CANTERBURY, N.H. – The New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association (NHADA) has enlisted promoter Nan Gurley to organize a new fall show under the group’s auspices. The Canterbury Shaker Village Antiques Show, to be held Sunday, Sept. 27, 2009, will feature 125 NHADA member dealers in a beautiful 20-acre hayfield setting. Most exhibitors will be selling under tents.
The Canterbury Shaker Village is a national historic landmark and museum in the town of Canterbury. The complex features 25 restored and four reconstructed Shaker buildings on a 694-acre site that includes gardens, fields, ponds and forests. Although located in the picturesque New Hampshire countryside, the village is only a few miles’ drive from the state’s capital city of Concord, and is easily accessible via two interstate freeways
Admission includes entrance to both the antiques show and the Shaker Village compound. Excellent food will be served by Shaker Village chefs.
“I have no doubt that this new show will be an unqualified success,” said Nan Gurley. “All of the right elements are in place – a great date, a spectacular location, and the best dealers.”
The New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association is an organization of nearly 300 members that was founded in the early 1950s. The group includes many of the trade’s top dealers of Americana, primitives, early American furniture and folk art. Visit the NHADA’s Web site at www.nhada.org.
