The Western Reserve Academy Antiques Festival will be taking place for the very last time on 2nd September this year.
For 32 years, antiques dealers and collectors have joined together in Hudson, a city in the US state of Ohio, annually to celebrate the end of summer. Organisers have promised to make this year extra special to make the experience unforgettable. The co-chair of the festival, Mindy Covington, said that the merchandise and dealers this year would be exceptional.
Each year, some of the top antiques dealers turn up to the event, even as far away as South Carolina and Indiana. Antique furniture, jewellery, crystal, fine art and more can be discovered at the festival.
This year will feature a number of interesting pieces, including French compote dating back to the 19th Century and a lens polisher which was patented in 1895 and used by opticians. One antiques dealer who has been present at each of the festivals is Carroll Swope. She will be bringing a collection of antique furniture and some abstract art. This year, a raffle will take place, with the winner receiving a lady’s watch made in the 1920s, with 64 diamonds.
In addition to the antiques for sale, walking tours are held so that visitors can see the interior of some of the historical buildings in the location, which are generally closed to the public. Although the festival will be held for the last year, antique furniture and other items can be discovered at reputable dealers, including antique bookcases. Preston, in the UK, has established dealers who are happy to display items.
