Antique Show in Mullica Hill

First thing I want to do this morning is congratulate Carolyn Weatherman, view one of our artists in our American Artisan Store. Carol has been chosen by Early American Life magazine as one of this years winners for the directory of Traditional American Crafts and her work will be showcased in the latest edition of Early American Life magazine. I can not wait to get my magazine! Congratulations Carol!

I met Janet and Betty Saturday morning. The drive to the antique show in Mullica Hill was only about 30 minutes. We parked in an open field and walked up the hill where all the dealers were set up. I could not wait to get started looking. The show was more high end then I expected. I guess because it was in an open field, advice I expected it to be more like a flea market, but it wasn’t, a good majority of the dealers had some really wonderful things, so I was a happy camper.

It was exciting to see so many wonderful antiques, all in one place. I thought this painted jelly cupboard and tavern table were pretty wonderful. The legs are a bit unusual. I didn’t notice until just now as I was looking at this photo. It looks as though the legs were made taller by adding another piece of wood and kind of dovetailing it into leg.

You surely must know by now how much I love early cloth dolls, as well as good reproductions. I couldn’t pass these by without snapping a picture. In case you are wondering, I do ask permission from the dealers before I take any photos of their antiques.

I didn’t take as many photos as I would have liked, I was too busy looking around at everything. It’s kind of hard to do both, and still enjoy the show.

Some dealers were under roof, while others were set up in the field. The weather was warm and there were ominous dark clouds overhead all day, they were as dark as a cloud can get, but thankfully it never rained.

Anything painted blue always catches my eye. I loved this hanging cupboard.

Isn’t this a beautiful early milner’s head?

Loved this old blue chest too!

So those are all the photos. Wish I had more. It really was a fabulous show and I can’t wait to go back next year. It’s a show you just don’t want to miss.
Happy day
Carole

    Thanks for sharing such great pictures. The milliner’s head (and the case it’s displayed in) and blue chest are great! I have heard of that show, but have never been. Maybe I’ll have to plan a road trip next year!

    What wonderful photos! I am so sorry that I was out of the country for this show, it looks like I missed some amazing finds. I will definitely take your recommendation to make sure that I am there next year, though!
