Today I attended a very special press preview of the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show, hosted by the show's director Lisa Podos and celebrated San Francisco designer and Fall Antiques Show Designer Circle steering committee member Jay Jeffers. It was a rare chance to see the exquisite booths before the crowds arrive and get a glimpse of the preparations for tonight's grand gala benefit, which were well under way. Podos and Jeffers introduced us to a few key antiques dealers and galleries to get a feel for the range of the event; the furniture and decorative fine art at this year's show truly span centuries and styles, and there are dealers visiting from all over the world.
Since you all couldn't make it to the preview, I thought I'd bring it here to the web. Come take a peek at some booths that Podos and Jeffers pointed out to us, as well as a few more favorites of mine. The show runs this Thursday through Saturday at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion, and general admission tickets are $18 each, so be sure to see it all in person, as well! And if you haven't read it yet, be sure not to miss my interview with Million Dollar Decorator Jeffrey Alan Marks about his tips for shopping the show!
