The 33rd annual Camden-Rockport Historical Society Antiques Show and Sale will take place Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21, at Camden Hills Regional High School. Started and promoted all these years by John and Liz DeSimone of Goosefare Antiques & Promotions, the Camden show has been the premier antiques show in Maine for early 18th, 19th, and early 20th century furniture, Americana and accessories.

This year’s show will be another great show with antiques dealers specializing in American and English furniture, antique silver, marine antiques, decoys, sporting antiques, and shorebirds, Staffordshire, Flow Blue, Americana, and early hearth equipment. This year’s show will have 46 booths from 12 states selling antiques in every area of the antiques market.

Returning dealers in early painted furniture and Americana from Maine include Patricia Stauble Antiques, Patricia Ann Breame and Ship Island Antiques.

The Camden show is not, however, just a country furniture show. Exhibitors will also have antique & estate jewelry, fine glass and china, silver, early soft paste, pottery, brass, copper and pewter, quilts and other textiles, antiquarian books and prints. Grantiques and Heritage Antiques will have large displays of antique and estate jewelry, and silver. A significant amount of fine glass and china can be found in the booths of Stonewall Farm Antiques and Wilma’s Antiques, both from Maine.

Returning for another year, exhibitors in formal and country furniture, folk art, and country accessories include Dennis Raleigh, Bill Quinn, Martin Ferrick and The Old Barn Annex, all from Maine. Rounding out the show will be returning exhibitors Witts End Antiques from New York who will be bringing 18th and 19th century furniture and Hudson River Valley Paintings; Hermitage Antiques, specializing in early tall clocks; and R. C. Bowen with English smalls. Returning from a distance are Wenham Cross Antiques from Massachusetts, Stephen-Douglas Antiques from Vermont, Period Antiques LLC from Indiana, and Colleen Kinloch from Maryland all bringing fine antiques and Americana. These are only a few of the 46 dealers; there will also be others exhibiting prints, paintings, Oriental rugs, silver, garden antiques and decorator items.

Visitors will find the show well-rounded with an exciting variety of antiques in all price ranges and with the quality that the Camden show patrons have come to expect over the years.

The Camden-Rockport Historical Society uses the proceeds from the show to help fund their many local projects. Among them is The Conway House, the Society’s Museum located on Route 1 south of the village, where visitors are welcome from Mondays to Fridays. The Antiques Show will again be catered with lunch and snacks available. Adult admission is $7 each ($6 with the ad appearing in the paper) and children younger than 12 are free when accompanied by an adult.

Show hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call Goosefare at 800-641-6908.
