“Why have I specialized in garden antiques? We enjoy our gardens which add tranquility to our lives and I want to share with other the pleasure and excitement of designing and incorporating beautiful design elements in their gardens. Adding a beautiful piece of sculpture or an beautifully designed old bench add so much interest and expand gardens into outdoor rooms.”
“In the twenty years since this show began we have seen a shift in the tastes of our customers who are serious garden collectors and with the general public just looking for an accent piece or two for their garden. The most significant change, in our opinion is the lessening of interest in cast iron that has been cleaned and newly painted. We see a shift in interest especially by collectors in pieces that have pleasing oxidized and as found surfaces. On the other hand, faux bois pieces and real stone pieces have continued to be sought after and have only had interest in them grow.”
