News-Antique.com - May 24,2010 - Show promoters Tracy Dodge and Steve Lipman of The Yellow Garage Antiques of Mullica Hill, New Jersey announced that the forth annual JUNE FESTIVAL OF ANTIQUES has been scheduled for Saturday, June 12th, 2010. Tracy and Steve have owned and operated a thirty-five dealer antique marketplace for the last 14 years. Three years ago the married couple started The June Festival to help promote their shop. "We have show quality merchandise in our shop all year long. The idea of a show at the fairgrounds, which is only one mile away, seemed like an ideal way to bring people here that may normally only buy at shows" stated Lipman. "It is definitely working. We have gained more national recognition for the shop as an antiques destination and the day of the show is always one of our best. The town is inandated with serious antique buyers from throughout the region."
This year's show will feature 55 quality dealers under the cover of three pavilions and about 50 more dealers set-up on the lawn areas of the Gloucester County 4-H Fairgrounds. The popular event is known for having a great selection of quality antiques ranging from country to formal, large and small. Categories will include country Americana such as samplers, quilts, baskets, folkart, items in original and old painted surfaces, furniture, decoys, redware and stoneware; also fine jewelry, linens and other textiles, ephemera including postcards, formal 18th, 19th, and 20th Century furniture and accesories, lighting, garden accesories, fine glass and ceramics, art pottery, fine art, historical Americana, and much more. In the first three years the show has drawn dealers from all over the East and crowds of fifteen hundred or more.
Headliners for this year's show include Boggs Boynton of Clarksboro, NJ, Granthum 1762 of Denton, MD, Mark Witus of Gladstone, NJ, Linda Grier of Langhorn, PA, Herman Woolfrey III of West Chester, PA, Sport and Spool of Goldsboro, NC, Country Antiques Two of Mullica Hill, NJ, Ayscough's Antiques of Chadds Ford, PA, Port Republic Decoys of Port Republic, NJ, and Primarily Primitives of New Hope, PA, to name a few.
The June Festival of Antiques is held once a year at the Gloucester County 4-H fairgrounds which is one mile south of the Historic District of Mullica Hill, NJ on state highway 77. There is ample free parking. Excellent food and drinks from Fat Jack’s BBQ of Washington Twsp. will be available all day during the show hours of 9am-4pm. The show is rain or shine.
