NAPLES — David and Lee Ann Lester promised big things from their first art fair hosted out of a refurbished Albertson's shopping market in North Naples.

And by Tuesday, at the 6 p.m. close of the four-day Naples International Art & Antique Fair, it was clear they had delivered.

"I'm exhausted and exhilarated," said Jacqueline Smelkinson, of Moylan/Smelkinson, a dealer of porcelain and antique jewelry. "Every day there was a line of people waiting to come into the show, and there was never a letup. We did very well. I think the show has enormous potential."

By some accounts, the show is already fulfilling that potential. Smelkinson said she deals mostly in smaller items with a median range of $3,000 to $5,000, and while she had plenty of those sales, many dealers with six- and seven-figure items saw stratospheric sales.
