WAUKESHA, Wis. — It will be a one-stop shop for collectors of antiques Oct. 4-5 during the Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association Fall Show.
The show, which includes 58 dealers from seven different Midwestern states, will be held
in the Waukesha Expo Center Forum Building, 1000 Northview Rd., Waukesha, Wis. This marks the 62nd year of the W.A.D.A fall show — which is well known for the authenticity, condition and rarity of the antiques displayed, and the level of expertise and professionalism of the exhibitors.
Two special features include a free educational exhibit “Antique Firefighting Memorabilia,” reflecting on the Peshtigo and Chicago fires of October 1871.
Also, a representative from the Antiques and Collectibles National Association of Davidson, N.C., will be on hand to answer questions about insuring antiques.
The Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association, formed in 1948, is the oldest, continually-functioning state antiques organization in the United States.
The W.A.D.A Fall Show hours are Friday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. In addition to the usual food concessions, there will be a fish fry on Friday. Admission to the show is $6, which funds scholarships for high school students, as well as grants to Wisconsin historic and heritage groups.
