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.

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.
