. September 25, 2008

The California Country Antique American Country & Folk Art Show will be held in Los Altos, CA on October 19th from 10am-4pm.

The show will be held inside and out of the Hillview Community Center at 97 Hillview Avenue in Los Altos, CA.

“Candle Power” is the featured exhibit at this show. Long before electricity, and the associated energy issues we’re faced with today, candles were a primary method of lighting. From the 17th to late 19th centuries, the exhibit will show examples of candle holders, candle molds, early tallow candles, candle sticks and candle boxes. Come see the types of materials and forms of candle power that was used in early American history.
