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.

When visiting Snider Plaza Antique Shops there’s no way I’ll pass up the opportunity to check out Gary Bonner’s Portobello Antiques.  Gary travels to Europe one or two times a year and comes back with incredible finds.  This time, it’s an entire butcher’s table and pot rack covered in copper ... tea kettles, stock pots, and sauce pans (large and small).  There are garden cherubs lined up in the front window.  You’ll discover wonderful antiques shopping Gary’s booths.  But don’t wait too long.  Gary will be heading to Round Top at the end of March where many of the treasures will go never to return.

If you love antiques and good deals, you’ll find both at The Shops.  Donald King Cowan has reduced his quilts and coverlets 25%.  Dr. John Lee Smith has marked down his rare antiques 25%.  Ask where you can find his special showcase.  All Daria Rugs in the store are 70% off (hand made rugs ranging from traditional to contemporary in a wide range of sizes).   Early American Pattern Glass, Japanese Imari, Majolica, Porcelains, Staffordshire, Victorian Majolica from ANTIQUES FROM TRILOGY are on sale ... 25% off.  You’ll find a case of Native American collectibles by Bill Kendell offering 40% off.  If you’re love porcelain figures, Wanda’s case is where you’ll find something special.  Her discount – 25%!  One of the more incredible discounts is an original oil painting by W. R. Thrasher “Ducks in Flight” (35% off).  If you have questions concerning any items on display, the “Go To Man” is store owner,  Alan Woodcook, historian extraordinaire!

Before I finally left Snider Plaza Antique Shops, I had one last thing to do ... pay for my purchases.  I can’t ever seem to leave without checking the book dealers’ inventory and as expected I found two tomes I had to have thanks to Russell Light and Donald King Cowan (who loves Christmas almost as much as I do).

There’s lots more I want to tell you about, but I think I’ll wait until next week to talk about JEWELRY!
