July 25-26 — WOODSTOCK — Vermont Antiques Dealers’Association will present its 41st consecutive show and sale and offer their wares for sale in room settings that promise to delight visitors. With dealers from around New England, as well as Missouri, California, New York, Kentucky and Ohio, “Antiques & Art in Woodstock” will open July 25 and 26 at the Union Arena in Woodstock.
Fifty-five shops will once again display the fresh and interesting merchandise that the public has come to anticipate. There is always something for every taste from folk art to formal and from big to small. The association’s motto still remains: “The Best Antiques that Vermont has to Offer.”
This year the association will offer free general admission to the under-30 crowd. Seasoned collectors and buyers know that antiques can offer a wide range of enjoyments including the hunt for that special treasure. Additionally, antique case furniture can far surpass a contemporary equivalent in quality while being less pricey. In addition, antique and collectible purchases can often hold their value when a contemporary item might not. The hope is to encourage, entice and educate a younger consumer market.
The Vermont ADA admission ticket price profits support causes important to Vermonters. Profits from the 2014 show went to The Woodstock Pantry Shelf, Reading-Brownsville Food Shelf, Neighbors Helping Neighbors in Bridgewater as well as to The Upper Valley Haven.
The show runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The Union Arena is located on Rte. 4 just 1.5 miles west of the Woodstock Green.
