WATERLOO, Iowa – Main Street Waterloo is seeking dealers for a new antique and collectors show, entitled “At the Crossing Antique Fair.” The show is scheduled to take place Oct. 16, 2010, at the 5 Sullivan Brothers Convention Center.

As part of the antique fair, Sherryl Newton, GIA Graduate Gemologist and 20+-year doll collector, will be appraising your jewelry and dolls for only $5 per item. “I’m a trained Gemologist, and my family owned jewelry stores all over Iowa for over 60 years. I have also collected dolls since the early ‘80s,” says Newton.

Contracts for participating at the show can be downloaded at www.mainstreetwaterloo.org or by contacting the Main Street Waterloo office (329 E. 4th Street) at 319-291-2038. Proceeds from the antique fair will help support Main Street Waterloo, a private-public partnership dedicated to the revitalization of the city’s downtown center. Waterloo became a Main Street community in 1996.

Main Street Waterloo is an affiliate of the Main Street Iowa program, using the National Main Street Center’s “Four Point Approach” to downtown revitalization. The program stresses a public-private partnership and is utilized by nearly 2,000 communities of all sizes in 42 states. Using this approach, 33 Iowa downtowns are working to strengthen the overall social and economic health of their central business districts, and re-establish their commercial districts as the community focal point and center of activity. ?
