News-Antique.com - Mar 16,2016 - In the March 16, 2016 edition of Antique Trader, Editor Antoinette Rahn explores the evolution of Irish lacemaking, and the role it has often played in supporting the economy of counties in Ireland. From elegant antique Irish lace wedding gowns displayed at the Sheelin Antique Irish Lace Shop & Museum in Bellanaleck, Ireland and classic vintage lace pieces brought to auction by specialty textiles expert Karen Augusta, of Augusta Auctions, to modern-day Irish crochet lacemaking workshops held at the Kenmare Lace & Design Centre, in Kenmare, Ireland, the history of this craft is being celebrated, cherished, and shared with younger generations.
In addition to this article, the columns in this issue are ripe with food for thought, laugh-out-loud scenarios, and a nostalgic reminder of the heyday of American rock ‘n’ roll music. Wayne Jordan, the Behind the Gavel maestro, encourages everyone to take a closer look at the goal-setting techniques commonly used by many, in an effort to determine if they are effective and in line with personal values. Meanwhile, Melanie Thomas is back with her latest The Buck Stops Here column, which is aptly titled “Ups and downs working with ‘The Man’”. Wrapping up the columns is a special piece about Dan Coulter, owner of Interactive Amusement — a jukebox repair and restoration business located near St. Paul, Minn.
Special features in this edition include a fascinating installment of the Ask the Experts evaluation column, with a reader inquiry about a Jade-ite lamp; an article about the collectability of corkscrews; and an examination of a couple of ‘Things We Love’.
As with all editions of Antique Trader, this issue contains the latest news from the antiques, collectibles, and art industries, previews of upcoming auctions and collector shows, highlights of recent auctions, and the state-by-state events calendar.
