MANCHESTER, N.H. – For more than six decades, the annual New Hampshire Antiques Show has upheld the tradition of bringing fine quality antiques to New England. This year’s show will feature 67 exhibitors from across the country with fresh-to-market items that include folk art, porcelain, country and formal furniture, paintings and prints, glassware, metalware, pottery and much more. The 66th annual New Hampshire Antiques Show is set for August 10-12 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Manchester.
The New Hampshire Antiques Show closes a week of antique shows known as Antiques Week in New Hampshire. This annual event brings together highly reputable dealers who, having a keen interest in educating visitors about antiques, set aside their best material for the August show. “These dealers know just what buyers are looking for and they save these treasures for this annual event. This is a year-long effort that begins just days after the show as they shop and search for this three-day event, all throughout the year,” said Tommy Thompson, president of the board of directors for the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association.
Seven new exhibitors will join the show in 2023. They include David Kurau of William R. & Teresa F. Kurau from Lempeter, Pennsylvania; Matthew Ehresman Antiques of Wadsworth, Ohio; Gemini Antiques Ltd. of Oldwick, New Jersey; John Hunt Marshall of Northampton, Massachusetts; Oliver Garland of Falmouth, Massachusetts; Paul Vandekar of Earle D. Vandekar of Knightsbridge, Inc. of Downington, Pennsylvania; and Brennan & Mouilleseaux Antiques and Design of Westchester County, New York.
The New Hampshire Antiques Show will be open Thursday, August 10 and Friday, August 11 from 10 am to 7 pm Eastern time, and Saturday, August 12 from 10 am to 4 pm Eastern time. Admission is $15 on Thursday and $10 on Friday and Saturday. Visitors under the age 30 who present proper ID are admitted free and, as always, attendees may enjoy free return visits after initial admission. For more information, please visit www.nhada.org.
