Read the stellar review from Antiques And The Arts Weekly on the 2014 Delaware Antiques Show!
“…a real handsome show, featuring top-flight dealers with interesting and wonderful inventories. The dealers offer thousands of good reasons to attend this show…but patrons might also keep in mind that the State of Delaware has no sales tax, making buying all that more pleasant. Give it a try.” – Antiques And The Arts Weekly
