Show promoters Tracy Dodge and Steve Lipman of The Yellow Garage Antiques of Mullica Hill, New Jersey announced that the third annual JUNE FESTIVAL OF ANTIQUES has been scheduled for Saturday, June 13th, 2009. Although it is a relatively new show, the June Festival with its 100 plus dealers is becoming one of the most exciting events in the tri-state area.
“We have continued to draw the kind of dealers that set-up at the long established shows. There is a nucleus of great quality Americana dealers to go along with the other professional country dealers. Plus there is another large group of dealers who handle more diversified antiques. It makes for an excellent day of treasure hunting. We’ve tried to make the show like a mini-Brimfield, and considering how far some of the dealers travel to do the show, I think we’ve done it. I might add that the feedback from the show-goers has been excellent” said Lipman.
Some of the well travelled dealers include Scott Brasseur, from Western Pennsylvania, Gary Promey from Ohio, and Doug and Diane McIywayne from North Carolina.
“This year’s show will have something for everyone.” states Lipman. “We will have a diversity of antique furniture, Americana, fine art, pottery and china, glass, estate jewelry, ephemera including a huge collection of postcards and maps, toys, cast iron, garden accessories, quilts, samplers, baskets, stoneware, redware, primitives, antique sporting goods, Victoriana, Native American pottery, jewelry and artifacts, and even some mid-century modern.”
A few of the show headliners include Boggs Boynton of Clarksboro, NJ, Raccoon Creek Antiques of Oley, PA, Granthum 1763 of Denton, MD, Hart’s Country Antiques of New Oxford, PA, Susan’s Americana Gallery of Doylestown, PA, Ayscough’s Antiques of Chadd’s Ford, PA, Herman Woolfrey of West Chester, PA, Ken Silveri of Hamburg, PA, Country Treasures of Preston, MD, Dick Gove of Port Republic, NJ, Primarily Primitives of New Hope, PA and Linda Grier of Langhorn, PA.
The June Festival of Antiques is held once a year at the 4-H fairgrounds which are one mile south of the Historic District of Mullica Hill, NJ on state highway 77.
