Dear Clients and Friends,


Gallia, Maga Agency, 1921

I am delighted to invite you to enjoy our collection of original vintage posters at the St. Christopher’s Antique Show at the end of this month. If you are on our mailing list, then we already share an appreciation for the window into history that original advertising posters provide.

Recently, I have been reading about the French Loterie. We have bought and sold these charming posters for many years, they skirt the edge of art deco and in style would have been quite modern for their time period. To read more, check out our latest blog.

Our collection is very strong right now. We have tremendous travel posters, beautiful bicycle posters,  marvelous mid century modern posters and great general dynamics posters.

Our Berkeley Showroom is now in it’s 6th year. Some of you have paid us a visit. We enjoy hanging new themed shows every few months, and we love love love doing frame design with clients. That being said- you don’t have to schlep all the way to Berkeley to get a dose of the magic of posters. We will be in your neighborhood very soon. Please measure your walls and come sift through our dynamite collection. If your walls are full,  but you love your posters, then forward this email to your friends and neighbors, maybe make a date to visit the show together. We appreciate your referrals.

Charly Leys will be in the booth on Saturday. Charly trained with master framer Glenn Young of Artscapes Framing in Campbell, and she is now a managing partner of Artscapes. Talk to her about your posters and she will help you design the perfect treatment. On Friday and Sunday, meet Kate Klingbeil. Kate is an accomplished artist and trained lithographer, who can deepen your understanding of how posters were printed.

We look forward to seeing you at the show!

We wish you all a Happy New Year!

Elizabeth, Charly, & Kate
