be accompanied by Maggie, her loyal and loving Schnauzer - an on-the-road buddy who as a steady sidekick in the van - had registered over a half-million miles with Carol. Maggie moved on to doggie heaven not too long ago. In the meantime, if you want to see a vast collection for sale and gain some insight about majolica, stop by for a visit with Carol Mitchell. She’s a fountain of knowledge when it come to this unique style of pottery. 

Peanuts comic strip hits a home run at $26,000

A

n original Peanuts daily comic strip – drawn by the late iconic illustrator Charles Schulz and dated October 21, 1966 – sold for $26,450 at the first auction of the New Year held by Philip Weiss Auctions, in the firm’s gallery in Lynbrook, New York. The strip showed Linus, Peppermint Patty and Snoopy (in goggles), with a baseball reference. “We’ve sold many original Peanuts strips in previous sales, so we knew this one would do well,” said Philip Weiss of Philip Weiss Auctions. For the record, the strip easily surpassed its pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$20,000. Weiss added, “It was a great way to kick off 2014, with fresh-to-the-market merchandise – nothing re-hashed or recycled – and an eager bidding crowd.” The auction was dedicated mainly to comics (highlighted by an incredible attic find of Golden Age Comics and several estate collections, sports memorabilia including baseball and boxing items and comic art which, along with the Peanuts strip, featured some original Disney production cels and oil paintings, plus additional comic strips. 

Junkers by Lou Christine

nce upon a time, there were basically two visible types of vendors during Antiques’ Week. In one camp were collectors, dealers and authorities in antiques. In the other, there were the Junkers. Emma Lee Turney began it all in the area up in Round Top, featuring fine antiques way before Marburger Farm or any other venue for that matter. Yet down in Warrenton, the hoi polloi of neighboring antiquers and junkers were pretty much integrated before sightings of jewelers, kettle-korners or heated-vibrating recliner salespeople arrived on the scene.

Old bottles, rusty bits of iron, tin buckets and just an unusual assortment of odds and ends, old parts and pieces, salvaged treasures and “stuff” in general are what true junkers specialize in at some booths in the Warrenton area. (Photo: Lou Christine.)

SHOW DAILY APRIL 2014

There wasn’t much Mexican iron nor any boutiques and “say it ain’t so, Vern”, no prom night. It was mostly good-ole-boy junkers and ambitious antiquers. Comparing both, other than looking to deal, we’re talking opposites here. Yet both camps shared one common thread - knowledge. For both, knowledge was and always has been “money!” Astute players from either side can rattle off dates, describe (Am I Am) and various manufacturing processes ShawnEric Wilson, in front of and intelligently discuss a piece’s their booth at Das Blaue practicable aspects. The Antiquer, Haus Field in Warrenton, are among the true likely more silver-tongued, can Junkers who set up in the be seen planted in polished shoes area during the biannual while sporting a collared shirt. The antiques shows. (Photo: Lou Christine.) Junker is more likely to be sneaker or boot-footed with paint stains on his britches and battery-acid holes on his T-shirt. Junkers flash certain panache - no slaves to fashion. The Antiquer’s tables and chairs appear as if dinner could be served in a moment. The Junker’s 100-year-old drop leaf might have a half-an-inch of crud atop it, likely scratched, jammed up next to a hand-pushed lawn mower and a rusty glider. The Junkers, like the Antiquers, are the actual heart and soul of this show. Both are beautiful, vital, intrinsic parts continued on page 32

SHOW DAILY APRIL 2014 JUNKERS, from page 31

of the whole shebang. Sad to say, the Junkers are beginning to fade away. Some have died out. Others can’t keep up with the burgeoning costs. How much does one get for a rusty screwdriver or a thingamajig? How many do you have to sell to cover a nut verses Mr. Antiquer moving a choice showpiece item for 4K? As for the romantic aspects, a Junker’s life isn’t what it might be cracked up to be, like those portrayed on those lame reality shows - far from it. Junkers moan about even more back home. Certain city fathers take exception to the aesthetics of their livelihood. There can be failures to communicate - squabbles between neighbors too. Yet despite headaches or backaches and the constant uncertainty of the future, when it comes to a life on the road there’s a mentality that says something about what’s in a Junker’s blood that provides an indescribable satisfaction. So says long-time Warrenton junker Shawn Wilson, who scoots in from Kansas with wife, Tamara, showing in Das Blaue Haus Field, aka The Blue House. Wilson is a cog in what might be the last generation of junking wheelers-and-dealers. The 40-something family man is passionate about his chosen profession. “We junkers seem to have a seventh sense, able to visualize a role for something that’s laying in a ditch half covered in mud, maybe even broken in half”. The Junker may not know just what that discarded item might turn out to be after they apply their magic back in the shop but then, a week later, it walks out the door or gets scooped up at some flea market after a “yard-and-a half.” A Junker can make a tossed-away nothing a new reason to exist come four days later. The poor Antiquer waits patiently for his stuff to make a hundred. Wilson says he often unearths items with a past that’s vague at most. “Perhaps I’ll describe it as a rare lamp stand? Who knows? Could be an elaborate door jam?” Boom, 75 bucks! That’s how he makes his living. Wilson, with his junker-gumshoe determination, searches places everywhere. It pays off. He might discover a complete train set or a board game manufactured in the ’50s, brand new, in a box, never opened at some yard sale. There’s a lot to junk and much of it is just that. One has to invest and dig through a lot of junk to get to the good junk. It’s not about waiting for shoppers in a climate-controlled environment.

It’s work. There’s beaucoup gathering. Junkers are never off. It’s 24-7. A Junker’s wife may not recall how many times Mr. Eagle-Eye has suddenly braked in the middle of nowhere to haul back who-knows-what off the side of road. The seasoned junkman spots value. Much is about finding, then dealing, then gussie-ing things up, yet not too much. Junk ain’t supposed to shimmer. Their breed’s ranks are thinning. Nevertheless, Warrenton still has a decent sprinkling of Junkers. Too many to mention for now, but with the likes of Shawn and Tamara, along with other Blaue Haus Field neighbors - New York junkers Jim and Anna Jodway, and then there’s our Shree - the infamous Blue-Eyed Kansas Cowgirl - along with Minnesota’s oneand-only Jimmy Cool, there are still a few out there. Up the road, at Renck Field, there’s that loveable and jolly Warrenton fixture, Joe Pete - a junkman’s junkman. North Gate Field, a few fields over, features Junker “Barn Boy Clark.” Find yourself in the back of the Rose of Texas Field and you’re in bib-and-overalls territory visiting Ben and Ken, “Old School” Junkers in from Brownwood, Texas. The founders and publishers of Show Daily, Suzy and Roberto, got some rusty Junker-dust under their fingernails too. Other Junker’s names at the show are Jimmy Jones, Jeff Yuenling and John Hughes - who’s property is jammed with junk all year round in nearby Oldenburg. Want a Junkers education? Bar W Field, in Warrenton, is like Junker University. Support Junkers! Check out their stuff and talk some story. You’re apt to learn a whole bunch. 

Life-long collection from reclusive heiress Huguette Clark to go on sale this spring

I

mportant paintings by Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir are among 400 items that will be sold from a reclusive heiress’ private trove at Christie’s this spring, the auction house announced in February. The sale of Huguette Clark collection comes after a feud over her estate was settled in the fall. Some of the pieces were acquired by her father, a Montana copper king, railroad baron and senator who founded Las Vegas. Monet’s “Water Lilies,” which Christie’s said has not been publicly exhibited since 1926, is estimated to sell for $25 million to $35 million. Another masterpiece in the Huguette Clark was reportedly 24 when she purchased this painting sale is Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s by Claude Monet in the 1930s. It “Young Women Playing has not been publicly seen 1926 Badminton,” with a presale and is expected to bring more than $25 million. estimate of $10 million to $15 million. Both will be offered May 6. Other items from the collection will go on sale June 18. They include a Stradivari violin, Gilded Age furniture, rare books and other paintings. The total collection is expected to bring in more than $50 million. Selected highlights will go on view in London, Hong

Kong, Tokyo and in New York prior to the sale. Clark was the last surviving child of U.S. Senator William A. Clark, who was born in a log cabin in Pennsylvania and became one of the wealthiest men of his day. He is the namesake of Nevada’s Clark County and established its county seat, Las Vegas. A onetime socialite who became a social shadow, Huguette Clark died at 104 in 2011. She had a penthouse and two other apartments on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and exquisite homes in Santa Barbara, California, and New Canaan, Connecticut, but she elected to spend her last 20 years in a hospital. With no close relatives, she left a roughly $300 million estate and a swirl of questions about the input she’d gotten from a close circle of caregivers and advisers and about the extensive gifts and bequests she’d given them in return. She signed two wills within six weeks at age 98, the first bequeathing her riches mostly to about 20 distant relatives and the second cutting them out. The September settlement mainly benefited arts institutions and the distant relations. Some of Clark’s real estate and possessions have already been sold. A 2012 Christie’s auction of 17 pieces of her jewelry, including a ring with a rare pink 9-carat diamond, brought in about $21 million. 

William Livezey, 70, of New Sharon, IW, died on Dec. 11, 2013, at the Navarro Regional Hospital in Corsicana, Texas after an incident with an off-duty police officer that may leave some area dealers - those used to the trials and tribulations of long highway hours associated with the antiques business feeling more than just a little bit uncomfortable.

