    We are looking for an exhibitor and speaker on antique stoves to come to the Wood Stove Decathlonhttps://www.facebook.com/events/667753249920623/. Anyone know someone close to DC that may want to exhibit a beautiful old stove and speak about the history of wood stoves? Could be one of the folks who refurbish and sell antique stoves. Here is a listing of exhibitors so far: http://www.forgreenheat.org/stovedesign/exhibition.html. We still have a few exhibitor spaces left - and would love to have a panel on the history of wood stoves.

    Not sure they are ready to travel, but you should start with Richard Richardson - this guy:
    http://www.hearth.com/visit/goodtime/source/10inside.html

    I'd say he is one of the top 5 in the USA when it comes to antique stoves. He is pretty much the wikipedia in his head!!!!

    Hard to imagine them spending any or much money though. I think you can make contact and he may be able to refer you to some of his industry buddies closer down that way (if they exist)....

    There is a guy near me in RI - it's on my list to get a tour someday:
