The 2015 annual Bucks County Antiques Dealers Association show, November 14 & 15

The Bucks County Antiques Dealers Association proudly presents the 69th annual Antiques Show on November 14 and 15. The event is at the Eagle Fire Hall on Rt. 202 & Sugan Road in New Hope, PA.  The times are Saturday, 10AM to 5PM and Sunday, 11AM to 4PM.

Returning to the show will be members from the Pennsylvania Antiques Appraisers Association on Sunday only from 12 to 3. They will give verbal appraisals at $10 per item on anything except jewelry, three item-limit per person.
BCADA President and Show Chairperson, Bill D’Anjolell, likes the Eagle Fire Hall due to the success of past BCADA shows here. This New Hope venue is easy to find with plenty of free parking.
The BCADA has been in existence since 1966 and is one of the few clubs of its kind that has produced a show almost every year. D’Anjolell loves this environment because “at an antiques show, every piece you see has a history or a story.  If you want answers, ask the dealer what they know about the item. Sometimes the story behind the object is worth the price of admission.”
The exhibitors are almost all BCADA members and a few select dealers including ‘C & C Antiques’ of Feasterville, PA who carry ceramics, linens, and rare tools; ‘ELtiques’ of Fogelsville, PA will exhibit fine ephemera and advertising; and ‘KT Antiques’ returns with her country furniture and primitives.

With so many shows ceasing to exist, there’s a reason that this one is still thriving. This show has quality, diversity, and affordability. For more information, visit the website at www.BCADAPA.org or call (215) 290-3140.
What’s nice about buying antiques is that they can easily blend in with your other cherished personal belongings as a decorative accent to the room. Adding an antique or vintage piece adds character, uniqueness, and a style that defines you. And of course, they last longer. See you at the show.
