Quail Run Antiques Show

The Quail Run Antiques Show co-chairs Skip Ryan and Elizabeth Rodriguez. The show will be held October 14th - 16th at The High Hampton Inn.

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.  

Since 1922, High Hampton Inn and Country Club, surrounded by the ethereal beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has been hosting generation after generation of guests who return time and again to renew, rejuvenate and reconnect amidst nature’s playground.  Listed on National Register of Historic Places, tradition and hospitality rule the day at this mountain resort where customs such as Afternoon Tea and dressing for dinner and are held in as high regard as the stunning scenery and golf, recreation and children’s programs.  

The show will be open 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.  Daily tickets are $12 and will be sold at the door.  A cocktail supper will be held on Friday, October 14th, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. in the High Hampton Inn Pavilion.  Tickets to the cocktail supper are $100 and are available by contacting the Cashiers Historical Society at (828) 743-7710 or info@cashiershistoricalsociety.org

The Quail Run Antique Show

by Donna Rhodes

If regional history and vintage furniture and art are right up your alley, then The Quail Run Antique Show and Preview, organized by Michael and Nancy Weaver, are sure to please.

The Weavers, professional benefit planners, have been presenting dealer trade events for over thirty years. Attending one of their extravaganzas is like going to a furniture trade show… only every piece in every booth is a unique treasure from centuries past.

The Weavers don’t just handle a show’s details; they know every dealer and every item sold. They are veteran experts in all antique collection with a special interest is silver flatware and hollow ware.

Nancy Weaver says, “We have lots of friends who are shop owners and collectors. A few months ago we were talking to Skip Ryan, local dealer. He suggested hosting a show that benefitted the Cashiers Historical Society, of which he is a member.”  So the Weavers began preparations for a fall event. Ryan found the location, the High Hampton Pavilion, which will provide the perfect venue for an elegant preview party. From that acorn of an idea, Ryan and Weavers have grown a tree.

As a bonus to the affair, Chris Mitchell, who has been a regular on the Antique Road Show offering his expertise in Civil War military antiques, will be a featured guest. So dust off your Confederate weaponry and memorabilia and bring them down for an appraisal.

If you are a collector looking for that special home addition or simply an appreciator of classic furniture and art you will be certain to find just what you are looking for at this expansive and impressive display of fine vintage pieces. And in the process of adding a touch of history to your home, you will be helping make a little financial history for the Historical Society.

The Quail Run Antique Show will be held October 14th, 15th, and 16th. Call (828) 743-6565 for more information.
