The First Day of Christmas

Welcome to the Fourth Annual Twelve Days of Christmas! This show features the highest quality art, antiques, jewelry and design — all available for purchase.

The fun twist on the Twelve Days of Christmas Show is that each dealer in the show will post one fresh piece each day, beginning on December 5th and running through December 16th. Be on the lookout for a new feature — video! Some dealers will have videos to accompany their objects — if you don't tune in, you'll miss out!

The AADLA membership represents the best of the best in the business, and you can buy with absolute confidence.  Enjoy our selections on this First Day of Christmas.
