Ooh, shiny! (Not a post about old jewelry. Really.)

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

Yesterday, Berlin Iron, today, the Berlin Wall. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t only look at jewelry when I visit the Baltimore Summer Antiques Show. Anything that catches my eye is fair game, & a whole booth full of large, shiny, official-looking optical instruments is bound to do just that. Last year, while strolling the […]

Iron deficiency? Click here!

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | No Comments

I’m feeling run-down. Do I need more iron in my diet, or my jewelry box? I think the latter, at least if the iron in question looks like the bracelets above! Yes, they are actually made of wrought iron – the same stuff as fences, garden furniture, & bridges. These pieces aren’t heavy, however; they’re […]

Pharmacist? Antiques fan? Check this out!

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 2 Comments

  My dad is retired now, but he was a pharmacist for over 50 years, so of course I thought of him when I spotted the giant mortar & pestle pictured above at last year’s Baltimore Summer Antiques Show. This rather large piece is made of metal & once sat outside Pinehurst Pharmacy in Baltimore […]

It’s that time of year again!

By Dyana Neal | Posted in Host Blogs | 2 Comments

Macbeth closed yesterday & I’m feeling a bit of that post-show “crash” that comes every time a production ends. The performances went very well, we had such appreciative audiences, & the cast & crew really bonded. This was one of those experiences that reminds one why doing theater is worth all that rehearsal time, memorization, […]
