RHINEBECK, N.Y. — Barn Star Productions Antiques Shows is proud to announce the dates of their two Antiques Week in New Hampshire events, The Manchester Pickers Market Antiques Show, Aug. 9 featuring more than 90 “real pickers” and name-brand dealers and Mid*Week in Manchester Antiques Show, Aug. 11-12 with more than 100 top dealers in Americana, English and Canadian antiques.
More than 16 years ago, show manager Frank Gaglio is credited with starting Antiques Week In New Hampshire as a way to give antiques dealers a place to show and sell their wares in New England during August, traditionally the slowest month of the year.
“When our shows were announced, hundreds of dealers called to participate and Antiques Week in New Hampshire was born,” Gaglio said.
This August, Barn Star Shows will celebrate its 17th-year anniversary in the air-conditioned Furniture World Building, 1300 South Porter St., Manchester, N.H., located off Interstate Highway 293/101 at Exit 1, South Willow St.