MAIN OFFICE: 512-535-3705

According to local news reports, Bill was traveling along Highway 31 near Kerens, Texas with a trailer load of reclaimed barn wood to be delivered to a client in Houston. As a dealer in antiques and salvaged materials for over 40 years, Bill was a seasoned highway veteran. Eye-witnessess report that at around 7 a.m., a man riding a motorcycle began chasing Bill’s red truck and trailer, making threatening gestures and attempting to force him off the highway, which he finally succeeded in doing. “It was frightening and extremely disturbing,” Dallas CBS news reports witness Claudette Powers saying. “I thought the Hells Angels arrived and that it was road rage.” Several motorists called 911 to report the traffic encounter to authorities. “It frightened me to see him that frightened.” However, it wasn’t the Hells Angels who forced William Livezey off the highway that morning, it was off-duty police continued on page 41

officer Ernesto Fierro. The out-of-uniform trooper placed Bill in handcuffs and other deputies arrived at the scene shortly thereafter. Livezey began complaining he was feeling ill. Officers realized he was going into cardiac arrest, removed the cuffs and started CPR procedures. An ambulance transported Bill to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Fierro has since been indited on criminal charges, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, official oppression and three counts of reckless driving, according to KCCI 8 News. He has been released on $85,000 bond. In the aftermath, Bill’s family is trying to pick up the pieces and move on. “Dad always looked forward to trips to Texas,” says daughter Sandy Hartgers, who is manning Bill’s booth in Bar W Field this spring along with her brother, John. “We are doing a small memorial table for him at the booth,” she adds. “I miss him so much! It is going to be hard. Dad already had a lot of things going on in Warrenton and we feel we have to try to take over the best we can.” William Livezey was born on March 4, 1943 in Mashaska

County, Iowa to William Howard and Mabel Augusta Wilcox Livezey. He was a lifelong antique collector and dealer and enjoyed picking, buying and selling antiques of all kinds. He was a member of the NRA and Gold Prospectors of America as well as being an avid outdoorsman. His family says most of all, he delighted in spending time with his grandchildren. Bill is survived by his wife of over 52 years, Jean Livezey - who has been a loyal partner in the business and a regular dealer to the biannual shows with her husband for years; two sons: Bill (and Sandi) and John (and Angela) Livezey; two daughters: Sue Davis and Sandy (and Bruce) Hartgers; eleven grandchildren; eight great grandchildren and a sister: Donna Hanna. Friends wishing to pay their respects during the show should stop by Bill’s regular location at Bar W Field in Warrenton, located on the main driveway next to the field office. Bill was a personal friend to Show Daily magazine and its team. He will be sadly missed. I fondly remember sharing tales, treasures, laughter and good times though many seasons with him and his family. Our sincere condolences and best wishes go out to them as they try to travel onward.

The art of wine

Three-liter bottle with label designed by Picasso sells for $1,800 at auction

A

1973, three liter bottle of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, bearing a label designed by Picasso, topped the single bottles of red Bordeaux in Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ sale of Fine Wine, Port & Champagne on Thursday, February 20, selling for $1,800. Mouton Rothschild was revolutionised by Baron Philippe de Rothschild when he blended his passion for wine with his love of art. For the 1945 vintage, de Rothschild celebrated the end of the Second World War by inviting French illustrator Philippe Jullian to design a V for Victory label. From there it became a tradition to commission artists of the era to design wine labels for the Chateau. Most recently, the French painter and sculptor Gay de Rougemount, well-known for his use of vibrant geometric motifs, designed the 2011 label. This 1973 example is en homage à Picasso, using a gauche painting produced by Picasso in December 1959 as the label to commemorate the year of his death. 1973 also marked the year that Mouton Rothschild was elevated from Second growth to First growth status. ‘First-

MAIN OFFICE: 512-535-3705

growth’ is a term originally used in 1855 to classify the top wines from the Bordeaux region, with only four other properties sharing this coveted title. The Chateau Mouton Rothschild opened the Museum of Wine in Art in 1945 and describe it as, “A magical place where so many artists and art forms, cultures and religions bear resounding witness to the eternal and fruitful dialogue between art & wine.” As testament to Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s enduring love of art, last year the Chateau opened another art gallery to house their travelling exhibition of wine labels. Other wines from the Rothschild stable in the sale included six bottles of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1967, with labels designed by leading French sculptor César Baldaccini, which sold for $1,900, and a magnum of 1958 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, which sold for $1,550. The sale was held at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ Donnington Priory Saleroom and a full list of sale results is available to view online at www.dreweatts.com. ❏

W

e are pleased to introduce John Stinger, our new cartoonist with Show Daily Magazine (see pages 51 and 84). John began selling cartoons at 16 to consumer publications including True, Argosy, For Men Only, Bowling News, Dude, Gent, Nugget, Hallmark Cards, and many others. While in the U.S. Air Force, he was selected Top Military Cartoonist for two years, winning two Department of Defense Citations for his editorial writing and cartoon skills. His weekly cartoon panel “Stingers Stunner” was syndicated by the Stars and Stripes and distributed to military bases worldwide for four years. After returning home, he started his corporate career as an advertising manager for a Fortune 500 company and continued to sell his work to various publications. He syndicated a daily cartoon to 65 newspapers in the US and Canada entitled “Big Business,” spoofing the funny side of the corporate world long before it became popular like it is today. While advancing his advertising career, he was promoted to director of marketing communications for another large firm and fell in love with his wife and antiques. They went to an auction on their honeymoon! Together, John and his future wife Susanne opened their first antique shop in a beautiful small country town of Crosswicks, NJ after learning much about the business selling their wares at flea markets in Englishtown, New Hope and Lambertville. At their shop, The Golden Dome, the couple honed their collecting, buying and antique business skills and soon were managing shows, conducting auctions and selling on eBay, while both maintaining corporate careers. John moved up to vice president of a NY/NJ based advertising agency and at that time wrote, illustrated and published his first humor book in 1992 called, “I Buy Junk. I Sell Antiques.” It has since become an industry classic with collectors, auctioneers and dealers. His second book, “There’s a collectible in my soup,” will be released in 2014. Welcome John! The following is a small bit from his new book. You start taking your lunch hour at a local thrift shop, checking out the dumpsters along the way. You work as a heavy equipment operator specializing in bridge construction but during your off hours, you find yourself going to yard sales looking for Shirley Temple dolls. You would rather spend Sunday at the flea market instead of watching

trading in your Mercedes SUV for an old school bus with no seats. You call in sick to your office so you can spend the day at a local repurposed shop.

You’re the CEO of a major corporation and you can’t wait until next Friday night’s Howdy Doody auction. You decide to re-decorate your entire living room to match the colors of your funky 1960s lava lamp. You and your wife go out on Halloween night dressed like two matching English cookie jars. You are being sedated on the operating room table for hip surgery but just before you pass out, you ask the doctor if his Mickey Mouse watch is original. You weep uncontrollably at yard sales because you know in your heart-of-hearts not all the items will find good homes. You get angry at your fiancé because she wants you to give up collecting hand decorated Lenox tea cups. You cry and blubber like a little girl when you find out that your son kicked your signed Vince Lombardi football out in the street, and now it’s stuck in a sewer drain pipe. You and your wife are finally invited to a posh dinner party and the host catches you turning over the brilliant cut glass punch bowl to see if it’s signed…and it’s still filled with champagne. ❏

Rodeo Royalty Roadshow is on the move by Derek Phillips

rowing up in Ennis, Texas, about 35 miles south of Dallas, Brandi Harper was deeply influenced by her mother. It was that influence that has spurred her on to be the owner and creator of Rodeo Royalty Roadshow, featuring ladies’ “hippie-romantic” wear at Zapp Hall in Warrenton. Brandi and her crew of 15 - which includes her and husband: Kevin; and sons: Jesse, Mason and Holden - have been working tirelessly as a team to take what was a hobby into a thriving repurposed women’s apparel business that is anchored in uniqueness and customer experience. “My mom was Czech and very frugal,” Brandi says. “She would mix and match furniture. I remember her being very thrifty. We would go to garage sales and buy vintage items. She would buy and paint old furniture for our home. Mom had a unique style and that was instilled in me.” There were also a few other influences which put her on her current path. As a

youngster, her babysitter was an antique dealer who had four barns full of items, and her teenage best friend’s mom owned a women’s apparel shop. Those two exposures fueled her curiosity and gave her experience in retail and merchandising. With three boys, Brandi, a stay-at-home mom, was making jewelry on the side and also decorating homes in the local area, about 500 in all. With the decline of the housing market, Brandi Brandi Harper, owner of Rodeo decided to take her skills on Royalty Roadshow, sports her the road and opened her first repurpoused ladies’ fashions. booth at Warrenton in 2008. (Photos: Derek Phillips.) Since then, she and her team have brought their repurposed women’s linen clothing, handmade jewelry and antique furniture to Warrenton’s Zapp Hall, The Chicken Ranch and The Marketplace Warrenton venues during the area’s semi-annual antique shows. This spring, Rodeo Royalty can still be found at Zapp, but are adding a new location at the recently purchased Merry Christmas - the old gerneral store building in Round Top,

located about a block north of Round Top Square. They also will continue to travel to shows countrywide from California to Massachusetts. “We will have our clothing, antiques and whatever we can find on our travels at both locations,” Brandi says. “We will have a special guest designer featured at our Round Top location. It is a great experience to get to do this as a living. We are focused on touching as many lives as possible.” Props are a huge part of the Rodeo Royalty adventure. This is where Kevin and the boys earn their keep, as it can take hours or even days to get the designs in place. At past shows, they have had an actual gypsy wagon staged at the front of her tents and they even built a store front facing at one show. This year, they will be featuring a vintage boat at Zapp Hall that will make the perfect spot for a fun souvenir photo-op for shoppers. The boat is a part of “Bohemian Sirens” – a nautical theme. “Sometimes, it takes two days to set up and I have to push them,” says Brandi, referring to her to family workhorses. “It’s not just about the things we are selling, it’s about the experience. I want people to leave as friends and feeling better after stopping in.” For more information about what the Rodeo Royalty Roadshow is all about, visit Zapp Hall, the Merry Christmas in Round Top, or go to spellboundcollections.com. (Spellbound Collections will be the new name for Brandi’s growing brand, replacing Rodeo Royalty Roadshow in the near future). ❏

Coin-op showers and laundry facilities Show Daily staff

I

t’s been a long, hot day of selling in the fields and you’re ready for a refreshing shower, a change of clean clothes and maybe a bite to eat. Unfortunately, most of the Warrenton fields do not provide shower or laundry facilities for their dealers. But fear not, there are a few places close by. The Hillcrest Inn, the two-story building in the heart of Warrenton, has coin operated showers, as well as washers and dryers, which all dealers are welcome to enjoy. The facilities are located below the Upper Deck, just behind the main building. On the north side of town, Bar W Field also offers two coin-op shower rooms which are available 24-hours to anyone wishing to freshen up and wash the dust away. Both show areas also provide evening dining options. The Upper Deck at Hillcrest serves hot meals, beer and wine, and is a great place to sit down and unwind for a while, or to catch a game on their big screen TVs. The Deck is also a fun spot for people-watching, offering a birds-eye view of the show. ❏

