Art and Furnishings at the Winter Antiques Show, Uptown

This weekend, we went to the Amory on the Upper East Side to the annual winter Antiques Show.

There were loads of booths showing furniture, artwork, tapestries and even autographs. This was our second year seeing the show. It was a treat.

I'm not sure whether it's because I love older American art and furnishings, or whether there were lots of booths showing Americana?

I came away from the show thinking there is tons of American art out there. And that they all use the color red.

If you have a chance to see this show, I'd say, try it out. Many of the items are much too expensive for the regular person. Mark fell in love with a painting with a $900k price tag (!). But it was just fun to walk around and ooh and aah at it all.

Sounds like a fun place to stroll and take in all the sights whether you're buying or not. Some of the price tags can be astounding.

the show looks so warm and inviting - a nice place to spend a winter afternoon.
I just watched the NYT Ed Koch interview, it was so good. Thanks for the link.
