Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival Preview Party

Last night the Preview Party for the CVPF was held at the Metro Convention Center in Hickory, NC.  The Preview Party is the primary fund-raiser for the Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival. The Party is always held the Friday night before the main Festival.  Last night guests were offered an early buying opportunity. Along with a preview of potters’ wares, a Southern supper (buffet style) was served and music was provided by the Sigmon Stringers.  This non-profit event benefits the Catawba County Historical Association in Newton, and the North Carolina Pottery Center in Seagrove.
Show held at this lovely venue.

Chairs of the couple who secured their place first in line to purchase pottery on Friday night.  They were prepared to wait a number of hours to have first opportunity for buying.

 Buyers line up early for this show.  When I arrived early on Friday morning to park van to be ready to unload there was already a group of folks waiting to get in show.  First in line was a family from Ohio who had secured their place around midnight on Thursday night for the show that opened at 7:00 on Friday night.  There is always a long line that forms early for this show each year.

Great salad.
Great dessert.
Sigmon Singers..
 Fun evening and sales weren't bad either.
