News-Antique.com - Feb 25,2013 - Philadelphia, PA – February 25, 2013 – Join us on the European antiques trail in May for a shopping trip to a part of Europe where most Americans never venture. Sleep in a castle. Enjoy some of the best wines and beers Europe has to offer. Comb choice antique fairs, antique wholesalers, galleries, under-the-radar dealers, farmsteads and old factories. Find the best antiques and furniture, vintage wonders, art and design, collectibles and other treasures at great prices.
The spring antiques shopping tour runs from May 4-12, 2013. The expedition is offered by Philadelphia-based Treasures of Europe Tours and hosted by dealer Tom Conrad, who has been leading affordable antique buying trips to Europe for eight years.
Space is limited and there are only a few spots left. The remaining seats on the antiques shopping tour will be offered on a first-come-first serve basis.
Antique enthusiasts who are interested should call 215.991.9892 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability.
Ground transportation, full itinerary, private guide, hotel and eight meals are all included. The group will stay in a castle, manor house and vineyard hotel. The tour starts and ends in Frankfurt. Dealers are able to buy in quantity and group container shipping is available.
The May antiques tour includes stops in undiscovered areas of Central Bavaria, Franconia, Saxony and Thuringia (the former East Germany).
The “Trempelmarkt,” one of Europe’s top flea markets, is a highlight of the May antiques tour. This fair attracts hundreds and hundreds of sellers. It's Germany's biggest and is held only twice a year.
“We’re spotlighting this part of the continent because it's “Europe’s Attic,” said Conrad. Antiques there are plentiful and affordable. It's a great alternative to France, the U.K., Belgium and Italy, where many Americans shop and prices are higher. “We’ll come across everything on the spring antiques tour -- low-cost, mid-range and up-market antiques,” he added.
Participants will see affordable antiques, art, vintage items, 18th-20th century antiques, industrial antiques, mid-century modern, collectibles and design, according to Treasures of Europe Tours, which is the only company in the U.S. offering antique buying trips to this part of the continent. Conrad is also offering a fall antiques tour, September 25-October 4, 2013.
