)-- Late snow in April sent a shiver through Virginia. Now spring warms up with the 54th Shenandoah Antiques Expo, May 9 (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.) through Saturday, May 10 (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) at the Augusta Expo (I-64, Exit 91) in Fishersville, Va. Heritage Promotions
, based in Lynchburg, stages the show.
"Collectors show up by sunrise on Friday to wait for the gates to open at 9 a.m.," Raymond Stokes of Heritage Promotions said. "They comb exhibition halls, barns, and stalls—and hit gold—even off trucks in the parking lot."
This leading Mid-Atlantic show carries 18th- and 19th-century American and English period antiques plus a trove of vintage Americana, jewelry, silver, glassware, primitives, rugs and mid-century modern pieces. Intriguing collectibles include doorstops, stoneware, toys and Civil War memorabilia.
"More than 300 top dealers—from Florida to Maine—offer great prices," Stokes said. "For a two-day $10 pass or a $5 pass on Saturday plus free parking, you can search for a special piece that is a keeper."
