It was quite the fantastic Saturday at Gadsden’s Milton Fall Antique Expo for Ms. Rabbit and the rest of her burrow...
This show is brand new and they have definitely made the effort to secure it as one of the better antiques comparable to the early days of the Christie Antique Show. Located at the scenic Country Heritage Park, admission was $10 and this included access not only to the antique show but also to the park’s heritage buildings and exhibits.
Top antique dealers from Ontario and Quebec present offered a selection of antiques, collectibles, retro design and art. This was not a huge show and could be navigated in an hour or two. The food offered was average; however, the honkytonk/jazzy music provided by the “Grease Marks” made lunch a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I picked up several finds at this show including a leather bound book from 1788 for $10, a legal document concerning an indentured servant from 1831 for $20 and a lovely tintype of two girls in its original frame for $20.
