Antiques go on the table at annual show

The Greater Vernon Museum holds its 21st Annual Antiques & Collectibles Show Feb. 26 and 27 at the Vernon Rec Centre

The Greater Vernon Museum’s staff, volunteers and antique vendors are all preparing to make the 21st Annual Antiques & Collectibles Show & Sale the biggest and best show of its kind in the Interior.

“With the majority of our vendors returning year after year, we also welcome new vendors to add their unique flair to the show,” said Denise Marsh, marketing and communications coordinator for the museum. “Table rentals are right on track. As of January 13 we only had a handful of tables left.”

Marsh reminds new and returning vendors to contact the museum as soon as possible to reserve their spot.

The show and sale will take place at the Recreation Centre Auditorium and Dogwood Gymnasium, with more than 15,000 square feet of sales area and up to 150 tables.

“Dealers and collectors from all over the province bring thousands of antiques and collectibles to sell,” said Marsh. “These items can include everything from coins, jewelry, books, furniture, glassware, postcards and more.

“All proceeds from admission, the concession and table rentals go directly to support the museum and its programs.”

This year’s event runs Feb. 26 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Feb. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $3 per adult per day, with children 12 years and under admitted free. For more information, call the museum at 250-542-3142.
