Antiquefest under the tents this weekend

The 16th Annual Antiquefest is set for this weekend, July 19 and 20 in the Morrisburg Plaza.

This is the second time the long-running event has been held at the plaza venue. 

Although the antique trade has taken a bit of a hit in these tough economic times, the Morrisburg BIA, organizers of this year’s event, have been able to grow the show for the upcoming 2014 edition.

Grace McDonough, BIA coordinator says that they expect to have about a 20 vendors participating, which is more than last year.

The dealers will be under 13 tents that will fill the mall courtyard and a portion of the parking lot. 

“There will be a little of everything,” said McDonough who has antique vendors bringing in furniture, primitives, glassware, jewellery, artwork and collectables.

Admission is free and the show goes on, rain or shine. 

“The fact that the dealers are willing to invest in participating in this show tells me that we have a good show here,” said McDonough. 

Antiquefest takes place in the Morrisburg Plaza, Saturday July 19 from 10-5 and Sunday, July 20, 10-4.
