This Sunday we made it to Houston for the latest edition of the Houston Antiques Dealer’s Association (HADA) Show. The show does a very good job of creating an upscale environment without the use of papered walls. Most items are of the traditional antique variety, with the addition of vintage handbags, jewelry. Few other items are outside the traditional definition of antique, something 1oo years old or more. Furniture seems to be slowly making a comeback, and the amount displayed here and at other shows seems to be on the rise. Local dealers displaying at the show are required to be members of the association. The next HADA show will be in March, 2013.
