Okemo Antiques Show turns 16

Okemo DSCN0368.jpgIt’s nice to see shows hanging in there — especially shows that have been around for more than a decade and don’t show any sign of giving up … not only not giving up, but promising “to be the best ever.”

I’m talking about the

Okemo Antiques Show at the Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow, Vt.

Pat and Don Clegg of East Berlin, Pa., who promote and manage the show as Abbott House Associates, established their antiques business nearly three decades ago, specializing in American painted furniture and related items, early textiles, early lighting and wildfowl decoys. Okemo DSCN0371.jpgThey also exhibit at about 10 shows each year, one of which is the Okemo Antiques Show.

The Okemo Show is one of five shows that make up Vermont Antiques Week in early October each year.

Among the exhibitors at this 16th incarnation of the Okemo Antiques Show:  Jeff Cherry and Kass Hogan (Cherry
Gallery), Lewis Scranton, Tom and Bev Longacre, Mario Pollo, Chuck White and
Lynne Weaver.
