– (Philadelphia) Noonmark Antiques, a rising star in the world of high-end Americana, will be returning to The Princeton Fall Antiques and Fine Art Show. The annual show runs from September 24-26. Over 50 diversified exhibitors will fill booths with antiques and art ranging from the 18th through early 20th century. The dealers bring knowledge and experience to answer questions and advise customers on decorating ideas. Moorestown, NJ-based Noonmark, specializing in American painted furniture and folk art, will be at home at the show for the fifth year in a row.
After just four years in business, Noonmark Antiques is getting the attention of top dealers and show promoters with their fresh approach to Americana folk art. Recently, the Antiques Dealers’ Association of America recognized the credibility and integrity of Lisa and Charlie Hammell, owners of Noonmark Antiques. The ADA-the premier association for the antiques business-invited the Hammells to join. The invitation, offered by John Keith Russell, President, holds Noonmark Antiques to the highest standards of ethics and quality-something the Board of Directors recognized in the Hammells before extending the invitation.
Of their new status in the trade, Lisa Hammell says, “I am delighted and honored that the Board of Directors of the ADA has such high regard for our work in the antiques business. This is my passion, and I am proud to receive this recognition from my peers.”
Lisa and Charlie Hammell are bringing their years of study and experience to bear in this new business. With ample experiences in retail, technology innovation and the arts, Charlie is applying all of these to Noonmark Antiques’ branding strategy, customer relations, web site and aesthetics. Lisa, with an ancestry that reaches back to the founders of Germantown (Philadelphia) and William Penn, is applying her passion for history and research to Noonmark. They strive to bring the highest quality and rarity of American folk art to clients. Their client focus is a bit unique, too. In addition to working with collectors, decorators and other dealers, Noonmark is taking a special interest in younger lifestyle consumers who may be new to antiques but want something different for their homes.
Says Charlie Hammell: “We are thrilled to begin the 2011 season with the endorsement of the ADA. The York show kicks things off on Labor Day. With our strength in Pennsylvania painted furniture and folk art, we will be a great fit. We look forward to meeting new clients there.”
The Princeton show runs from Friday, September 24 (gala party) through Sunday, September 26. For more information, go to www.NoonmarkAntiques.com or call 609-313-8275.
