The 2013 San Francisco Fall Antiques Show (SFFAS) returns Thursday, October 24 through Sunday, October 27, at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion with its theme this year: Jazz Moderne: Art Deco & the Avant Garde.
The SFFAS is a vetted show that presents sixty international specialists in a range of high-end art and antiques collecting areas. San Francisco resident and Bay Area native, Kitty Margolis will serve as Honorary Chair with an elite band of committee members, led by Co-Chairs Michele Goss and Adrianna Pope Sullivan putting on the Ritz for this time-honored show.
