After the Guyette & Schmidt auction most collectors headed to Plymouth Mass. for the Copley Fine art and Decoy sale. The views where beautiful and so were Stevie O'Brien's offerings! A small area near the auction site was set aside for dealers to display and sell. O'Brien is setting a new standard for preview displays. The room was arranged to highlight the decoys and paintings that would be offered giving prospective bidders a chance to view and handling items properly.
