More than 600 dealers jammed their way into the Passenger Ship Terminal piers this past weekend, November 12 and 13, for another version of the ever-popular Triple Pier Antiques Show. The event, presented by Stella Shows Mgmt Co., opened with a twist for this most recent event with an early buyer’s preview taking place on Friday evening.
A staggering assortment of material was on hand for the hoards of shoppers that charged onto the piers starting at 4 on Friday. Good sales were noted in many of the booths as patrons made their way through the show with steady crowds and good sales reported throughout the weekend.
There were Wooton desks displayed by Richard and Eileen Dubrow, Tiffany and leaded glass lamps by a variety of makers in a host of booths including SPQR Lamps, Jack Papadinis and Lawrence Zinzi, and bronze and European furniture and furnishings offered by many.
Zany folk art rdf_Descriptions and eclectic wares were seen in the booth of Ohio dealer Chuck Auerbach, including his glove mold made specifically for people missing one of their digits, HG Limited offered up an eye-pleasing collection of chrome can openers from the 40s and 50s, and a selection of humorous signs appeared in the booth of Golden Goat.
Triple Pier was a solid event this past weekend with full range of merchandise offered from antiquities to contemporary art. The vast majority of the dealers scheduled to set up on the pier this coming weekend, November 19-21, will not be repeat dealers from the previous weekend. Those that do both shows will have a whole new assortment of exciting merchandise.
Triple Pier will open on Friday afternoon, November 19, 4 to 7 with a $35 preview. Regular show hours, $15 admission, are Saturday with the staggered openings for each pier at 9,10 and 11 am, to 6 pm. Sunday hours are 11 am to 6 pm. For further information contact Stella Shows at 212-255-0020.
The e-preview feature of the show has photographs of all of the dealers’ booths from this past weekend. New photos of the booths will appear after the preview closes this Friday evening at www.stellashows.com.
