Benton Antiques Grand Re-Opening

. May 11, 2008

Closed for two months for renovations, Benton Antiques, Etc., in Benton, Pennsylvania, will have a Grand Re-opening Celebration Saturday, May 17th and Sunday, May 18th with treats, door prizes, and special sale items. The market is located in a turn-of-the-century building, originally the Benton Store Company, and later a hardware store, at 235 Main Street.

Using great care to maintain the original integrity of the building, the original plank flooring has been newly refurbished and many items long hidden from view, such as the original wainscoting on the walls and ceiling, have been brought back to life. Windows long covered over have found new meaning.

Adding to the historic charm of the building is appropriate lighting and a vintage stained glass window which exactly fit an original opening in the wall. Even a few doors, long collecting dust in the basement, have been reinstalled and are now in use.

The newly remodeled facility now houses thousands of antiques and collectibles on two floors from over 50 exhibitors. Furniture, lighting, primitives, jewelry, glassware, and china, to name just a few, fill the building.

Adding to the festive weekend will be the first anniversary celebration of The Bakery Antiques Company, located just across the street at 230 Main Street, with over 40 exhibitors and a wide variety of antiques and collectibles on three floors.
