Illinois’ CSADA show adopts ‘Blooming Antiques’ theme

ST. CHARLES, Ill. — Iconic perennial favorites as well as unexpected surprises will be represented in a variety of 17th, 18th, 19th and early-20th century antiques March 9-10, 2013, at the Spring Fox Valley Antiques Show and Sale in St. Charles, Ill. The show’s theme, “Blooming Antiques,” highlights the use of flowers as time-tested embellishments on furnishings and decorative accessories throughout the centuries.

At this semi-annual show, antiques gathered, researched and authenticated by 57 carefully chosen, invitation-only dealers from 14 states will be offered for sale indoors at the bright and spacious Kane County Fairgrounds’ Prairie Events Center. Catered lunch with comfortable seating is available, with free parking.

Show hours are Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, March 10, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Kane County Fairgrounds, 525 South Randall Road, St. Charles, IL 60174 (enter on Randall Road between Routes 38 and 64). A not-for-profit organization, admission of $8 benefits local historical and educational organizations.

Produced by the Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association, the show celebrates our heritage by collaborating with its sponsor, Garfield Farm Museum in LaFox, Ill. – the only surviving, historically intact Illinois farmstead being restored as a working 1840s living-history farm and inn.
