The Antiques Week show for the Nelson Garrett’s Shows will be at the Altman Athletic Center ballroom that is part of the Johnson-Hagood Stadium complex at the corner of Hagood Ave. and Fishburne St., in Charleston, SC. This is easy to find from Lockwood Drive, near the Police Station. There is plenty of free parking right at the building that actually faces Fishburne St. For easy directions you can do an Internet search for: “The Citadel Map of campus”. The ballroom has huge windows that look out on the football field and stadium.
This is the most important show of the year for the Nelson Garrett’s and their followers. All of their antique dealers bring their best things to this show. Antique shoppers wait all year for this. Everyone is looking for a bargain, and their prices are very reasonable. It is also kind of a “meet and greet” event for all the antiques shoppers and collectors in the Lowcountry. People come from all over the Lowcountry to talk with their favorite dealers and friends.
The show is March 22, 2014 (Saturday), 9 AM to 5 PM and March 23, 2014 (Sunday) 10 AM to 4 PM. Admission is $5.00, good for both days. Donna Garret Kidd manages the shows.