Abigal Taylor, live at the Old Feed Store

bigail Taylor, a 12year old musician/ singer/songwriter from Houston, Texas is showing us that country music still has a chance. She began playing guitar at the age of 8 and has since traveled all over Texas pursuing her music dream. Abby got her first taste of “live” performance during her elementary years when she had the opportunity as a fourth grader to play a song during a band’s break at the local VFW Hall. It was not long after that she experienced it again at a benefit in Luling, but this time in front of a much larger crowd. With no hesitation, she took the stage and the attention of many fans as she played her guitar and sang her favorite songs from a collection of classics she learned while playing guitar with her Dad. Since then, many opportunities have risen and Abigail spends a lot of her weekends, with Mom and Dad in tow, playing at some of her favorite venues.These venues include such places as The Humble Rodeo, Watermelon Thump, Scarecrow Festival, Stone Cellar, Round Top Chili Cookoff and many local county fairs. Her most recent event and most rewarding was taking stage with five of her local music heroes for a benefit in Brenham, Texas that raised over $30,000.

by Show Daily staff

When asked who her favorite artists are it doesn’t take long for her to spout out names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, George Strait and Willie Nelson. She will also broaden her interest with such modern names like Miranda Lambert, Hunter Hayes and Kacey Musgraves. Abby has even shared the stage with artists like Corey Morrow, Randy Rogers, Aarron Watson and Wade Bowen. When given the chance, you can find Abigail on any given weekend playing alongside local talent like Robbie Wooten, Anthony Moreno, Black Cat Choir and The Route 4 Band. These guys have given her the ins-andouts of the music scene and Abigail is all ears when it comes to anything they have to share. In her spare time, which seems to be less and less as her young career unfolds, she enjoys spending time with her family. Abigail enjoys hunting, fishing, song writing or just spending time out in the country taking it all in. Come here this amazing girl sing and play on the front porch of the Old Feed Store in Warrenton on Friday and Saturday, March 27 and 28. The Old Feed Store is located across the dirt road from the fire station, behind Warrenton Grocery. ❏

Jewelry designer works to support Native American traditions by Suzy Kirchberg

J

ewelry designer Dan “The Man” Dodson, owner of Impressions of Santa Fe, has been a long-time dealer in the Warrenton show area. “I had heard about the shows out here years ago. I went online and found a space available at Granny McCormick’s, that was about 12 years ago,” he says. “My first show didn’t go so well but I could see the potential. There seemed to be so much business in Warrenton. While I was at the show I met Jimmy Jones, we became friends right away. He helped me find a space that was in Doris’s Field, next to the Old Feed Store. This space worked much better and after several years there I developed a lot of clients. Many of my clients are wholesalers who are buying for their stores and other shows,” he explains. Dan’s specialty is southwestern-inspired jewelry designs in sterling silver, he also handles original pieces by various

MAIN OFFICE: 512-535-3705

Native American artists. “I have a great eye for beautiful Native American jewelry,” he says. “I love this art form and I care deeply for my Native American friends who make these treasures. It is a dying art form because so many young Native Americans are not following in their family tradition of jewelry making. I hope I am helping to keep it alive in a small way. The two favorite parts of what I do is one, seeing someone’s face light up when they get a new beautiful piece of jewelry for their collection and two, seeing how my hard work selling jewelry helps my friends and the families of the artisans who make these pieces.” Among artists Dodson supports are designers like Sunshine Reeves, Delbert Gordon, Darrel Becenti and Dennis Hogan. His original signature line is inspired by the Native American style, but he brings his own special touch to each creation. “I work hard every year to create new pieces,” he says. “I have a large following who love my designs and it always makes me happy when people like my work.” continued on page 56

Dodson, who hails from Santa Fe, New Mexico, has been involved in jewelry design for over a quarter of a century. “I moved to Santa Fe about 25 years ago and started working with my brother, who made jewelry in his work shop in Taos, New Mexico. After working with him for a year I set up my own work shop in Santa Fe,” he says. Although Dodson no longer runs a store front, he does travel across the country attending shows such as the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show and shows in Sun Valley, Idaho and Jackson Hole, Wyoming when he’s not busy creating new designs and jewelry prototypes. This spring, Dan Dodson won’t be at his usual spot by the Old Feed Store in Warrenton, but don’t worry - he can still be

Dan’s taken his operation up north to the Round Top area. “I have several friends who I do other shows with who have set up at Blue Hills for many years now and they do a great amount of business there,” he explains about the move. “It was a hard decision to make, I hope it was the correct one,” he says. “I hope all the great clients and friends I have made over the years in Warrenton will come to see me at my new location. I want to give a special thanks to Doris Eckermann and her family, they always treated me very well. I appreciate the opportunity and the friendship they extended to me over the years. Thank you Doris!” To see Dan Dodson’s original line of sterling and jewelry works created by many of his Native American artist friends, visitors should look for him at the Blue Hills venue in Round Top. Blue Hills is located a few miles north of the square, on Highway 237. Admission is free and there is plenty of on-site parking. ❏

OPINON:

New ivory ban turns collectors into criminals by Suzy Kirchberg

T

he Obama administration’s new ivory crackdown has collectors, dealers and auctioneers in a tizzy. The law, which now makes buying or selling any piece of ivory - from a piano key or ivory trimmed picture frame to a netsuke, chess set or sculpture - illegal, even if it was acquired legally decades ago. Until now, the rules regarding antique ivory were fairly straightforward and sensible. Ivory imported legally, which means prior to 1989, or after 1989 with a CITES certification that international standards were met, could be sold. Older ivory usually can be identified by coloring, stains, style, wear, quality, subject matter and more. Some features can be faked, but quality-wise, most older work simply can’t be duplicated today. And, in the past, the burden of proof on age was the responsibility of the government, not the owner. Under the new federal regulations, which were issued in

mid-February of this year, the ban on ivory in the United States is nearly 100-percent (and that includes rhinoceros ivory). In effect, every collector, dealer, auction house or just regular person who may own or have inherited any piece of ivory - no matter the size or type of piece - is banned from selling it. Period. Every flea market, junk shop, estate sale, antique store, auction showroom and antique show is at risk of raids, confiscations, and prosecutions. In California, the crackdown has already begun, with raids being reported on area businesses. It appears New York is next in line to take the ruling to the full measure of the law. It has become an “enforcement priority” with the U.S. Department of Fish and Game. And, unfortunately, it is unlikely any living elephant is going to have a better chance of survival as a result of the crackdown, because as antiques

Mailbag Hi there Show Daily, We are Aussie newbies needing help! We’re planning on attending the Spring weekend for three days between the 2 and the 5th April. We are particularly interested in mid-century antiques, including ceramics, kitchenalia and small homewares (unfortunately we cannot take any larger furniture items with us!!). As there is a plethora of stalls, and I know the traffic can be bad, do you have any hot tips for where we should target, and at what time of day. We are also in our early 30s so keen to hang out with some other young people too! We are looking at staying in either La Grange or Bastrop. Thanks in advance, Louise Wellington - via e-mail

JillSuzanne and John say they, like so many dealers here, come not just for business but for the brother-and-sisterhood that is apparent at the show. Great, tender and longstanding relationships have been formed. They enjoy the camaraderie, rubbing elbows, sharing beers and telling stories with their twice-a-year, twoweek neighbors. There’s lots of kidding and a spirit has developed that they say is different from most of the other shows they have attended. Over the past several seasons, JillSuzanne and John have hosted a down-home party each show with a good ‘ole boy country band -The Cory Mitchell Band - and refreshments thrown in to boot. This spring, the party will be held Saturday night, April 5. Along with the hoopla and music, a bombastic sale is planned to unload whatever goods have not been swept away during the previous two weeks. Stop by and say “hi” to JillSuzanne. She loves meeting people and answering questions about her profession, and if you have any Elvis stories, all the better. ❏

IVORY BAN, from page 59

- well, the elephants who lost their lives for the commodity of their tusks are already long gone. Don’t get me wrong, I am an animal lover. But the fact of the matter is that we are talking about antiques and works of art here (pieces that were created and actions that were legal during their time), not saving elephants. If an elephant was killed 80 years ago and his tusk was turned into a work of art, should the present-day owner be held responsible for the elephant’s death and punished by having the piece confiscated and destroyed? The new ivory rules state that no imports are allowed, not even antiques, regardless of country of origin. In the past, antique ivory could be brought to the U.S. with a CITES (Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) certificate and border check. Now it can not. All exports are banned, except for pieces that can be proven

to have been here for over 100 years. So musical instruments, for example, with ivory adornments can not leave or enter the country, even if they belong to a musician and are for personal use while on tour. All across-state-line transactions are prohibited, except for antiques, where “documented evidence of age” must be provided. Many dealers say that such documentation will be practically impossible to provide since statements attesting to the age of ivory pieces were not important 100 years ago (when the items were legal). Sales within state are prohibited, unless a seller can demonstrate that the ivory was lawfully imported prior to 1990 (or prior to 1975 if it’s Asian ivory). Again, how does one prove the point? So, rather than helping to save elephants, which I am all for, my only conclusion is that the new ruling will drive up the price of ivory on the black market, and more than likely will put elephants at greater risk for those willing to buck the system in return for a bigger bang for their own personal big bucks. In the meantime, valuable works of art are at risk of being destroyed over crimes, which were legal during their time, that were commited centuries ago. How does making an 18th century ivory cross illegal (or difficult at best) to own save an elephant? It doesn’t. ❏

