On November 15 and November 16, Oxford will host its 41st consecutive antiques show and sale, sponsored by the Oxford Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary.
This year’s show will feature period furniture, silver, works of art, delicate china, pottery and glass, toys, clocks, crystal, fine jewelry, and a fascinating array of collectibles, as well as a large display of oyster plates of every possible description.
Since Oxford is the sailboat center of the Eastern Shore, it is easy to travel to by boat. Town Creek offers marina and boatyard facilities. The oldest privately operated ferry in the United States, which originated in 1683, traverses the Tred Avon River, the distance of only three-quarter of a mile between Oxford and the village of Bellevue. It’s also easy to reach Oxford by automobile. Take Route 301 and Interstate 50 to Easton, then travel 10 miles to Oxford. Oxford is only 30 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, or 50 miles from Salisbury, Maryland.
The Oxford Antiques Show is a worthy fund raiser organized and run to help support the volunteer fire company whose members serve the townspeople.
The show opens on Saturday, November 15, at 10 a.m., and continues to 6 p.m. On Sunday, November 16, the hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $3. Free parking is available on a large adjacent lot. The Oxford Fire Company building is located on the main highway as you enter the town.
