Imagine this…

Imagine this…a warm spring day, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping (or are those shoppers buzzing?!) After taking a stroll through the Country Heritage Museum and learning a few fun facts about the history of agriculture and farming you wander the stalls upon stalls of fabulous antique exhibitors. Maybe you’re searching for that perfect piece to finish off a room in your home, a piece that needs a little TLC but is guaranteed to be something magnificent or maybe you’re just browsing for that antique/vintage piece that calls out to you! Whatever brings you out to the Milton Antique Expo on June 8th you’re guaranteed a great time! Not only will you be surrounded with happy shoppers, sunny skies *hopefully*, classic stories of “my Grandma used to have this exact cookie jar!” but the exhibitors are guaranteed to be the best of the best! Making the trek from all over Ontario and Quebec to bring you the best show with top quality pieces, collectables and gems that are looking for a happy home. The scene is perfect! Shoppers who share the same interest, knowledgeable exhibitors set up on 80 acres of an interactive heritage park…a theme song playing in your head, which really sets the mood. Hang on! That’s not in your head…it’s in the air! That’s right folks, we will have not one, but TWO musical performances at our Antique Expo on June 8.

Happy to announce they will be returning on June 8 and will be entertaining periodically throughout the day. When they’re not performing, they will be hauling heavy purchases to the purchase pick-up area for loading! Thanks guys!

“In my booth on June 8th expect to see a great mix of early Canadiana Furnishings in original paint, any where from 1820′s to 1870′s, some interesting Folk Art, stoneware, advertising and decoy ducks from across Ontario.”

Connie and Jane Egan, Goderich, ON                                                                                                    “We are 2 small stores specializing in Ironstone, transfer ware, quilts and other textiles, country and painted furniture, vintage gamesboards, Victorian silver and garden furniture and accessories.  I will be bringing several 1930′s – 1950′s framed game boards, a pair of elaborate crystal candelabra and a French wreath – china flowers and doves with metal leaves under a dome. My mother Connie just got back from France with several crystal wall sconces and lots of French linen for the Milton show. ”