Rare botanical book brings over $40,000

wo books are believed to have set record auction prices in February at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ sale of the Library of a Gentleman. One of these was Jacob Christian Schaeffer’s early work on fungi that sold for $40,500. Overall, the single owner collection of natural history books was eagerly received by bidders, with 92 percent of the 234 lots selling for a total of $670,750. Rupert Powell, Deputy Chairman of Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions said: “Schaeffer’s work on the fungi is one of the most exceptional; the record breaking price it achieved in the saleroom yesterday reflected the sale as a whole and Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions’ position in the currently buoyant market. We are thrilled with the result.” The 18th century Fungorum Qui in Bavaria et Palatinatu circa Ratisbonam Nascuntur Icones Natvis Coloribus Expressae was an exceptional third edition set of one of the earliest and best-illustrated works on fungi beautifully bound in a contemporary full red morocco binding. As far as the auction house is aware, it is the highest price achieved for the work, breaking all previous records. Schaeffer was a Prussian botanist and zoologist who was elected to the academies in Uppsala and Berlin, and was a Fellow of the Royal Society. Of his extensive publications, the Fungorum was one of his most spectacular. ❏

Meet Randy Rodriguez Lou Christine

e’s got the look of a real cowboy, down to the hat and flappedpocket western shirt, ornate belt-buckled jeans and pointed, patterned leather boots that support a pair of sturdy legs which are bowed a bit, probably because Randy has been straddling a horse since he was just three years old. So, when it comes to cowboy-ing, Randy Rodriguez is the real deal. Along with that, at 55, Randy still boasts leading-man’s looks. I’ve known the dude for about 15 years and he has always gotten better smiles back from the fairer sex than I do. Anyone who knows Randy can tell you he is friendly and easy-going as well as articulate and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the relics and customs of the great Southwest. Randy is out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, as is Rio Bravo Trading Company, his shop, which is usually filled to the brim with all kinds of cowboy and Indian regalia. If one is looking for spurs, chaps, handmade saddles, vintage Southwestern, turquoise or genuine Indian jewelry, Rio Bravo carries it. The Rodriguez clan is far from newcomers to the “Land of

the Enchantment”. As Randy tells it, his family first showed up in the New World direct from Spain, via Florida, in the early 16th century, during the dark times of the Spanish Inquisition. The Inquisition didn’t offer many options to the Rodriguez’, yet with their horseman skills, the new world looked tempting. The Rodriguez’ carved out an existence under what at first were brutal circumstances - dealing with all the elements and hardships one can imagine. “We’re horsemen and always have been horsemen,” says Randy, proud of his equestrian roots and heritage. His ilk crossed the wildlands, rivers and prairies way before homesteaders came over a hundred years later. Randy grew up a “poke” and remained on the rodeo circuit until he was 24. At the same time, he also worked as a machinist. During the slowdown in the early ‘80s, Randy got laid off and had to rely on his brawn by chopping and selling chords of wood for financial survival. “I had just delivered a chord of wood to a woman and was continued on page 66

Tree Park: When you reach it, you know you’ve arrived by Lou Chrisitine

arrold and Wren Mertz’s Tree Park Antiques is the very first of the major shows shoppers come upon on the right side of Highway 237 when heading into Warrenton from La Grange. You know you’ve reached the shows, because it’s where the line-up of big-top tents begins. It is also the south bookend of the Warrenton-Round Top show area. As Darrold tells it, the inception of his Tree Park field began with him parking an RV out front on his property in 1993. The Mertz’s were observing Antiques’ Week beginning to spread

out in various directions, so the local home builder and then wife Sharon, saw opportunity to rent RV space on their plot of land with a picturesque lake plopped in the middle. Jerry and Millie Anderson were their first RV hook-up. In from Beaumont, Texas, and as Mertz tells it, they still come and hook-up each and every show and have done so for 20 years. Darrold says that Jerry always exclaims, “I’ll be back every show and if I’m not here, I’m dead!” How’s that for a reservation? In 1994, Mertz further caught the spirit and opened Tree Park as an antiques destination, bringing in quality dealers. Since then, Tree Park has evolved with booth tents and a permanent building. Larry and Shirley Graham were one of the very first to set up on the property as dealers and Maria Chayas, from San Antonio, has too been a stalwart clientdealer and steady fixture at Tree Park for years. Why not? Darrold is easy going, a straight shooter who aims to help his dealers. Tree Park offers a tranquil setting with lots of diverse and talented folks who’ve been setting up there for years. A few years back, Darrold lost Sharon to cancer after she put up a heck of a fight. As fate would have it, Darrold met Wren and they have since married. Wren has been a terrific fit for both Darrold and Tree Park. Darrold appreciates her continued on page 68

They are three couples; the Lmkye’s, Doug and Ann; the Dressel’s, Robert and Paula; and the Itz’s, Rich and Billi. They can be counted on to show like the blue bonnets that sprout up evey spring. The field has a great mix of tried-and-true dealers like The Hen Delivers, carrying kitchen islands and vintage schoolhouse items. Ginger’s pink umbrella is another landmark, letting people know where they are as a place of reference. DiAnn and Larry carry American country primitives at their Simple Cottage booth. One can find cowhides and old barn wood in the Field, and then there are dealers extraordinaire, Donna Frank and husband Randy, displaying their array of vintage rings and stunning bracelets. Darrold also says there’s a lot of new blood coming in for this show, making Tree Park’s line up of dealers even more enticing.

Sotheby’s takes back diamond it sold for over $83 million

The 59.60-carat, internally flawless pink gem, which was described by Sotheby’s as being, “one of the most remarkable gems ever to appear at auction,” sold in November for over $83 million. The lucky buyer, Isaac Wolf, a New York-based diamond cutter, out-bid three other buyers and renamed the stone “The Pink Dream”. But the dream didn’t last long. The rare pink diamond is now back in Sotheby’s inventory after the buyer couldn’t pay for the jewel and defaulted. According to the Associated Press, Sotheby’s is currently in talks with Isaac Wolf, while considering other alternatives to repossessing the stone. The auction house currently has it listed as $72 million worth of inventory. “In the meantime,” Sotheby’s chief financial officer, Patrick McClymont, said, “we are quite comfortable with our valuation and see real value in owning the diamond at this price.” Sotheby’s stock fell 6.7 percent after news of the default was made public in early March. At press time, their stock was trading at $47 per share. ❏

Meet Marge Rolls by Derek Philips

L

ittle did Marge Rolls know that when she attended her first auction with her husband, Bob, in the 1960s that it would eventually lead to a 40-year career as a glass dealer in the show world circuit. Invited by a family member, the couple, from West Seneca, New York, knew they were into something from the moment they observed what was up for purchase. “We immediately liked what we saw,” said Marge, a stay at home mom at the time as a mother of four. “We started buying things we could use in our home like vases and candy dishes. We started collecting and when we realized we couldn’t buy any more, we started selling in the mid-1970s. We had a lot of miscellaneous glass so we decided to zone in on green painted and depression glass with great colors, shapes and perfect for going in the home.” As fledgling dealers, one of the main challenges of getting the business going was raising kids at the same time. The Roll’s had to make plans with the youngsters in mind and combined selling with family outings. “We had four kids and we couldn’t be away from home long, so we were limited to the summer,” said Marge, whose business became known as Marge’s Bazaar. “We would take the kids and just go to flea markets and that helped pay for our collection.” From that humble beginning, things grew and grew. Over the years, they were going to major shows in Tennessee, Florida and Massachusetts. It was on a trip to Florida that a dealer that set up next to the Roll’s told them about the shows in Texas and they decided to check them out. Their first show was in 2000 at Bar W in Warrenton and after three shows they eventually moved to Das Gruene Haus for better visibility and a location better suited to their glass, understanding those two important aspects of selling from years of experience. More of their experience also helped them adjust as the Texas shows grew, the internet came into its own and the demographics of the shoppers shifted. They had to cut prices continued on page 70

and reduce their buying, but they have weathered those situations. “Bar W was about a quarter of the size it is now and Cole’s wasn’t even there,” said Marge, recalling days that seemed forgotten. “Vendors started putting things online at lower prices even though we would have paid more for them and the younger generation aren’t collectors... they are functional and decorator buyers.” Still, Bob and Marge, along with their son, also Bob, recently packed up their 15-passenger van with anywhere from 150-200 banana boxes filled with glassware, turkey china platters and depression and elegant glass, for the biannual three-day, 1,600-mile trip from New York to Warrenton. The fuel cost of that first trip has more than tripled, but the Rolls pay it no mind as Texas has become their favorite show. “The people in Texas are always very friendly and we always have a great show,” said Marge, with one last reason why Texas is so special. “We also get a chance to visit with our daughter in Galveston.” ❏ Dealers, make it easy for buyers to find you!

A little Cajun flavor comes to Warrenton by Derek Philips

M

any show goers have probably never heard of a beignet (pronounced ben-yay), much less eaten one. But those who have tasted the simple, sweet delicacy, not only know how to properly pronounce the name of the famous French doughnut, they understand the charm and allure of this special delight. It’s almost assured that anyone who has eaten a beignet for the first time while in New Orleans did so at the world famous Café Du Monde in the French Market District. For Eric Henry, a native of Patterson, La., this assessment holds true. “I am like everyone whose first experience eating a beignet was at Café Du Monde,” said Eric, who had his first

bite of the pastry in his early teens. “It’s a well-known fact that if you wanted to have a coffee and a doughnut that’s where you go.” And, there is good news for shoppers who have never had a beignet or for those who want to revisit their fabulous taste. You won’t have to travel to New Orleans to get one. Eric, owner of Cajun Flavor, a mobile food trailer anchored at The Chicken Ranch in Warrenton, is bringing more than 1,200 beignets and 12 pounds of powdered sugar to satisfy rookies’ and veterans’ tastes alike. Eric returns to Warrenton for his second stint after selling 1,000 beignets last show. “I have been going all over to festivals and everyone loves funnel cakes,” said Eric, who is an outboard motor mechanic turned on-the-road chef. “When people try a beignet, they always like it over a funnel cake and it’s not like a doughnut. They must be eaten hot. Once someone has had one they always come back for more.” Beignets, which incidentally are the official doughnuts of the state of Louisiana, are basically small, square pieces of pastry that is deep fried and showered with powdered sugar. Although it seems so simple, it has a flavor all its own -continued on page 72

not mention the fun aftermath of leaving a little of the powdered sugar on faces and shirts. Lisa Stansbury, a native Lafayette, La., and owner of Antiques on the Square in Fayetteville can attest to that. “You have to have one… there’s nothing like it,” Lisa said. “You always get a little messy on your face. It���s a wonderful experience.” If a beignet is not for you, Eric also has a variety of Cajun specialties available, including fried alligator, boudin, gumbo, stews and jumbalaya. He changes his menu daily and he serves it all up fresh from his trailer, hoping to create a little of the Cajun culture right in the middle of Warrenton. “It’s part of the Cajun culture that we usually have and outside cookout once a week where we can enjoy good food and hangout,” Eric said. “We want shoppers and vendors to experience something that you don’t get every day, especially here at the shows.” So for something different in terms of fare, head over to The Chicken Ranch and dive into some chow imported directly from Louisiana. The Chicken Ranch is located of the west side of Highway 237 next to The Marketplace and across from Tin Star. Check your Show Daily map for the exact location. o

