Hi my name is Sal Hamdy and I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I am a third generation antique dealer . My parents and my grandparents were in the antique business in Cairo and Alexandria Egypt, as well as London, UK. I sold my first major painting (Zoulouga) at age 18 and at that point I was hooked. I graduated from the Academy of art in Cairo and had a successful career in the movie industry in Egypt, England and France. In 1988 I arrived to the U.S. where Shelley and I met and married. Our antique adventure took us from Taos, New Mexico...on to Dallas, Texas...and finally culminating in Los Angles, California where we built a successful business. After many years of the fast pace of Los Angles we made a decision to relocate to a slower and better quality of life here in the "City Different". Shelley will pick it up from here. Be sure to follow our next posting. Till next time be happy, healthy and safe!
