April 2012 News from NHADA

Pardon the self–promotion, but I report NHADA member news of antiques interest. Parker-French Antique Shows will begin on Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 9:00 am! Located right next door to Parker-French Antique Center on Route 4 in Northwood (on NH’s Famous Antique Alley), 40+ dealers will be setting up inside and out every Sunday from then on, with more shows planned for every other Wednesday. Admission to the show is free. I will play show manager to a great group of dealers selling only antiques and quality collectibles — (no fleas here). While coming to the show, make a day of Antique Alley and visit NHADA member shops: RS Butler’s Trading Company, Coveway Antiques, Fern Eldridge and Friends, Willow Hollow Antiques, Evans and Wright at the Eagle, Parker–French Antique Center, The Betty House, Austin’s Antiques, and Keepers Antiques, all within just a few miles of each other. Visit www.nhantiquealley.com for more information.)
