The weekend weather in the Mid Atlantic states is supposed to be beautiful this weekend, which means everyone will want to get out of their homes and outdoors. This is a good thing since there are many good antique shows and events happening this weekend. The first you could actually combine with a trip to the beach, Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.The All Saints Antiques Show is being held on August 2-5 at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. This is an annual antiques and vintage collectibles show that attracts many quality dealers and hundreds of visitors from New York, Pennsylvania, Washington DC and New Jersey. The show features antique furniture, vintage porcelain and glass as well as antique lighting, rugs and ephemera. If you have never been to the Delaware shore, this is the best way to combine two events into one; relax at the beach after hitting the show.
If you are in the Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland, Washington DC metro area, you may want to hit the Civitan Flea Market in Arlington, Virginia. We used to set up at this flea market many years ago and it really used to be a seller’s market. We sold a lot of antique and vintage glass and collectibles. Nowadays it is more a buyer’s market, and you can find some really good bargains here. At this flea market you will find vintage collectibles and some antiques along with household items and products.If you are in the Central New York or Northern Pennsylvania area, you may want to stop at the Park Avenue SummerArt Fest. If you were to judge by the name, this art festival would be located in New York City, but it is actually in Rochester, New York. The Park Avenue Summer Art Fest attracts over 300 artists and thousands of visitors and features paintings, jewelry, and furniture.
