Antiquing Excursions 2015 - 2016

On December 9th we visited Historic Smithfield, on the edge of the Virginia Tech Campus.

Smithfield house Antique Group

We had a great visit and wonderful hospitality for our meeting at this historic house. Smithfield volunteers were friendly welcoming and generous with their time. Our small group had a lovely morning there, a delicious lunch and good companionship as well as learning a lot of fascinating local history from our excellent guide, April.

The lunch was delightful: period style small bites, quiche, fried battered coleslaw, tiny biscuits and fresh salad served with wassail cups or tea and followed by gingerbread and variety of small pastries and truffles and coffee.

We are planning a trip to the Farmer Auction Gallery on February 2nd to learn how they run their auctions and with their gallery manager preview some of the sale items for their planned auction that night.

We may at a later date go to one of their Tuesday evening sales.
