Step back into another time—specifically, the 18th and 19th centuries—and surround yourself with works of craftsmanship and experience the stories these handmade pieces could tell.
Step back into another time—specifically, the 18th and 19th centuries—and surround yourself with works of craftsmanship and experience the stories these handmade pieces could tell. The Chester County Antiques & Arts Show is bursting with stories.
More than 40 exhibitors from 13 states will be happy to tell you the provenance of the many museum-quality pieces on display as the Chester County Historical Society brings hundreds of antiques and art pieces for sale at its biggest fundraising event, March 9 through 11.
The Antiques & Arts show is part of CCHS’s 125th anniversary, and is aptly named “Past, Present & Future.” Proceeds support its mission of strengthening bonds between Chester County’s community and its history. For those not familiar with the treasure trove that is the historical society, the West Chester location houses a remarkable library plus extensive galleries.
The new location for the show is the Church Farm School’s campus in Exton. Celebrating its own 100th anniversary this year, Church Farm School is dedicated to building a top-tier education for its diverse community.
This year’s antiques show, the 36th, will let you browse and buy a wide array of antique functional and decorative arts—silver, ceramics, needlework, rugs, fine furniture, period jewelry, and antique books, prints, maps and paintings.
If you’re looking for something unique to add to your home, this is a rare opportunity to shop over 40 respected sources at one site. Each booth is a carefully curated display reflecting the exhibitor’s style and taste.
A lively catered preview party launches two full days of the show, a must for everyone from curious hobbyists to hardcore collectors. Whether you buy or just browse, it’s a day well spent.
When: March 9–11
Where: Church Farm School, 1001 E. Lincoln Hwy., Exton
