Ohio Country Antique Show

Fifty Midwestern dealers will present a fall harvest of antique furnishings and decorative accessories when the Ohio Country Antique Show returns to the Roberts Centre on Saturday, Oct. 18. These biannual one-day sales have become an important resource for traditional country furnishings, Americana, Folk art and primitives – popular areas of collecting and decorating with timeless appeal. This “early American” format has attracted registered buyers from Georgia to Ontario and Maine to California.

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

The Ohio Country Antique Show will open to the public in the Roberts Centre’s Montgomery Room at 9 a.m. Saturday. There will be no preview or early buying period beforehand. Adult admission is $5 and parking is free. Show activities end at 4 p.m.

The Roberts Centre is located north of Wilmington at the intersection of U.S. 68 and Interstate 71 (Exit #50). The facility is less than an hour’s drive from either Cincinnati or Columbus, and about 45 minutes from Dayton. The complex includes a Holiday Inn for overnight guests and a contemporary bistro for dining and relaxation.
