News-Antique.com - Dec 11,2009 - (West Palm Beach, FL) – The West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, Florida’s largest monthly antiques show, will present the Florida Modernism Show in conjunction with the Festival’s regularly scheduled antiques show January 1,2,3. Fifty of America’s finest dealers specializing in 20th century design will join the Festival’s normal complement of over 400 dealers to create a unique opportunity for visitors.
Everything from Art Deco, Mid-century modern, Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts to European furniture and accessories including jewelry, art and glass as well as antiques and collectibles will be presented at this one of a kind sale. The Festival’s owners, Kay and Bill Puchstein, expect this new combination event will attract a younger group of dealers, decorators and buyers who are looking for the “not so traditional” array of antiques and collectibles. There promises to be something for everyone in a safe and comfortable climate controlled environment with professional management and assistance.
One “don’t miss” stop in the Festival will be the booths of Adrienne and Marco Astrologo. Between these two experts they have just what you need to transport your personal valuables in first class style. Adrienne is the author of the recently published book “High Fashion Handbags – Classic Vintage Designs” which will be available in her booth and she also will have in her booth a large selection of luxurious vintage and designer handbags from the 1960s to current styles carrying such famous labels as Judith Leiber, Hermes, Gucci, Versace, Gianfranco Ferre, Fendi, Chanel, Barry Kieselstein, Renato de Mattio and many more. Fashion is the key to Adrienne’s world and she will happily share it. She says the Festival is a fun show, one that is not too expensive and one where you can actually afford to buy something. Marco is one of the leading Louis Vuitton dealers in the world. His booth always displays a very large collection of vintage Louis Vuitton luggage and streamer trunks from around the world, each with its own story and history. Many have original unique monograms.
