antiques%20elm.jpg Antiques at Elm Bank in Wellesley, Mass., is a newbie for summer antiques shows in Greater Boston and may win first place for show-with-the-most-beautiful location, as it is held on the 36 acres of lush grounds at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society headquarters. Antiques at Elm Bank began four years ago, and has been ushered back by popular demand.

On July 25-26, over 100 dealers from 10 states will gather both inside and outside, showcasing thousands of sought after tiems including sterling, china, folk art, estate jewelry, Victorian furniture and European ceramics from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. Organizers of the event have screened dealers prior to the show, ensuring the casual collector to the experienced investor, the opportunity to browse and shop for quality antiques.

Admission is only $8 per person (16 and under free.) Hours are Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and just 15 minutes west of Boston. For more information visit online or call 781-862-4039 or visit online.
