With the winter antique shows in our area finished for the year, Valerie and I will have some time to shop for some goodies for our own collections and for our customer “Wants”.
With great anticipation we look forward to one of those must see events for antiquaries, the semi annual 30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction on Friday, April 25, 2014 – Saturday, April 26, 2014
Hundreds of treasures, from classic to kitschy, will be available to the highest bidder as the FRIENDS of the Wisconsin Historical Society hold this biennial auction to benefit restoration projects at Black Point Estate in Lake Geneva. The Wisconsin Antiques Dealers Association generously sponsors the 30th Star Benefit Antiques Auction. The event is held at Old World Wisconsin’s historic Clausing Barn.
Old World Wisconsin is an open-air museum located near Eagle, Wisconsin. Opened in 1976, the museum is owned and operated by the Wisconsin Historical Society. It portrays housing and the daily life of immigrants in 19th century Wisconsin.
We always enjoy this event, it offers an opportunity to see and learn from the great treasures offered for bids, talk to other like minded individuals, and benefit a great cause. And as dealers and collectors, we all are interested in preserving the past for future generations to see and understand the history we hope to preserve and pass on to the next generation of antique collectors.
