Washington DC show CANCELLED!

From Bob Schell:

Hello Fellow Dealers, Collectors and Friends,

I am sorry to announce that I have found it prudent to cancel our show in January. This has been a difficult decision and very disappointing as well.  First and foremost, I have a concern for everyone to stay safe and healthy. The most recent surge in Covid has many people concerned and hesitant to travel or to be around others. Additionally, it would be disappointing for the people willing to travel to arrive at a show not having the quantity or quality of items they have come to expect.

Conversely, I don’t want participating dealers to be disappointed because attendance (sales) would be down due to Covid. I know this will be difficult for those attendees already committed to comprehensive travel plans.

I do plan to promote another show when things look more promising –for sure in January of 2023 if we can get out of this Covid mess. More information will follow for those of you with hotel and table reservations.

Thank you and stay well
