PEO Antiques and Appraisal Fair – Southport, NC 2009


Southport Chapter CB of the P.E.O. recently invited Azio Media to participate in the 6th Annual Antiques and Appraisal Fair. Prior to the opening hundreds of patrons lined up for admission to the Southport Community Center.

As the stream of collector’s and attic voyagers trickled in our exhibit proved extremely popular, largely thanks to interest in rare books (though the adjoining refreshment and pastry stand may have also played a small role). Azio Media featured a variety of older publications, including an antique Bible, World War II-era TIME Magazines, and a striking collection of Tolstoy’s short stories. Our inventory of magazines, covering most every month from the 1920s to the 1970s, piqued interest from folks looking for unique gifts for their loved ones.

The numerous questions regarding restoration was somewhat shocking given the uncertain state of the economy, but we will gladly restore the luster of a valued tome, not seen for generations. Overall, we relished the chance to chat about rare books and look forward to returning next year. Chatting about old books easily triggers a unique nostalgia trip; gab, old books and a curious mind encumbered by hands occupied with a cup of coffee and cookies can make matters a bit more volatile in our opinion…

Azio Media acquired this oil painting by Lynn Jerr at the show. The art show was so successful that the Association was able to award two scholarships rather than the one planned.

It’s easy to miss, tucked into the side of an office building in Shallotte, just across Smith Avenue from the Brunswick Beacon offices.

Azio Media attracts a fair traffic of browsers for its hardcovers, paperbacks, vintage vinyl LPs and assorted ephemera, but don’t let the book-lined showroom fool you. Its main business is in cyberspace.

Founded in 1998, the used-book dealership easily does 80 percent of its business online. It sells titles through Barnes & Noble.com, Borders.com, Amazon.com – which gives it a 5-star rating for customer satisfaction – and its own Web site, www.aziomedia.com.
