There are more than 1,300 booths available to view – both inside and outside - this is the big one – don’t miss it! If you are a treasure hunter, decorator, collector or just like to find pieces from your past, the July Expo Antique & Collectible Show is for you.

Exhibitors come from all over the country bringing their most interesting and popular vintage items. Just as you see on the popular collecting programs, such as American Pickers, you can find that treasured item buried among the thousands of booths at the show. Most of the exhibitors are part timers who enjoy finding items, then finding a permanent home for them. Attending an Antique & Collectible Show can be an emotional and fun-filled journey into the past. Seeing items from your childhood provoke wonderful memories such as your grandmother’s cookie jar, holiday decorations, board games and memorabilia. Pricing for many of the treasures you find at the show are modest and there is nothing like coming home and unwrapping those newly found treasure. For many it’s a second chance at owning that item that your mother threw away.

“It used to be that going to a collectible show meant completing a collection, and that’s still true for some. Today, however, we are seeing our visitors looking for decorative items for their homes, the ingredients to make a cool, vintage item, vintage clothing, tin toys that make a great conversation item in your home, period lighting, furniture and kitchenware from the 1940s and 50s. “As an example, I just found the perfect lighting fixture to match our 1912 house.” noted Christine Palmer, show manager and producer.

At the July Antique & Collectible Show patrons can buy pop collectibles, vintage clothing, glassware, silverware, antique radios from the 1930’s, turn-of-the-century furniture, movie memorabilia, collectible toys, sports memorabilia. If you’re a fan of collectible toys, look for wind-up mechanical toys, porcelain dolls, Star Wars collectibles, Sci-Fi books and comics and much more. If you grew up in the 1970’s –– sit-coms and movies bring back similar memories. The July show makes those childhood memories come to life, with items for sale from vendors featuring antique toys, from toy trucks, planes and trains to 1860s cast-iron toys, German and Japanese tin-toys and steel mechanical banks.

Do you have treasures in your attic? Expert appraisers will be on hand to identify and evaluate show patrons individual pieces if brought to the show. Its only $7.00 per item (with show admission). These market evaluations are offered by ISA appraisers (the top in the industry), and proceeds benefit the local food banks.
