CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, October, 19, 2009—Professional Antique Show Promoters Melrose & Duddy announced plans recently for a new show in Charlottesville, Virginia. Antiques in Charlottesville will be held January 22-24, 2010 to at the University Center Holiday Inn in historic Charlottesville.
“We are confident our brand of show is a great fit for the Charlottesville market,” says partner Jay Melrose. “We’ve already experience a lot of warm support and encouragement from the community and commitments from antique and art dealers from throughout the Eastern Seaboard.”
Antiques in Charlottesville will join the All Saints' Antiques Show and Antiques and Gardening at Bryn Du (Columbus, Ohio) in the Melrose & Duddy repertoire. All dealers at Melrose & Duddy shows display fine art and antiques in walled room-like settings.
Melrose says Antiques in Charlottesville will feature the popular Designer’s Choice merchandise award program, ten-minute lectures and other attractions still being finalized.
Jay Melrose, of Poland, Ohio, began selling antiques at shows in the mid 1980’s and, armed with that experience, has worked to rethink the formula of antiques show promotion. Today Melrose & Duddy shows feature an exciting array of knowledgeable dealers who are engaging generations of new buyers.
