2018 Annual Party/Luncheon/Meeting/FEA-Traders’ Treasure Market

Another fun FEA Annual Party – the best party and best party-value in the Bay Area!  

·            Fun with Friends. A carefree, memorable afternoon with the warm and fascinating FEA members (and their guests) at Holbrook-Palmer Park in Atherton, complete with air-conditioned building and shaded patio, lush landscaping and stately trees. 

·            Delicious Lunch. Drinks and tempting hors d’oeuvres as well as a catered buffet with a scrumptious Thai menu that put the true “Thai” back in command!

·         The FEA Traders’ Treasure Market. A huge favorite. Shopping and sleuthing at tables full of artifacts, textiles, jewelry, and art from every corner of the world.  The treasures were hand-picked and sold personally by FEA’s own art lovers, world-class dealers, cultural experts, and dedicated travelers.
