Jonathan Fisher House antiques show this weekend
by Tevlin Schuetz
The Jonathan Fisher House will host its seventh annual antiques show on Saturday, August 16, at the Blue Hill Fairgrounds.
The show features antique dealers from around New England.
Early buying starts at 8 a.m. and lasts until 9 a.m. General admission is from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Admission costs vary for the two entrance times.
Food will be available from local vendors, and porters will be on hand to assist with moving large items.
The antiques show raises money for the Jonathan Fisher House. Fisher was the first minister of the Blue Hill Congregational Church and built a house in 1814. That homestead is now a museum, and the entry and dealer rental fees for the antiques show provide funds for the museum.
Last year’s event drew “an enthusiastic crowd”, according to organizer Karen Wyatt, who said that “a lot of dealers [were] happy.”
The Blue Hill Fairgrounds are located at 233 Ellsworth Road/Route 172, less than a mile northeast of downtown Blue Hill. Parking is free.
This is a rain or shine outdoor event, so check the weather forecast and plan accordingly.
