WILMINGTON, Ohio – The charm and simplicity of early American country decor will fill the Montgomery exhibit hall when the Ohio Country Antique Show returns to the Roberts Centre Oct. 23. Now in its sixth season of semi-annual sessions, this specialized “traditional and primitives” presentation celebrates the region’s rural, small town past. Featuring 50 dealers from five states, Ohio Country is firmly established as an important resource for homeowners, decorators and collectors from the Midwest and beyond.

The show and sale’s reputation is built on a solid offering of authentic antique furniture in styles ranging from colonial era formal to 19th century farmhouse rustic. Colorful, original painted surfaces are an Ohio Country hallmark. Accessories include woodenwares and stoneware; quilts and coverlets; paintings, lithographs, and folk art; early advertising and ephemera; period toys and children’s items; plus, garden and architectural artifacts. All merchandise offered for sale is guaranteed as represented.

The Ohio Country Antique Show will open to the public at 9 a.m. Saturday. There will be no preview or early buying period beforehand. Show activities end at 4 p.m. The Roberts Centre is located north of Wilmington at the intersection of U.S. 68 and I-71 (exit #50).

Complete Ohio Country Antique Show information, including photos from past shows, detailed directions, other area lodging and a list of participating dealers is available at www.ohiocountry.com or from manager Bruce Metzger at 513-738-7256.

Future sessions of the Ohio Country Antique Show are scheduled for Saturday, April 2 and Saturday, Oct. 22, 2011. ?
