In addition, clock repair by Father Time Antiques, and crystal repair by Art Glass of Tidewater will be available. This year we will also have vendors in the Commons Area. They will have additional items such as vinyl records and jewelry made from broken vintage and antique china. The Peanut Pals are returning this year as well. Members of this organization will have Planter’s, Mr. Peanut and related merchandise on display and for sale. Pour Favor and Bartlett Tree Experts will have some additional items available. “We have a number of new dealers and vendors this year”, said Linda Bunch, Executive Director. “Some new things to look for include coins and paper ephemera, civil war relics, fireplace mantels, Beatrix Potter items, art glass and folk art. The French Corner, a new downtown Suffolk business, will feature French antiques and collectibles. Our Antiques Show Chair, Dixie Peachy and her committee have put together another great show and event”. In addition to the antiques, collectibles and vintage treasures, many patrons find the Antiques Show offers a chance to meet friends for shopping and then conversation over a meal or refreshments. The cafeteria will be serving barbecue, Brunswick stew, and chicken salad from Rodman’s BBQ, hot dogs, ham rolls and homemade desserts. Eat in or take out is available. Proceeds from the Antique Show and Sale support the many programs offered by the Suffolk Art League including classes and workshops at the Suffolk Art Gallery, in the Suffolk school systems and in northern Suffolk locations. The Art League also offers exhibits of local and regional artists work, lectures, bus excursions and performances. Two student scholarships programs are available for students in grades 6 to 12 to help them begin or continue their artistic endeavors. Suffolk Art League would like to thank Suffolk Department of Parks and Recreation and Suffolk Public Schools for their support of the Antique Show.
