Convention 2009 Begins - 4-30-2009

Well the 2009 Majolica International Society convention has begun.

New York weather has been very agreeable. It allowed me a beautiful run in Central Park where I did get a chance to see the Pavilion Tunnel and view the 19th Century Minton tile ceilings. Outstanding!

The members arriving early were treated to a bus ride to Long Island collector homes. It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Friday has the same trip planned for those that arrived today.

MajoliCake and Coffee is planned for this evening and will have great member presentations about the whys and hows of their collecting habits.

Wish you were here.
