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…
