High Street Antiques & Design ... May Celebrations!  Activities at High Street Antiques & Design are on overload this May.  It started with a fast run last weekend – THE KENTUCKY DERBY DAY.  This weekend we’re following up with a  MOTHER’S DAY CELEBRATION Sunday, May 14th.  But it’s time to try something different this year.  Take Mom to the Mall and let her pick out her special gift ... a piece of costume jewelry or maybe a necklace and earring set ... an antique clock ... a fabulous piece of porcelain ... or an oak display case for her many treasures.  Then on Sunday, bring her back for brunch at The Chocolate Angel.  Reservations Required – 972.904.9597.  You won’t find a more delectable spread for Mother’s Day anywhere in The Metroplex.  Mom will love you for it!.

LOST ... again Antiques & Decor ... in the Dallas Design District.  With summer approaching it’s time to give your living space a more airy look by switching out your darker furniture and doing a little uncluttering.  Exchange something wooden with an acrylic or Lucite piece.  The room instantly appears larger and takes on a lighter, fresher look.  Where do you find the best selection for that new summer look?  Head to LOST ... again and let Beth Callahan show you around.  She’ll take you to Linda Feld’s booth and show off Linda’s acrylic chairs upholstered in red and that stunning glass and acrylic table that reminds me of a cool waterfall.  From there Beth will steer you to John Morgan’s pieces ... round modern table with acrylic chairs ... plant stand ... acrylic lighting, and more.  That’s a start for your shopping trip, but there’s so much more to see.

Snider Plaza Antique Shops ... in Dallas, TEXAS.  {new pics as of 3/9)  It’s been sometime since I last visited with Martha and Alan Woodcook at Snider Plaza Antique Shops so you can imagine my surprise at the change in their inventory of antiques and collectibles.  Two new dealers have joined their cadre of fine dealers.  Both have the most wonderful collection of Art Deco pieces.  In one case you’ll find several Art Deco designs by Karl Palda.  Two of my favorites include a Liquor Decanter with 3 glasses (1920 ~ 1930) and a Cut Crystal Vase with a Black Enamel and Sterling Silver neck.  In another case positioned at the front of the store I found a Manning Bowman “Skyscraper” Cocktail Shaker with Bakelite Top.  There are other incredible examples of the Art Deco era you have to see.
