In addition, attendees have the opportunity to take advantage of on-site crystal repair, provided by Mary Lou Gates, and free identification of antiques and collectibles.

In fact, to date more than $600,000 has been donated to preserve and restore culture artifacts around the region.

However, the commitment to displaying quality merchandise and offering helpful education to collectors and dealers remains at the core of the Antiquarian Society’s efforts.

The show hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 29, and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 30. The cost of admission is $6. For more information, visit www.antiquariansocietygbdp.org or call 920-366-6895.
