Anne Hamilton, The Newport Show Chair, who proposed the idea of a summer antiques show in Newport, and Diana Bittel, Show Manager since its inception in 2007 are both delighted the Show could take place, even if not in person. Diana Bittel had this to say about this virtual year; “I hope past show supporters will look at what our dealers are offering and jump right in and buy, buy, buy. I also hope to see them all next year when our world in back in order.”
