I first learned of this show a couple of weeks ago. Dave and I were watching a PBS special on The Civil War (aren't we exciting people?) when this commercial came on:
The Philadelphia Antiques Show? Sign me up, baby. It looks like a great way to spend a Saturday night to me! Booths full of fabulous antiques, as far as the eye can see? If you're in the area, I encourage you to go. You heard the man, you don't need to go with the intention of buying anything (although you might find something terrific!), just come with a learning spirit.

The show starts tomorrow, and runs through Tuesday, April 12th. Tickets start at $17.00 and
all proceeds from the event will go to benefit Penn Medicine and this year's beneficiary, The Penn Ovarian Cancer Research Center. So, it's for a great cause. In addition to the marvelous antiques, they have some fun events planned: Saturday night is "World Collector's Night" at the Urban Outfitters building. Then on Tuesday, there's a Luncheon with Alexa Hampton which sounds like it should be wonderful (I'm a big fan of hers... have you read her book?).

Maybe I'll see you there.
