The 7th annual Antiques at Elm Bank event is slated for Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10. More than 100 quality dealers will be on hand, featuring hundreds of sought after items at Greater Boston’s most magnificent outdoor summer antiques show.
Antiques from the 18th century to the mid-20th century will be available, including Federalist and Victorian furniture, European and Asian ceramics, china, sterling silver, art, estate jewelry, antique toys and much more. Everyone from the casual collector to the experienced investor will be able to find that precious treasure they have been searching for.
New to the show this year is an “Antiques Are Green” Children’s Festival of activities that is fun for the whole family. Dino the Dinosaur, symbol of the festival, reminds visitors that antiques are green, yet much newer than he is. On Sunday June 10 from 11am-1pm, entertainers will emphasize the theme of the event – namely that antiques are part of our past and part of our future. And, unlike dinosaurs that live on only in our imagination, antiques continue to provide function and enjoyment for years to come.