Rare 1974 aluminum penny discovered

A

n aluminum 1974-D penny, said to be one of only a small handful in existence and minted in Denver, Colorado, was inherited by a man whose father worked at the Colorado mint over 30 years ago and is said to be worth a potential fortune. When the man, real estate agent Randy Lawrence of La Jolla, California, moved from Denver to California last year, he decided to sell his father’s collection of coins, which he kept in a sandwich baggie in his car trunk for nearly a month after the move, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. The owner of the shop, Michael McConnell, identified the aluminum penny as rare and its value could be anywhere from $250,000 to 2 million dollars. Although McConnell purchased the collection outright, he called Lawrence to tell him it was worth much more than either had imagined. “I wouldn’t be able to sleep without notifying him,” the Union-Tribune reports McConnell explaining. The plan is to auction the penny in April (Heritage Auctions of Dallas, Texas, will handle the sale), with the dealer and owner splitting the profit and donating upwards to $100,00 to a southern California homeless shelter. Although stories of these pennies have existed, one has

never been seen publicly. A few aluminum pennies minted in Philadelphia in 1974 were shown to members of Congress for approval, but the plan to circulate aluminum pennies was never approved. All of the coins were to be destroyed, but a few of the samples disappeared to sticky hands. It is believed that between 5 to 14 coins are unaccounted for. PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) consultant Fred Weinberg, who was among those involved in the research and authentication process for the 1974-D aluminum coin, stated that while there’s considerable information about 1974 Philadelphia Mint aluminum cent, he could only find one printed reference about any produced at the Denver Mint. The 1974 aluminum penny should not to be confused with the 1943 zinc-coated steel penny made to save copper during World War II. The United States government closed its investigation of any missing 1974 aluminum cents by February 1976 having found, in the government’s own words “no evidence of criminal intent” by anyone possessing any of the coins, according to a February 21, 1976 story in Numismatic News. ❏

High-tech Round Top warehouse caters to antiques dealers shoppers also enjoy the peace of mind knowing that Distinguished Transport is a fully licensed, insured and uniquely skilled transporter of antiques, artwork and fine furnishings. “All of us at Distinguished Transport believe that this new warehouse is the next step for us in continuing to serve as a trusted partner to the Round Top vendors and clients,” said Jonathan. “We’re ready to provide the industry expertise, customized storage solutions and client services that Round Top vendors and visitors require. When choosing a transport and storage provider, it’s important to know that the company you choose understands antiques, follows the proper business confidentiality and safety protocols, and that its facility is designed to best accommodate the product and clients.” To learn more about Distinguished Transport, visit www.distinguishedtransport.com or www.facebook.com/ DistinguisedTransport. ❏

(John Stinger.)

new high-tech warehouse is being built in Round Top and geared toward vendors who struggle with the logistics of moving their goods from point-topoint during the shows twice a year. This situation, with time and money so tightly stretched, has been the bane of existence for many dealers. Fortunately, someone has listened to the call of distress. Distinguished Transport, the preferred shipper for Marburger Farms and whose trucks have become a familiar sight in Round Top during the past four years, has been constructing the warehouse over the past few months and it is planned to be operational in April. “Many Round Top vendors must either store their show product in Houston, which means shipping it back and forth for each show, or transporting the items from their home base,” said Jonathan Higley, Distinguished Transport’s project manager. “This new warehouse will provide a convenient and cost effective option for the show vendors.” The 6,000-plus square-foot facility offers enhanced shipping, secure and climate controlled storage with multilevel racking systems, receiving docks, crate construction and a humidity controlled artwork storage. Surveillance cameras throughout the warehouse will provide a myriad of security support techniques.

Old Glory Antiques features painting demonstrations and more in Burton

by Suzy Kirchberg

e have only been coming to the shows for about two years, although I had been wanting to come for many years,” says Holly Kuhn, owner of the Denver, Colorado based Old Glory Antiques. Kuhn is opening a pop-up branch of her store in Burton this spring for the first time. “What attracted us to Burton initially was the property itself - a charming 100-year-old house that had been beautifully and lovingly maintained, an amazing building for a shop, and a beautiful pecan tree. After we bought the property, we discovered what a lovely town Burton is.” “I am so looking forward to our grand Texas opening! We have invited a special guest to help us celebrate. Jen O’Connor, of Earth Angels Studios, will be coming and bringing with her a fabulous showcase of art and handmade from the very talented artists she represents. We will have appearances and demonstrations by several of the artists themselves.” Earth Angels Studios’ featured artisits include Jennifer Lanne, Dara DiMagno, Lisa Leonard, Laurie Meseroll, Letty Worley, and more. There will be special appearances by artists Laurie Meseroll, Letty Worley and Sue Parker on March 28, 29 and 30 at Old Glory in Burton, including painting demonstrations by Laurie Meseroll. “Jen will be

celebrating her birthday while she is here, so we will be having birthday cake and treats on Saturday afternoon,” Holly says excitedly. “What I like best about the shows here is, without a doubt, the people. Friendly, kind, hard-working, enthusiastic, creative, and so much fun to be around. I always leave here feeling inspired, refreshed and motivated by the dealers and shoppers alike!” Holly has been filling the store for almost a year in anticipation of the event. Some of my favorite pieces, she says,include two very large game wheels from the early 1900s. “They are from a carnival that played in Pittsburgh, and they are wonderful!” She is also introducing her line of upholstered chairs this spring - vintage fabric combined with vintage frames for one-of-a-kind pieces, all made in America. These pieces exhibit expert craftsmanship and are truly beautiful and unique. Old Glory Antiques offers an ever-changing collection of quality antiques and home décor. Holly presents a fresh take on old finds, combining worn wood finishes, vintage industrial pieces, architectural salvage and upholstered pieces with a sense of ease and sophistication. The Texas shop will be open two times a year - during the spring and fall Antiques Week. The grand Texas opening of is March 27 through April 3, open 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Old Glory is located at 701 N. Main Street in Burton, which is just off Hwy 290, a few miles east of Carmine. For more info visit oldgloryantiquesinc.com or call 303-798-4212. ❏

Fayetteville’s ArtWalk encourages children in rural Texas communities

O

by Show Daily staff

n May 3rd and 4th, fine-art artists from all over Texas and the surrounding region will descend on the picturesque town square of Fayetteville, Texas, to show and sell the very best of their creations. Started years ago as a small local artist event, ArtWalk 2014 has grown and morphed into a juried art show of the highest caliber, while sweetening the visit for the exhibitors by boasting award monies of more than $7,000. Sponsored by Fayetteville’s own ARTS for Rural Texas, this year’s event will host more than 60 artists who will be shopping their wares for two days amid the sounds of bluegrass music during the most beautiful time of year in central Texas. Everyone is invited to stroll through the outdoor booths and meet the artists and see their original pieces of work or enjoy a glass of wine from the wine tasting booth while sitting and enjoying the casual gazebo concert. “We try to make it fun for the artists, so it’s a relaxed and enjoyable show,” said Jeanne Schilling, executive director of ARTS for Rural Texas. “It’s definitely original and smaller.” The mission of ARTS is to bring the arts to the rural community with an emphasis on educational opportunities for the kids. With that in mind, there will be plenty of free activities for the kids to enjoy. This year Puppet Pizzazz will be wowing all in a free indoor performance on Saturday in

MAIN OFFICE: 512-535-3705

ARTS gallery on the square. Also, kids can create their own art at the children’s booth or just get that face painted for nothing but a smile. “We want those deeply interested in art to have a good time, as well the children,” Jeanne said. “At the children’s booth the kids can be dropped off while the parents can go to the art booths.” ArtWalk is an important source of funding for the ARTS programs like Art After School which offers free art classes in eight different rural school districts and the Fine Art Assemblies that bring performers like Houston Grand Opera and Ballet Austin to the local schools. The attending artists are invited to donate one piece of original art that will later be auctioned to support these important programs. Jeanne said ArtWalk is more than just a great fine art show. It is an event celebrating the best of American rural town life. “It’s a festival atmosphere the entire family can enjoy in the safe and friendly environment of a small town,” Jeanne said. “Wild flowers are out and Fayetteville has plenty of bed and breakfastes. It’s also a great day trip from Houston or Austin.” For more info about ArtWalk visit artsforruraltexas.org, e-mail info@artsforruraltexas.org or call 979-378-2113. ❏

Babe Ruth’s pocket watch flies out of the ballpark at auction

B

abe Ruth’s pocket watch from the 1923 World Series sold for $717,000 in February at auction in New York City. The pentagonal 14K gold watch was bought by a telephone bidder who is remaining anonymous, Heritage Auctions said. The timepiece was part of a set given to Ruth and his Yankees teammates after they beat their rivals, the New York Giants, in the 1923 World Series. The watch is engraved with a picture of a pitcher, hitter and catcher and a ball in flight. It is inscribed, “Presented by Baseball Commissioner to George H. Ruth.” Ruth batted .368 and hit three home runs in the series, the first of the Yankees’ 27 world championships. Ruth later gave the watch to a friend, Charlie Schwefel. The seller in February’s auction was a collector who had acquired the watch from a member of Schwefel’s family, Heritage Auctions said. Another highlight of the February sale was a 1911 gameused bat from “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, which sold for $956,000. Jackson was banned from baseball after he and his Chicago White Sox teammates were accused of fixing the 1919 World Series. ❏

