Admission to the event is $6 per person, good for both days. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the day, both days.
Many changes to the show have taken place during the past 60-plus years. This year is no exception, with the addition of new dealers for a total of five states represented.
The Oregon Woman’s Club, a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, sponsors this show as a major fund-raising event and uses the proceeds to help fund various community projects and charities.
The Blackhawk Center Sports Arena offers ample parking, handicap accessibility and a huge area for the 52 Midwest antique dealers to display their merchandise.
Quality antiques from the early 1800s through the retro era of the 1950s includes all areas of collecting — furniture, glass, china, pottery, toys, primitives, textiles, jewelry, dolls, silver, decorator items and more.
The food concession will be provided by the Chana United Methodist Ladies. The menu will include Homemade Chicken & Noodles, Sloppy Joes and various other sandwiches, chips, beverages and a selection of desserts.
Mary Lou’s Crystal Repair from Joliet, Ill., will be on hand both days to repair damaged heirlooms “while you wait.”
