The 37th annual Camden-Rockport Historical Society Antiques Show and Sale will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 22 & 23, at the Camden Hills Regional High School.

This year’s show will will feature antiques dealers specializing in American and English furniture, antique silver, marine antiques, decoys, Staffordshire, Flow Blue, Americana, Folk Art, early hearth equipment, and more. This year’s show will have 40 dealers from 12 states selling antiques in every area of the antiques market. Returning dealers in early painted furniture and Americana from Maine include Martin Ferrick and Patricia Ann Breame. The Camden show is not, however, just a country furniture show. Exhibitors will also have formal antique furniture, antique and estate jewelry, fine glass and china, silver, early soft paste, pottery, brass, copper, and pewter, quilts and other textiles, antiquarian books and prints. Grantiques 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 Wilma’s Antiques and Westwind Antiques, both of Maine. Returning for another year, exhibitors in formal and country furniture, folk art, and country accessories include Bill Schwind, Heller-Washam Antiques, Louise Hardie, Billy Kelly, and PD Murohy Antiques, 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; John Hunt Marshall from Massachusetts bringing early Americana and furniture; and Hermitage Antiques, specializing in early tall clocks; and Ed and Anita Holden from Connecticut bringing 19th c. furnishings, folk art and early blown glass.. Returning from a distance are Stephen-Douglas Antiques from Vermont, and Ester Gilbert Antiques from Massachusetts bringing Marine antiques, barometers, and muskets, plus many others. These are only a few of this year’s exhibitors; we even have one traveling in from Oklahoma bringing fine art and Asian antiques and another from Kansas specializing in American Furniture and decorative accessories. There will also be others exhibiting wonderful prints, paintings, paper items and ephemera, silver, garden antiques and decorator items and more.

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