Oregon Antiques Show, Sponsored by Oregon Woman's Club
* 4th Weekend of March
* Located at Blackhawk Center 1101 Jefferson Street
The Oregon Woman's Club is proud to announce their 65th annual antique show. Many changes have taken place during the past sixty+ years developing one of the premier antique shows in Northern Illinois. This year is no exception, with the addition of new and returning dealers, it is shaping up to be another great event. The Oregon Woman's Club, a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs, sponsors this show as a major fund raising event and uses the proceeds to help fund various community projects and charities.
As in past years, the show will be held at the Blackhawk Center Sports Arena, located on the Oregon public school campus. The facility offers ample parking, handicap accessibility and a huge area for our 52 Midwest antique dealers to display their merchandise for sale. Quality antiques from the early 1800's through the retro era of the 1950's includes all areas of collecting - furniture, glass, china, pottery, toys, primitives, textiles, jewelry, dolls, silver, decorator items and more. You will be amazed at the selection available. There will be items for all collecting tastes and budgets, for both the new and advanced collector. We like to think of it as 'comfort food for the eyes'.
The food concession will be provided by the Chana United Methodist Ladies. The menu will include 'Homemade Chicken & Noodles', Sloppy Joes and various other sandwiches, chips, beverages and a selection of desserts. Mary Lou's Crystal Repair from Joliet, IL, will be on hand both days to repair your damaged heirlooms "while you wait". On Sunday, from 10am-3 pm, Munda & Associates, Auctioneers & Appraisers, Freeport, IL, will offer verbal appraisals of your small treasures for $5 per item. Please supply photos of large items. If a written appraisal is needed, discuss details with Munda & Associates.
Show times are Saturday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Sunday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Entry to the show is $6 per person, which is good for both days. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the day, both days of the show.
