July 2019 VADA News
Summer weather has finally arrived and it’s time to enjoy all the wonderful outdoor antiques shows!
I was recently up in Maine for the Wells Antiques Show and Sale— a great show in a lovely setting. The weather was beautiful for most of the day. There was a good crowd and what appeared to be many happy buyers and dealers. Quite a few Vermont dealers were exhibiting and all those I spoke to were having a good show.
If you’re going to Brimfield in July, be sure to visit the dealers in the Vermont Tent in Green Acres Field.
New Hampshire is hosting two shows in July-- the 44th Annual Fitzwilliam Historical Society Antiques Show and Sale on the Commons on July 20th; and on July 27th, the 52nd Annual New London Garden Club Antiques Show and Sale on the New London Town Green. Plan to attend and visit with the many Vermont dealers among those exhibiting. Both shows are open from 9am to 3pm.
The Waterbury Flea Market is open every weekend, Saturday and Sunday, now through October 28th , 7am to 4pm. It is located at Farr’s Field, 1901 US Route 2 West, Waterbury.
It’s not too early to start making plans to attend the 5 shows of Vermont Antiques Week, October 3rd through the 6th! Autumn is a lovely time to visit Vermont and antique while enjoying the fall foliage. If you would like to know more about all the shows, visit www.vermontantiquesweek.com. There you will find all you need to know about the 5 shows as well as information about the area including lodging, restaurants, and local attractions.
Enjoy your summer and have fun antiquing!