The four works stand as a monument to the spectacular artistic collaboration and friendship between legendary dancer and choreographer Paul Taylor and Robert Rauschenberg – two towering cultural figures of the 20th century. Two works will be offered on the evening of May 14, including a rare Combine from circa 1954 (estimated 5 to $7 million), and two will be offered the following day. The group includes pieces that were gifted by the artist and one that was created especially for one of Paul Taylor’s productions. The auctions will follow the celebration of the dance company’s 60th anniversary in March; a milestone that also commemorates the auspicious year that Taylor and Rauschenberg first met in a Manhattan gallery. Highlights will be shown at Sotheby’s in Los Angeles in March and all four works will be exhibited in New York beginning May 9. ❏

Asian antiques in Shelby by Derek Phillips

A

t the shows you may find a few dealers selling Asian antiques, but it’s likely that you will not see anyone who specializes in the merchandise unless you head up to the Shelby Antiques Show in Harmonie Hall. Asian Willow Gallery, created by Gary Des Marais and Steven Farkas in 2006 in St. Petersburg, Florida, is on hand and carries the best in porcelain, furniture, cloisonne and Champleve from the Qing Dynasty of China and the Meiji Period of Japan. The two make occasional buying trips to China, but due to the changing economy and import/export laws in that communist country, they now mostly buy through auction houses in the U.S and private estates. “I have a passion for all things Asian and the people,” said Gary, who has had some education in the arts field, but didn’t quite finish as he decided to open his own business instead. “No one had a business in the Tampa Bay area that focused

completely on Asian items. So I decided to create a niche market. I am not an expert, but I have a lot of experience and I was able to narrow down my focus to Asian.” Gary, who grew up in the Boston area, took a road to handling Asian antiques that started at the very early age of 12 when he began collecting antique books, which he said were inexpensive so he could afford them. Unlike most kids his age, instead of going to baseball games he preferred to tour the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and it was there that he became fascinated with Asian art. Gary opened a hair salon in 1978 as his primary business, which supported his free time for pursuing antiques. In 1980, he opened his first antiques shop in Tampa and ran both businesses until 1994. Then he went into the antique business full time. He travelled the antique show circuit up continued on page 97

During the antique weeks, crowds are astounding and the town’s merchants do a great job of hosting the vast numbers - especially considering that Round Top is among the smallest incorporated cities in Texas, with a population of about 90. This historical treasure is at once charming in its authenticity and a surprisingly exciting place to be, when one experiences it fully. What could easily be a sleepy, don’t blink or you’ll miss it, point in the road is actually a destination and center for arts and diverse fun.

The crazy life of an international antiques dealer

hen the opening day at Marburger Farm antiques show finally arrives excited customers flood the field looking for just the right piece to compliment and enrich their homes. Inspiration and enthusiasm charge the morning air as they are greeted by stall after stall of freshly harvested bounty from the farthest corners of the world. My customers become friends as the years pass and new friendships are added each spring and fall. Stories are swapped and pictures are shared. Sometimes my friends in Texas even ask if I would ever consider taking someone along on my buying trips. So I would like to offer a peek behind the scenes of my fabulous life as an international antiques dealer. Every spring and fall, just after the Round Top shows, I head across “the pond” for 4-6 weeks. Even though I speak French in the markets, I’m actually not thinking in French until the time I make my way home. I still find myself in situations that I have not prepared for. I can speak in French about any antique, including price, age, provenance and what

Last fall, I arrived in Paris to pick up the 16’ box truck I reserved only to find that the only truck on the lot was an extra long Sprinter. I had one day to get the truck, collect euros at the bank and drive to the south of France for a large international fair. I would be driving for about 9 hours to get to the hotel to take about 4 hours of fitful, jet-lagged sleep. I could wait until the next day and get a larger truck and miss

an antiques fair I had crossed the ocean to attend, or I could take the Sprinter van. I took the Sprinter. It was a nice van, lots of room in the back, extra tall. I quite enjoyed driving it. I made it to the fair, bought well and loaded the treasures in the Sprinter, which I named Lucy. The day was still young and I had heard about a village where another smaller weekly show, a brocante, was held in the streets. Lucy and I set off with my trusty GPS. The device has a British accent and I call him George. George generally tried to find the shortest distance between two points, not the easiest route.

At first everything was great. I followed the wide winding road as the hills rolled off around me and nurtured vineyards and fields of olive trees and mustard. The hills rose higher and rocky jagged outcroppings appeared. It was very beautiful as I turned onto a smaller, more winding road that George strongly suggested I take. There were switch-backs and hairpin turns but I was in a smaller vehicle than I normally drive in Europe. George and Lucy and I were getting along really well. As I took the next turn suggested by George, there appeared the most picturesque ancient village. Lucy climbed sharply and made a rather sharp turn, then another.

We nodded in agreement. My French left me. I asked if he could find any wood for burning. He looked at me like I had grown a second head and I realized he thought I was going to set Lucy on fire. With sign language and broken phrases, I explained that if we could somehow build up wood under the rear wheel, maybe I could get traction and drive off the small cliff I was stranded on. He ran down the hill to fetch wood from home. This brought his father, mother and uncle to the scene of the disaster. They all used the French curse word. Several times.

I told him he was my savior and an angel and I shoved 10 euros into his hand when he reached out to shake my hand. He was so shocked, he didn’t protest. He thanked me, He will forever be the 10-year-old who saved me in that tiny town in France. I’m sure I will forever be the crazy American blonde woman he stopped from setting her van on fire.

Two couples + Creative kismet = Kindred spirits in Round Top by Karen Weir-Jimerson

f you’re looking for the perfect eclectic cowboy wall art to go with a pimento-red handmade willow rocker, you’ll likely meet the creators of both — showing together in two locations — Marburger Farm Antique Show (Tent G) and new this spring on The Triangle in Round Top (near The Gypsy Wagon, Bonedust and Mustard Seed). Found objects are the common denominator of the work of the two husband-and-wife artists from Vintage Sculpture and Around the Bend. Brad and Sundie Ruppert, of Vintage Sculpture, use cast-off manufactured items to make their sculptures, wall hangings and furniture. Rick and Denise Pratt, of Around the Bend, use harvested natural twigs and reclaimed materials to create furniture, home décor and luscious pillows. “We’ve made most of our best friends through showing at Round Top,” says Sundie. “The first time we set up here (at Emma Lee Turney’s Folk Art Show), we saw the Pratts

and their furniture and I thought, ‘Those people seem fun.’” Those people were Rick and Denise Pratt. “We all live the same type of life,” says Denise Pratt. “We are definitely kindred spirits,” agrees Brad Ruppert. The Pratts have been showing at Round Top since the fall of 1990 and the Rupperts since 2001. They’ve also paired up at shows in Nantucket, Crested Butte, and Denver as well as Artists in Residence in Yellowstone National Park. The art of Vintage Sculpture and the furniture of Around the Bend are like different brothers from the same mother. And they go hand in glove. From use of found objects to the bold color palettes, these two families of artists draw from the same creative well. Case in point: When the family of The Pie King of Round Top, Bud Royer, requested a throne for this 60th birthday, the Rupperts and Pratts collaborated. Rick built the chair in Ohio while the Rupperts crafted the crown for the back in Iowa. When they met up in Round Top, the finishing touches were added by covering the seat with wording, and studding it with bottle caps and dots. continued on page 110

KINDRED SPIRITS IN ROUND TOP, from page 109

The call of the road and their creative, gypsy hearts keep both couples living the life they love. Rick and Denise make their traditional and contemporary willow furniture from their renovated hog barn on a 9-acre farm north of Wooster, Ohio. Handmade, artisan furnishings are what Rick calls “rare-ofa-kind.” Rick’s craftsmanship, coupled with Denise’s flair for color and design, make the couple’s furniture tomorrow’s heirlooms.

Brad and Sundie craft whimsical sculptures, art pieces, and furniture from their studio amid the rolling hills near Norwalk, Iowa. They incorporate cast-off parts and vintage treasures to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Their newest work features iconic figures such as classic cowboys and Indians, Frida Kahlo, and Johnny and June Cash made from recast junk, much of which is acquired in the fields of Warrenton and the shows at Round Top. The winter has been cold and long in Iowa and Ohio so both couples will be creating some amazing new pieces to bring to Texas. Stop by their booths to meet the artists in person, have a cold one or maybe even a spirited game of LCR. There’s always something fun going on when these gypsy friends get together! The Round Top Triangle opens Wednesday, March 26th and the Marburger Farm Antique Show (Tent G), opens Tuesday April 1, both through Saturday, April 5.

Husband and wife team head Chelsea’s Meadow field by Derek Phillips

A

t the shows, some field owners are rarely or never seen during the event, while others, like Larry Clack, are there the entire time making sure everything is running as smoothly as possible for vendors. During the past six years, Larry, owner of Chelsea’s Meadow, a five-acre spread which is just about a mile north of Round Top Square, has been seen moving his vendors merchandise underneath tents during the occasional downpours and even roaming his field making sure tents are tied down fast when the winds have come up.

When not busy running Chelsea’s Meadow, owner Larry Clack enjoys spending time with his grand daughter, Avery. (Photo: Derek Phillips.)

