The Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association (W.A.D.A) was formed in 1948, making it the oldest, continually-functioning state antiques organization in America. This not-for-profit group is dedicated to preserving Wisconsin’s heritage and to providing ongoing education for antiques dealers and the general public. This year’s show will feature the exhibit,

“Man’s Best Friend,” a display of antique dog-related items representing 30+ years of collectibles, including a most unusual painted tin dog umbrella stand.

The event will be held at the Waukesha County Expo Center’s Forum Building, from 11am – 9pm on Friday, and 10am – 5pm on Saturday.
