Weston Antiques Show
The 58th annual Weston Antiques Show, dubbed by the New York Times as “one of the best small shows in New England”, will take place on Friday, September 30, and Saturday, October 1. The Show will be preceded by a Gala Preview from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 29, offering an advance opportunity to examine – and snap up – the cream of the crop. The Show takes place in the Weston Playhouse, adjacent to Route 100 in the center of Weston Village. The show is intended to appeal to all, from the casual browser to the serious collector, and there are dealers to suit every taste in a broad range of prices. Antique clock expert Harry Hepburn of Hermitage Antiques in Harrison, Maine, will share his expertise and answer questions for attendees who wish to bring an antique clock to his booth. Hepburn is a member and past president of the Maine Antique Dealers Association. He is recognized as a pre-eminent expert on the subject of antique clocks, and will be available for consultation between 10 a.m. and 12 noon on Saturday. Clocks must be medium to small in size, easily carried by the owner. There is no fee for a consultation; show admittance is required. The Weston Antiques Show is a production of the Weston Community Association and is entirely managed and staffed by volunteers. Proceeds from the show go the preservation and enhancement of the Weston Playhouse. Admission to the Show is $10, or $75 for the Gala Preview. Show patrons will be entered into a drawing for a framed photographic print by professional photographer Nobushi Fuji’i and will be offered a complimentary trial subscription to the Maine Antiques Digest.
