This extremely popular event will feature 96 carefully screened exhibitors in room settings offering a truly impressive range of antiques. According to show manager? Melvin L.? Arion, the merchandise at York win run the full gamut, including 18th-and 19th-century period American and English furniture in beautiful hardwoods, as well as country pieces sporting original paint and decoration, fine early porcelain like Staffordshire, Delft, Canton, and Chinese Export, pottery such as redware and stoneware, Oriental carpets, quilts, hooked rugs, samplers, and other textiles, estate jewelry, Native American pottery and weavings, early kitchen and fireplace items, and much more. Arion does an outstanding job of making certain the mixture and variety of antiques shown here will be as broad as possible so that just about any visitor can find a “new” treasure! In addition, all major credit cards will be accepted, Arion’s way of making buying as convenient as possible.
Due to the wonderful reputation of York, there’s very little dealer turnover. However, a few of the older exhibitors have retired from the antiques business, leading to a few new faces for this show. They are: Bob Jessen – Jim Hohnwald, Fitzwilliam., New Hampshire; Dark Moon Antiques of Johnsonburg, New Jersey; Tom and Rose Cheap from Period Antiques in Scottsburg, Indiana; and Linens? by Church Hill Antiques of Pikesville, Maryland. In addition, the following Pennsylvania dealers will be participating: Robert M. Conrad, Yeagertown, and Dale Hunt of The Pembroke Shop in Wayne. Because of the low turnover, visitors can look forward to seeing and buying top quality antiques from show dealers they’ve, gotten to know and trust over the years. This York Show is considered by many to be one of the Premier antiquing events in the mid-Atlantic area!
