The First Annual Quail Run Antiques Show will be held October 14th – 16th, 2011 at the High Hampton Inn Pavilion in Cashiers, NC and will benefit the Cashiers Historical Society. The show will feature local, national and international dealers offering a wide range of English, American and Continental furniture and decorative arts including a vendor who specializes in Civil War artifacts.
Since the mid-1800s families have flocked to Cashiers for the fall to enjoy all of the spectacular natural scenery that the mountains have to offer. Visitors come to this village in the summer and fall to enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful community that still thrives here. The Antiques Show is perfectly timed to take place at the height of leaf season.
The Show is co-chaired by Elizabeth Rodriguez and Skip Ryan. “We are extremely pleased to host the first Quail Run Antiques Show this year. Cashiers is emerging as a leading destination in the south for quality American and European antiques, so we think this show will have great appeal to a wide range of audiences,” commented Ryan and Rodriguez.
The honorary chairman is internationally recognized and local favorite interior designer Charles Faudree. Mr. Faudree will do a book signing on Saturday, October 15 at the High Hampton Inn Pavilion for his new book, Charles Faudree Details with proceeds benefiting the Cashiers Historical Society. The “King” of French-inspired interior design, Mr. Faudree is a new resident of Cashiers and his clients come to him from around the world.
The Cashiers Historical Society is one of the top civic organizations in Western North Carolina. The group not only owns and operates the Zachary-Tolbert House Museum, which is special for its rural vernacular Greek Revival architecture and large collection of plain-style furniture, but also actively works to save the historic resources of Cashiers and maintain the village’s sense of place. The Historical Society works closely with many groups in Western North Carolina including the historic High Hampton Inn.
