Back Home From the Texas Shows - Soon in Maine!

Home again from three weeks of shopping, shopping, shopping plus exhibiting at The Original Round Top Antiques Fair during Antiques Week in Texas, and my eight cats are just now forgiving me for leaving them for so long. Most of them I've bribed with extra kitty treats, but one is still mad and ignoring me; hopefully she'll get over it soon.

Came back with plenty of fun new antiques treasures from Texas, which will soon be added to my inventory for the shows I'll be doing up in New England, as well as the group shops I am in along the Maine coast. By the end of this month, I'll be on my way to Maine for the summer, where I run my custom antiques tour business for folks looking to maximize their search time for antiques while cutting down on gas, time and effort. I customize each tour to my clients' desires, trying to fine-tune the hunt to their favorite antiques and their pocketbooks.

I personally escort buyers to Maine shops which carry the type of antiques my customers are looking for - whether it's furniture or thimbles, I can supply a full day of shopping, find a great place for lunch, and assist in finding overnight accommodations in mid-Coast Maine, all at a very reasonable cost.
If needed, I'll even assist in finding a reliable shipper to get their purchases home.

Like lobster? We can eat fresh lobster that was caught that morning, enjoying a fabulous lunch at a local restaurant in one of the most scenic coastal locations Maine has to offer.

Want a fabulous place to stay during your visit to Maine? I can locate for you a picturesque Victorian summer hotel that's right next to a Maine lighthouse, or find a classic bed and breakfast inn that will pamper you and give you years of great memories.

Doesn't matter if there's one person or a half-dozen, my price is the same. We'll have loads of fun exploring both small and large antiques shops, many which are off the beaten path and not well-known (perfect for finding special treasures!). This year there are a few brand new ones that aren't even listed anywhere yet, but I've already pencilled them into my shopping list for exploration.

Still have openings for summer 2006 - feel free to contact me for information on my custom and confidential Maine antiques tours at
