This year’s show includes over 5,000 square feet of fine art and antiques with more than 20 vendors from eight different states. According to the event organizers, “This is one show you don’t want to miss. Here you will find exclusive items including mid-19th to mid-20th Century American and European paintings, antique clocks and music boxes, period furniture, vintage linens and textiles, maps, estate jewelry, silver, equestrian and sporting pieces, rugs, porcelain, pottery, lighting fixtures and more.” For a complete list of item categories and vendors, visit blowingrockmuseum.org.