When things are more normal, he is still drifting through his area making sure his vendors have what they need or he may be found in a tent selling a few of his own items. And more recently, he has been enjoying some family time holding the latest edition to the clan, Avery, his baby granddaughter. It’s not surprising that Larry, a retired big rig driver, takes this approach as he began in the business as a dealer himself. continued on page 115

It is that experience that motivates him to be there to assist any way he can. “With me being a dealer before, I want everyone to do well,” Larry said. “It does affect me when things aren’t going so well and there aren’t many shoppers out. It really bothers me.” Larry sort of fell into the dealing business about 20 years ago when while driving near his home in Houston he saw an auction sign posted along the highway. He decided to pull off the road to check it out. He bought a few items and took them home. He continued this and it wasn’t long before he realized he had more stuff than he could handle and then realized he could re-sell things he didn’t want to keep. It wasn’t long before that he joined a co-op, then opened his own shop, and finally wound up with a booth at Tree Park Field in Warrenton. It didn’t stop there, and soon he was managing the Blue Hills show venue in Round Top. After that stint, he set back up in Warrenton. Then one day made he made the decision that has led him to where he is today. “It was something I had thought about for years and years,” Larry said. “I called an agent and he showed me the property

in November of 2007. I thought it was the prettiest property around and Peggy (Larry’s wife) and I decided to go for it. I guess it was meant to be.” The Meadow, named after the now departed family dog, a dachshund named Chelsea, has grown from about 10 dealers all the way to 35-plus and features such items as antique furniture, custom-built industrial tables, decorative art and collectibles. Plenty of Texas BBQ is also smoked daily. The operational decisions of the field are a family affair, and Larry and Peggy choose to be true to their dealers, who have requested that he not build permanent structures. That decision will keep Chelsea’s Meadow’s with the cozy feel that only Round Top has. “I am not real sure what I will do in the future,” Larry said, noting that he wouldn’t be in this position without the staunch support of wife, Peggy, and daughter Jennifer. “I just treat my dealers like family, and I live day-to-day.” For more information about Chelsea’s Meadow, visit chelseasmeadow.com or contact Larry at 713-385-8778. ❏

At Pandora de Balthazar’s European Luxury Bedding Tent in Round Top, owner Pandora is determined to take the past and bring it back to life. One of her many specialties is re-creating, re-purposing and enhancing original textiles in new and exciting ways. Creative thinking and planning goes into helping her customers see different options for using linens and textiles in unique ways. Pandora says an antique textile is more than just using a

She offers a way to bring those pieces back to life through everyday use. Pandora has been collecting the most unique textiles from throughout the world for decades, with a focus mainly on European textiles. She and her staff are able to think out of the box when taking on any re-purposing project. “We bring the past to life, reinventing treasured works of art into every day luxuries for our clients,” she says. “Our Vintage textiles are being art is being able to thoughtfully repurposed into pillows, recycling these treasured pieces bedcovers, window dressings, for today’s busy and active tablecloths and more. lifestyles.” In addition to repurposing, Pandora sources antique hand loomed linen and processes it for both in-house projects and for designers.

Titanic violin sells for over $1.6 million

A

violin believed to have been played on the Titanic before the doomed vessel sank was auctioned for more than $1.6 million Saturday, a fantastic figure which one collector said may never be beaten. The sea-corroded instrument, now unplayable, is thought to have belonged to bandmaster Wallace Hartley, who was among the disaster’s more than 1,500 victims. The story of Hartley’s band, which stoically continued playing on the ship’s deck until the disaster’s final hour, is a memorable part of James Cameron’s “Titanic,” when Hartley and his colleagues are seen playing “Nearer, My God, To Thee” as the passengers around them scream and drown in the icy water. The incredible story, and its heart rending portrayal in one of the world’s most popular films, likely played a role in pushing the instrument’s price to 900,000 pounds, or past 1 million pounds $1.6 million dollars) when the buyer’s premium and tax are taken into account. “It’s a world record for a Titanic artifact,” said Peter BoydSmith, a Titanic memorabilia collector at the auction, hosted by Henry Aldridge and Son in the western England town of Devizes. ❏

This band signed the piece vertically, with Ringo Starr signing on top, George Harrison signing below him, with Paul McCartney (signed as “Uncle Paul McCartney”) and John Lennon on the bottom. The large autographs are accompanied by drawings by each member of the band and “The Beatles were here” written above John Lennon’s signature. “Holy Grail is a term bandied about in memorabilia circles far too much,” said Shrum, “but in this case, it’s hard to argue with the designation.

American artist, American businessman

H

by Lou Christine

ave you ever heard of artist Dale Chihuly? Well I never did until I visited the Emerald City of Seattle this past autumn. That’s when I visited Seattle’s iconic landmark, The Space Needle. On the same grounds and within the Needle’s shadow is the Chihuly exhibit. Some history: Tacoma, Washington’s renowned Dale Chihuly, 72, has immersed himself in glass art throughout his adult life. The student of interior design at first became a proficient glassblower. The power of the torch and pipe, teamed with Chihuly’s young and persistent lungs, created astonishing pieces of visual art. The process: The recent blown glass while still seething is manipulated into intricate shapes, in lavish colors to the tune of the maestro’s imagination.

Chihuly’s early training stemmed from The University of Washington and University of Wisconsin while then further honing his craft at The Rhode Island School of Design. Later, in the late ‘60s, as a Fulbright Fellow, the up-and-comer glass man employed the tried-and-true This glass sculpture looks like woven American techniques of the great Murano in Indian textiles. (Photo: Venice, Italy. He merged Murano’s Lou Christine.) methods with his own concepts, enabling him to take a quantum leap, surpassing anything ever witnessed beforehand while constructing large-scale, technically difficult, crystal–based environmental art pieces. Returning to his roots, in 1971 Chihuly co-founded the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington. His designs

evolved on a grander scale, considered by some as more mind-blowing than glassblowing. Chihuly was duplicating items considered by other glass people as impossible to recreate, like the three dimensional loomed and textured look of Navajo blankets where he recreated the elaborate woven patterns making up Indian tribe baskets of the Pacific Northwest. Yet Chihuly’s burgeoning career was suddenly almost smashed to pieces in 1976, in England, involved in a horrific, head-on crash sending the glass man through the windshield. He lost an eye and suffered serious scars. In 1979 he dislocated his shoulder, handicapping him from using the glass blowing pipe. Perhaps what seemed like game-ending setbacks were blessings in disguise and despite those debilitating events Chihuly has evolved into a designer of the umpteenth degree. The artist’s organizational skills came into play. If the life-altering events limited the man to no longer to be physically able to blow glass he’d hire protégés; he’d direct, with his mind doing the blowing and others would handle the heavy lifting. Chiluly explained, “Once I stepped back I liked the view.” Stunning and shimmering examples of his works are now worldwide. Glass gardens of every flower, flotillas of glass, along with arrays of glass chandeliers and too many to mention shapely and infinitely colorful works are standouts in museums, theaters, hotels and places of learning, all displayed in just about every state and in scores of nations. Besides Seattle, another large and permanent exhibit can be found at the Oklahoma City of Art. Chihuly oriented merchandise retail stores chock with remnants of his designs in places like the Bellagio in Las Vegas and MGM Grand Casino in Macau. The shops sell a plethora of Chihuly keepsakes in the form of everything from T-shirts to items

www.showdaily.us

like tabletop books with vivid photos and examples of his works that are situated around the world. He and his proficient team have put on some miles and orchestrated extraordinary temporary exhibits in places like Jerusalem and even atop the waters of Venice’s canals. Here in Texas, Chihuly art can be viewed at the Dallas Museum of Art, UT Southwestern Medical Sarah and Charles Seay Biomedical Building, Dallas, San Antonio’s Art Museum and The San Antonio Public Library. So I say if you are some place, anywhere, and you hear there is a Chihuly exhibit or piece on display, don’t miss it ‘cause you’ll learn something about the man and his glass. ❏

Flatonia museum is full of surprises

tep into the E. A. Arnim Archives and Museum in Flatonia, Texas, and you might just see things that you have never experienced elsewhere. The museum was established by 1988 by E.A.’s widow, Ann, to house the Arnims’ original collection along with a wealth of additional donations from numerous other families with deep roots in Flatonia’s history. The museum’s exhibits illustrate the settlement, early history and continuing development of Flatonia and the surrounding communities. Within the collection are many unique items that carry the mind into the past lives of the city. “The goal of the museum is to preserve the area’s historical and cultural artifacts,” said Judy Pate, president of the museum’s board of directors. “We try to keep everything local from places like businesses, schools, churches and farms. It is both educational and entertaining for the general public from the area or for those who are just passing through.” Particularly eye-catching are several large fretwork pieces, including a birdcage and two spectacularly elaborate continued on page 139

“cathedral” clocks. A former Flatonia State Bank president painstakingly fashioned them out of old wooden packing crates using an exceedingly tiny blade on a treadle operated scroll saw. The technique originated in Germany. “They are incredible examples of intricate woodworking,” Judy said. “You really won’t see things like this anywhere else. People who see them are astonished.” Another prized item in the museum collection is a fine settee with a frame consisting of intricately intertwined cow horns. This was the product of a small manufacturer of novelty horn furnishings established in Flatonia in the 1890 to satisfy a decorating craze that was sweeping the country. Nine pieces were sold to a customer in San Antonio for the extraordinary amount of $500 at the time. The piece displayed in Flatonia’s museum won first premium in a competition at the Dallas Fair in October of 1891. Occupying most of the second floor is a 2,600 square-foot Veterans Memorial.

Photographs of more than 300 Flatonia area veterans line a long hallway as a “Wall of Honor”, while memorabilia brought back from foreign wars and uniforms worn by local servicemen and women fill smaller exhibit rooms. Anyone with an interest in military history is invited to visit its library for research and to see actual war footage from its extensive DVD collection to fully understand the sacrifices made during past wars. “The memorial was the brainchild of a retired colonel and the American Legion,” Judy said. “It honors all those who have served and provides a place where items won’t be lost.” The museum is located in the old Flatonia State Bank Building at 101 East North Main (on the corner of Highways 90 and 95 North).

Columbus’ Junk in the Park is fun for the whole family compiled by Show Daily staff

n 2010, the Columbus Chamber of Commerce created a community-wide garage sale held in historical Beason’s Park off Old Highway 90. It was designed as a combination garage sale, antiques show and flea market. Vendors crowded the area along the Colorado River for a space at one of the most scenic show venues in the central Texas area, allowing attendees plenty of attractive space to do business. Vendors sold from the back of trucks, off low-boy trailers and from tables set up in the grass. If the shows in and around Round Top and Warrenton weren’t enough for you, Columbus’ 5th Annual Junk in the Park, which has been growing every year since its inception, will be held on April 12th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This one-day event will give vendors and shoppers the opportunity to take advantage of the warm spring weather to buy and sell items like antiques, tools, plants, hand-made goodies and food, including fresh tamales. The variety of items available for purchase is what makes Junk in the Park an exciting and interesting event. “It’s a beautiful park with lots and lots of oak trees,” said Jane Pullicino, executive director of the Columbus Chamber of Commerce. “There is everything from antiques to retail items like soaps and candles and even plants and there is also plenty of parking that will accommodate everyone.” Jane said some vendors travel miles away to bring goods

that have been collecting dust in barns, attics and garages. Antiques are the highlight though, making the trip for shoppers from out of town well worth the drive. “Last year, there was a vendor who had plenty of Victorian furniture,” Jane said. “It’s really a combination antique show and flea market. Junk in the Park is just plain outdoor fun. If you have kids, they can run around the park or buy a hot dog from the Boy Scouts.” If “junk” doesn’t suit your fancy, downtown merchants are also open with special deals of their own.

