Antiques will be going on in Greeneville

Ya gotta love a free antique show! Mark this Tennessee show on your calendars:

The Tourism Department of the Greene County
(Tennessee) Partnership has announced the date for the 5th annual Antique
Appraisal Fair and Antique Show. It will be held Feb. 20, 2010, at Greeneville High School on Tusculum Boulevard from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. Admission is FREE.

Local and regional antique shops will bring inventory to show and sell at the event. According to the press release, local museums and historical attractions will also be represented.

The event will feature certified appraisers that will assess the value
of antiques brought in by the public for a fee of $5 per piece.

“This event was very successful in 2009 with more than 850 items being
appraised and 4,500 in attendance. It is a great way to get the word
out about the Antique Trail brochure that tourism has created and the
proceeds from the event will go toward the printing and promotion of
the piece,” stated Tammy Kinser, Tourism Director for the Partnership.
“Antiquing is growing in popularity throughout the country and Greene
County has a wealth of wonderful, quaint antique shops. We have also
incorporated our great museums and historical attractions into the
event to make tourists and local residents aware of the treasures that
we have in our community.”

The Antique Appraisal Fair and Show won two prestigious awards in 2007
beginning with the Pinnacle Award for Peak Performance in Tourism by
the Northeast Tennessee Tourism Association and the Southeast Tourism
Society’s Top Twenty Event for February.
