Expanded MESDA tour format
« on: November 14, 2010, 11:25:10 PM »
While attending a Saturday furniture seminar at MESDA on 11/13 it was announced that MESDA would be expanding the tour format to three types of tours.

1- One hour tour for the highlights. Regular hours.
2- Two hour extended. Fri-Sat evenings or any time by appointment.
3- Customized tour to your needs. With your own guide. By appointment only.

In the next couple of weeks the newest rooms will be open making 90% of MESDA's collection available for viewing. MESDA is  very attune to SAPFM members needs, in large part because of past and present SAPFM members being on the MESDA advisory board. Tom Sears past and Matt Hobbs presently. If you have not been to MESDA it is well worth the trip.

Agrees, absolutely worth a visit if in the area. The furniture collection has some really outstanding examples of early southern work and is home to one of only 2 known examples of southern Court Cupboards. Actually, Court considers herself the Star of the show & I am not going to disagree with her. After all, Court is the only piece of furniture I know of that has her own FaceBook account.
