Alexandria, VA – “Our unexpected relocation in Philadelphia has set us on quite an exciting journey,” says promoter Barry M. Cohen (b4rTIME, Inc.). “We certainly would not have chosen to move, but now that we have, it feels like the adventure is just beginning.” Indeed, some exciting destinations are in store for dealers and serious collectors alike.
Antiques Philadelphia (formerly Antiques at Philadelphia’s Navy Pier) has found a charming new home at the Sherman Mills complex in the Philadelphia neighborhood known as East Falls. Just minutes from the 30th Street Station and Museum of Art circle, this turn of the century facility, with its stone walls and tall windows, faces the new home of the Pennsylvania Ballet. The prestigious performing arts organization has just announced it will become the charity beneficiary of Cohen’s third annual antique show, which will be held April 11 -13. “I am absolutely delighted to have such a wonderful group to work with,” says Cohen. “The Pennsylvania Ballet has recently moved to Sherman Mills to participate in the vital life of this ‘cool’ neighborhood, most likely encouraged by all the easy parking nearby.”
In addition to finding a new home within the city of Philadelphia with easy highway access from I-95 and I-76, and proximity to Center City and the Main Line, Antiques Philadelphia boasts an increase in free parking spaces, plus a weekend shuttle to the Naval Yard. “Now that we are honored with such an eminent charity affiliation, we are set to make quite an impression during Antique Week in Philadelphia,” boasts Cohen. “Those who expected us to go quietly are in for a real surprise.”
Dealers will include favorites such as Newsom Berdan, John Sideli, Hanes and Ruskin, Sylvia Antiques, The Hanebergs, Norwoods Spirit of America, The Herrs, Victor Weinblatt, Chuck White, Vander Laan and Schill, Douglas Constant, Lisa McAllister, Laura Fisher, William and Theresa Kurau, Jane Langol, and others. But the journey of discovery does not stop there…
