  • We always try to go to these shows. They are very interesting. The buildings are nice. There are a lot of dealers & all are friendly. Lots of items--some true antiques & some collectables. We usually find a treasure or two to bring home. You can spend $1 or $1000!! Trudy Bledsoe

  • We had a great time. Drove up from Nashville and was worth every mile! Great selection, prices were reasonable, and vendors were willing to negotiate. We will be back!! Leigh Anne Brown Harrell
