Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show at Convention Center

They’re back in town! It’s the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show and this is their 36th annual show. They’re at the Convention Center, 1 W. Pratt Street. They opened on Friday night, August 26, 2016. They will close on Sunday, the 27th. Sunday’s hours are from11am to 7pm. Admission is $20.

They have a lot of fabulous stuff for sale. The bottom floor of the convention center was filled with the works of over 100 exhibitors from all over the country. For some reason, I think there were more exhibitors from Pennsylvania than any other state this year. But, just about every state in the union was represented.

I talked with exhibitor Richard Kaufman from “Highkarat.” It’s based in New York City. He showed me a piece, a precious stone, that he’s very proud of. It’s a “Victorian Ceylon Sapphire,” circa 1850s. Kaufman said “business has been good at the convention.”

Another exhibitor I chatted with was Scott Causey. He’s into ceramic sculptors. He, too, was please by the response of the public to the event.

While making the rounds, I chatted with two of my fave radio personalities: Dyana Neal and Judith Krummeck from WBJC, 91.5 FM. The popular public radio station, which features classical music, had set up a booth at the event.