“Many of our businesses, especially in the town square, will have sidewalk sales and will stay open later. Also, there are plenty of restaurants in town from sit-down to fast food,” Jane said. “It’s a real family event. There is stuff for the husbands… there is really something for everyone.” Vendor spots are on a first-come, first-served basis and cost $35. Last year there were about 50 vendors and hundreds of shoppers. Even more are expected at this year’s event.

he long-running, prestigious HADA Antiques Show has a new face. After 50 editions, HADA has been acquired by the well respected organizers of Dolphin Productions, who have 25 years of experience in running quality antiques shows across the nation. Rosemary Krieger, the company’s president, says, “HADA has done such an amazing job producing the Houston show over these many years, and deserves the huge recognition for the show’s long history and nationally-renowned reputation - a job very well done!” Dolphin Productions, whose main offices are based in Chicago and Fort Lauderdale, have been organizing and producing shows for a quarter of a century in Miami, Naples, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Palm Beach, Palm Springs, San Francisco and Sarasota. Krieger’s plan is to re brand the show with the new name, and by inviting more decorative and fine arts dealers. “We also plan to introduce 20th century modernism dealers to supplement the great antiques already represented and to help attract younger collectors by broadening the scope of material presented.” Other exciting plans include increasing the size of the show to up to as many as 125 dealers and making the event a “room-setting show” by offering booths with papered walls rather than drapery. Upcoming shows, which will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, are scheduled for September 19-21, 2014 and March 27-29, 2015.

f you and your family and friends are the type of people who like to tour around Texas to different places and events, then a visit to Bastrop for its annual YesterFest festival should be marked on your calendar. This year the festival will be held April 25 - 27, 2014. YesterFest is a celebration of Bastrop’s pioneer heritage and of the cultures that shaped the town. Attendees are encouraged to dress in costume from the late 1800s while enjoying the historic downtown sights and sounds. “This is a great opportunity to share in the cultural history of all the groups that have been a part of the history,” said

Deborah Johnson, president of the Downtown Business Alliance, the organization that manages the event. “It will be fun for the whole family from Friday through Sunday. It can be a day trip or better yet you can stay the weekend at any of our RV parks, B&Bs, hotels or even the state park.” YesterFest, which began strictly as a historical event about 20 years ago, has changed, but it still maintains its look into the past. Pioneer demonstrations are a crowd favorite as actual artisans perform such skills as quilting, blacksmithing and spinning. There are also a few good Old West shootouts. “The people who do these demonstrations actually do them right in front of you,” Deborah said. “We also have actors re-enacting gun fights. We have legends and rumors of some shoot-outs occuring here in Bastrop, but these are just for fun.” There will be plenty of other groups there for visitors to continued on page 143

Antique Alley Texas celebrates Easter with antiques by Show Daily staff

Many festival-goers enjoy dressing up in period costumes - from mountainmen and pioneer garb to flapper dresses and ethnic outfits - while attending Bastrop’s annual YesterFest celebrations.

This year’s three-day event runs from April 25 through the 27th.

Antique Alley Texas, also known as the 37-miles-ofantiques-and-more sale) will be celebrating Easter in style this spring. The show, which runs April 18 - 20, (Easter), is similar to the Round Top and Warrenton events in that is spreads out across several towns and through the surrounding countryside. “The collective agreement between all conferred with (local church leaders, local business owners, the Mennonite community and private show organizers between Grandview, Maypearl and Cleburne),” said Nita Redmon, in reference to the event falling on Easter Sunday, “all agree for various reasons to keep the regular show date. However, each and every show promoter is free to have their show when they feel is the best time for them, their guests and their vendors. That’s what makes Antique Alley Texas special - the success of the show is due to many different business owners and entrepreneurs working together.” Cleburne have set the pace for a great fleamarket-style festival with folks up and down the trail hosting sales. There are professional dealers offering all kinds of merchandise alongside crafters, artists, antiquers and junkers. For more information, visit antiquealleytexas.com ❏

The El Camino Real Music Festival will take place throughout the weekend, with a live music featuring area Tejano, blues, folk, country and rock musicians. “We have a lot of activities and we are trying to make it an event for all ages,” Deborah said, noting that there is the Kid’s Corral where youngsters can visit up close with a fireman or a police officer. If you want to do some shopping, besides the great shops in downtown, Deborah said they will be adding a two-day juried antiques, arts and craft show to YesterFest. She said the show will feature high quality antiques and collectibles, plus hand-made arts and crafts. Sellers are welcome, there are some booth spaces still available. There will also be an old-time Penny Arcade offering games of skill for all ages. Of course there will be a lot of great food as Bastrop’s signature restaurants will be serving up their delicious dishes in what is being called “Taking it to the Streets” food court and Farmers’ Market. It would be a good idea to have a bite, too, before you tackle the Bastrop Pub Crawl on Friday night, April 25. Remember, don’t drink and drive.

The darling country setting is the perfect showcase for our many-faceted show,” she comments. “Our dealers have been searching far and wide for those unusual special finds, collectibles, handmade originals and antiques of all kinds. This year, our artisans will be demonstrating and offering handmade wooden spoons, demonstrating old time weaving/spinning, chair canning and basket repairing, locally made chopping blocks and more.” Hodges encourages guest to come sit a spell outside under the towering oak trees and watch the craftsmen and women produce their old-time style wares.

The show also features a great selection of farmhouse treasures, crocks, baskets, antique furniture, primitives, lots of folk art and paintings, holiday items, homemade soaps and more. Visitors can also pick up a copy of the cookbook, “Country Favorites from Hodges,” and get it signed by the author, Dawn Hodges. The show’s historic hall is air conditioned and wheelchair accessible.

The buck stops here: Meet Suzy Kirchberg

I

Lou Christine goes undercover to get the inside scoop....

“Suzanne! Where are you!” MAIN OFFICE: 512-535-3705

(John Stinger.)

n order to pull off such a coup we had to go stealth. It’s been a conspiracy that has included myself and Show Daily’s co-founder, Roberto Alvarado. We’ve even implicated the magazine’s printer. Some heads could roll. Yet I’m willing to go out on a limb to shine some deserving light on Show Daily’s true leader and editor, Suzy Kirchberg. Suzy is my boss. This editorial is meant to be more than me blowing smoke her way. I figure our readership wants to know a thing or two about her. I can tell you. Suzy is 40-ish, slender and blond. Suzy is focused, congenial, a busy bee and the very glue who keeps it all together behind the scenes. Born and reared in rural Vermont, young and enterprising Suzy had a keen eye for antiques. She had no qualms about becoming a youthful dumpster-diving diva. One of those early diving expeditions scored some recently thrown-away books. The discarded hardbacks were cashed in. The booty financed a trip to Europe. Further shaping herself into womanhood, she matched those experiences with a New Englander’s sense of practicality. Suzy became a discerning proponent of fairness and knowledge as pathways to success. Suzy continued to follow the lure of wanderlust. On some Florida key, the Vermonter met the Guadalajaran. There was an immediate attraction. They hooked up. Despite disparate roots, the two discovered common interests, mostly entrepreneurial in nature that included antiques and publishing. Roberto Alvarado, Suzy’s guy and Show Daily’s cofounder and co-publisher, was born in Mexico and grew up in in Detroit. At first, the couple operated a restaurant in Key

West, Florida. After a time they worked their way to Mexico. Rotating between Guadalajara, Mexico and Fayette County, Texas, Roberto and Suzy began showing at Suzy Kirchberg is Show Warrenton in 1992. At the same Daily’s benevolent time, Roberto and Suzy were multifaceted-manager, publishing El antiQuario, a our leader, Roberto’s critically acclaimed bilingual, Mexican folk art, antiques wife, my boss, our friend and a helping hand and and fine art magazine. The magazine was distributed on smiling face to all. (Photo: Roberto Alvarado.) both sides of the Rio Grande. As the Warrenton end of the shows became more spread out, Roberto and Suzy realized the area needed a map of some sort. Show Daily was born. In 2000, Show Daily was a black and white 12-page tabloid. Yet from the get-go, Suzy designed the map, the initial linchpin giving Show Daily credibility. With each edition, she added vital and precise information sprinkled with tasty articles germane to the trade. As the magazine expanded, pressures mounted to remain fresh and innovative. Suzy’s been instrumental posting a webpage and a Facebook page while orchestrating the online edition. During its modest beginnings, Show Daily was pieced together the old-fashioned way and printed down in Mexico. After 9/11, trucking it over a thousand miles and getting the time-sensitive publication across the border became a challenge. Today, Show Daily is printed in San Antonio. This season we’ll hand out more than 30,000 magazines. It will be our biggest edition so far, over 150 pages, in color and as glossy and classy as Vogue. After a very short break, Suzy will begin constructing Show Daily’s upcoming Fall edition. I’ve wanted to write a piece about the real boss for some time. She’s a very modest person. Many advertisers and others only know her as the pleasant and helpful voice on the other end of the phone. For 14 years, loyal advertisers have expressed how they would like to meet her, but even during show time, she spends most of her time back in the office, up the road apiece in Rutersville. She faithfully monitors Show Daily’s Facebook page, eagerly getting out messages and deals to shoppers in the fields. Suzy Kirchberg is Show Daily’s benevolent multifactedmanager, our leader, Roberto’s wife, my boss, our friend and a helping hand and smiling face to all. She is simply the best magazine editor, in my view, on either side of the Mississippi. ❏ SHOW DAILY FIELD OFFICE PHONE: 979-249-4149
