The Best of TEFAF (according to moi)

It all begins with the arrival to Amsterdam. I needed a few days to get over jet lag before heading off to Maastricht for the European Fine Art and Antique Fair (TEFAF).

Maastricht was booked solid for the show, so we stayed in the quaint  town of Eijsden, about 10 minutes south. Eijsden proved to be a wonderful surprise,  great restaurants ( we ate my favorite meal for the whole trip at Vanille), beautiful buildings, market, and the weather was plus 20!

Packed and Ready to Go!

I have just finished packing my bags. Tomorrow I board a plan to Amsterdam, and then drive down to Maastricht to attend the European Fine Art and Antique Fair ( TEFAF). The show celebrate its 25th Anniversary this year, and represents the very best in the field.

Venneer ... Show some respect.

I often refer to my beautiful drop-front casement piece as command central. This is where I sit and work when I'm not in the store. I love this piece. I looked for over 3 years before I found it. Take a close look. Yes, it is Veneer on solid wood.

Take an even closer look and you will see satinwood inlay. This was an expensive piece of furniture in its day and I paid top dollar for it 10 years ago.
