The Mountainhome United Methodist Church antiques fair was recently held for its 55th year. The founder of the event is Maryann Miller, who started the shows to celebrate her love of antiques. There were around 25 vendors at the show, some of them new to the antiques fair and others returning for their 40th year.
Shirley Sagan is a resident of North Abington Township and has been a vendor at the Mountainhome United Methodist Church antiques show for 40 years this year. Sagan had been looking forward to the annual event, selling antique furniture at the show along with accessories. According to Miller, there was a variety of antiques sold at the show, with furniture, glassware, vintage clothing, jewellery, collectibles and primitive tools. Miller adds that a couple of the vendors have been attending the show for more than 35 years. However, some of the older vendors don’t sell at the show anymore and some new dealers attended the show this year.
Miller has been a collector of antiques all her life and she used to attend antiques shows with a friend. Her love of the shows inspired her to start her own. The show distances itself from flea markets by only selling antiques.
Miller enjoys collecting antiques and likes to find new items. In the UK, there are a number of reputable dealers in Preston and the surrounding area with a selection of fine antique furniture, including antique dining chairs . Collecting antique furniture is an enjoyable pastime for many people.
