Union Arena overflows with art and antiques

July 30-31 — WOODSTOCK—Vermont Antiques Dealers’Association (VADA) will present its 42nd consecutive show and sale and offer 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 30 and 31 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.”

Seasoned collectors and buyers know that antiques can offer a wide range of enjoyments including the hunt for that special treasure and the show encourages new collectors with items at all price levels. Additionally, antique case furniture can far surpass a contemporary equivalent in quality while being less pricey and holding its value over time. The association is always looking for ways to encourage, entice and educate a younger and/or new consumer market.

The $10 admission profits support causes important to Vermonters. In past years, profits have been donated to the Woodstock Pantry Shelf, Reading-Brownsville Food Shelf, Neighbors Helping Neighbors in Bridgewater as well as to the Upper Valley Haven.

Lunch will be catered by 3 Squares Vermont. On-site shipping will be available.

Show dates are Saturday, July 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, July 31 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Union Arena is located on Rte. 4 just 1.5 miles west of the Woodstock Green. For more information contact Greg Hamilton at 802-877-3359 or visit
