What a treat! We went to the Burton Antiques Market and experienced the fun of wandering around looking for antiques and collectibles. It was a perfect day. There were more than 300 dealers and although we didn’t get there in the time for the early bird, we were told there was a long line waiting to get into the show, which was both indoors and out. There was lots of furniture — especially country and solid, old wooden pieces. We also enjoyed browsing through costume and silver jewelry, household goods and decorative pieces. We didn’t see many toys, old advertising signs or mid-century items. Terry and I want to share some of the treasures that caught our attention.

Note: The Burton Antiques Market is twice a year —June and September. The next show is September 25, 2021.
