Dear Clients and Friends,
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to our 13 th Annual Preview Show August 19-21 at our showroom in Berkeley. Please, save the date! This is the show we have all come to look forward to: it is your chance to see the new acquisitions from my summer buying trip. This year I have found some incredible things!

Please mark your calendar! I look forward to showing you all of the new treats in our
beautiful Berkeley showroom.
Friday hours 11-7
With Every Good Wish,
