BURTON, Ohio – Now celebrating its 49th year, the Burton Antiques Market returns to the Geauga County Fairgrounds June 12 for the first of this year’s semi-annual shows. The show is now under the management of Ohio natives and nationally known show promoters Kay and Bill Puchstein.
“We have had a tremendous response from the both the buyers and the dealers,” Kay Puchstein said. “With two months to go until the first show, we already have more dealers signed up for this year than were present at last year’s June show. Dozens of dealers who have not attended the show for years are signing up and coming back. It is going to be a very big show.”
Many of the returning vendors exhibited at the antiques show for more than 30 years – some for over 40 years – and a few for all 49 years.
The show starts at 8 a.m. June 12, for early buyers paying $20. The show opens for the general public at 10 with admission set for $6.
The Burton market is well know across the Midwest where vendors offer silver, fine china, jewelry, porcelains, glassware, textiles, paintings, Americana, garden furniture, decorative accessories, rugs, primitives and old tools. Most antiques dealers will be under tents and many more vendors will be located inside under the grandstand.
Burton is located just east of Cleveland at Ohio’s oldest county fairgrounds. The area around Burton is home to the largest Amish community in the world.
The year’s second show is planned for Sept. 25. ?
