Lebanon Antiques show is one of the oldest in Ohio

January 18, 2012 by  

The Lebanon Antiques show will be taking place at Bowman Primary School this weekend and will include antique dealers all over the country. The antique show is one of the oldest and most recognized in the state of Ohio. The event will take place on Saturday, January 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, January 22 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Over 55 antique dealers are expected to have incredible displays of items from the 18th through the 20th century. Antique furniture is always a highlight of the Lebanon Antique show, though many other items will be available, such as china, silver, quilts, glass, samplers, artwork and much more. A highlight of this show will be handmade game boards dating back to the early part of the 19th century. Tim Chambers’ unique and interesting display will include Parcheesi, checkers and others. Some of the boards are made by skilled craftsmen, while others are typical of ‘down on the farm’ creation.

Special events and activities within the community often use local print companies for such printing services as banner printing flyer printing and poster printing. Special shows like the Lebanon Antiques show may mean extra business for Lebanon printing companies.

Admission for the Lebanon Antique show in $8 and a $2 discount coupon can be obtained from the WCHS Museum website. Proceeds from the event will go to the Glendover Historic Mansion and the Warren County Historic Center.
