Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

Antiques On The Square had a fabulous 2008, and this year we celebrate our 9th year in business and 5th year at this location. We have great plans and expectations for the coming year.

In November, our great city of Madison, Georgia, and Antiques On The Square were featured in The New York Times. The article was titled Antiques Of The Old South. The newspaper scouted out antiquing in Atlanta and surrounding cities and ended up focusing most of its article on our fabulous little Madison. As you can imagine, we were thrilled with the compliment and the attention that followed. The article and attached slideshow can be viewed below in the November News.

In addition to The New York Times article, Madison drew attention for many events this past year. As usual, the yearly home tours were a great success. The Spring Tour of Homes and the Holiday Tour of Homes brought in thousands of visitors and garnered rave reviews. Madison in December with all the old homes and buildings decorated for the holidays is truly a breathtaking sight. The Holiday Candlelight Home Tours are especially beautiful. If you’ve never been to one of the home tours, please mark your calendar for this year. The Spring Tour is the Madison in May Bicentennial Tour of Homes and is scheduled for May 1-3. The Holiday Tour is the Bicentennial Holiday Tour of Homes and is scheduled for December 3-6.

This past year, other events included festivals, plays in the magnificent 114 year old Madison-Morgan Cultural Center auditorium and numerous concerts throughout the year. One event of note was the annual concert by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. This incredible holiday concert has been held in the Cultural Center each year for the last 30 years. The auditorium is small by concert standards – so tickets are hard to get and are pure gold!

Madison is celebrating its Bicentennial in 2009. To kick off the year, they just hosted their City of Madison Bicentennial Ball. It was an evening of celebration. Men in tuxedos, ladies in evening gowns, flowers, great food and beverages, fabulous music and dancing made for an absolutely beautiful evening!

The next event to mark on your calendar is the 8th Annual Madison Antiques Show and Sale. It’s scheduled for February 26-28. As usual, it will be held at the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center. There will be a preview party the evening of February 26th. The preview is always great fun – and items can be purchased at the preview. Remember what they say about the early bird… The actual show and sale is February 27-28.

This antiques show is becoming quite well known. The local antiques dealers are not allowed to participate in the show. That might sound bad – but, it really isn’t. By doing that, other fabulous dealers are brought in for the show. The local antiques shops, like Antiques On The Square, stock up with as much new merchandise as possible. The show brings in customers from Georgia and surrounding states for the entire week. It’s one of the best weeks of the year for antiquing customers and shop owners alike.

Did you know Madison is now home to 4 antique malls and 6 antique shops? Not to mention all the other shops and restaurants. You can find out more about Madison and see a calendar of events by visiting their website at www.MadisonGa.org.

This year we plan to focus more attention on our website. We get fabulous local estate furniture and we still shop in Europe for all our beautiful china, art work, books, and accessory pieces. Numerous shipments of items arrive throughout the year. We will be photographing and adding items to the website as quickly as possible. Sometimes items sell immediately - practically as we are unboxing them. But, we will do our best to catalog everything asap.

Our furniture, lamp, and rug selection is constantly changing. If you’re looking for a particular item, or need information about an item on the website, please let us know.

Happy New Year and All The Best In The Coming Year!
