Making "History" at the Burlington Antique Show This Weekend

Big news! The producers of "American Pickers" will be filming a brand-new show for the History Channel THIS WEEKEND at the BURLINGTON ANTIQUE SHOW!! Too exciting. It should be a great time -- a sold-out show, full of dealers with their very best merchandise. You won't want to miss this one. Details are just a click away on the show sidebar. Make plans now to join us.

Our booth will be full of antique and cottage-style furniture, industrial finds, garden, containers, smalls, handmades, graphics and more. Plus we will be continuing our collage table sale and will feature the work of two new artists. And we have a fresh batch of the ever-popular hand-painted letters from Illinois artist Laura Simpson. So much good stuff!

We will also have our own little piece of Kentucky history for sale -- a parson's table used for years as a work desk by Louis Trauth Sr., founder of the popular Trauth Dairy in Newport, Ky. The historic Trauth plant is scheduled to cease production next month after more than 90 years in the dairy business. At the time of its sale to Dean Foods, Trauth Dairy was one of the oldest family-owned businesses in this part of Kentucky. The desk was purchased by Kris Kenz, my partner Joe's sister, while she worked in the plant offices. Come check it out. And wear something cute -- it may be time for your 15 minutes! See you Sunday. xo
