Join Toomey & Co. at the Grove Park Inn

33 Years at the Grove Park Inn

After exhibiting at the National Arts & Crafts Conference at the Omni Grove Park Inn for the first 30 years, Toomey & Co.’s President John Toomey has been strictly an attendee for two of the last three years along with CEO Lucy Toomey and Vice President & Senior Specialist John Walcher. Our team is looking forward to making the trip once again to beautiful Asheville, North Carolina for the conference during the weekend of February 21-23, 2020.

Catching up in Asheville

We would love to catch up with you while we are in Asheville! Look for the Toomey & Co. trio at the antique and contemporary shows, listening to various lectures, or having a drink in the Great Hall (or on the terrace if the weather cooperates). We are eager to talk shop, discuss current industry trends and events, and just say hello.

National Arts & Crafts Conference

If you have not attended the conference in the past, it is a ‘must’ for any Arts & Crafts enthusiast. With lectures, small group discussions, workshops and, of course, the antiques and contemporary shows, the conference has something for everyone. If you are arriving early, be sure to support The Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms by attending their annual, kick-off Craftsman Reception on Thursday, February 20 from 6 to 8 PM in the Grove Park Inn’s Skyline Room.
