News-Antique.com - Jan 13,2010 - (Philadelphia) Noonmark Antiques, a rising star in the world of high-end Americana, will join one of the top antiques shows in the U.S. The Semi-Annual Original York Antiques Show runs this month from January 29-31. Moorestown, NJ-based Noonmark, specializing in American painted furniture and folk art, will be at home at the show which targets buyers in this category.
After just four years in business, Noonmark Antiques is getting the attention of top dealers and show promoters with their fresh approach to American antiques. The founders, Lisa and Charlie Hammell, are bringing their years of study and experience to bear in this new business. With ample experiences in retail, technology innovation and the arts, Charlie is applying all of these to Noonmark Antiques' branding strategy, customer relations, web site and aesthetics. Lisa, with an ancestry that reaches back to the founders of Germantown (Philadelphia) and William Penn, is applying her passion for history and research to Noonmark. They strive to bring the highest quality and rarity of American folk art to clients. Their client focus is a bit unique, too. In addition to working with collectors, decorators and other dealers, Noonmark is taking a special interest in younger lifestyle consumers who may be new to antiques but want something different for their homes.
Says Charlie Hammell: "We are thrilled that Melvin Arion has invited us to York. With our strength in Pennsylvania painted furniture and folk art, we will be a great fit. We look forward to meeting new clients there."
Regarding her passion for this business, Lisa says “Since I was six years old and visited Pottsgrove Manor, I was entranced by history. I can’t get enough of it. I have always studied, researched and memorized. I love the people and the culture: redware, stoneware, naïve paintings, painted furniture, quilts—it’s all wonderful. My ancestors made some of this stuff.”
The show runs from Friday, January29 through Sunday, January 31. For more information, go to www.NoonmarkAntiques.com or call 609-410-0267. There you can find a link to the Show as well as learn more about what Noonmark has to offer.
