The following was submitted by the Malden Historical Society:
The 27th Annual Antique Show hosted by the Malden Historical Society will be held on Saturday, March 2 from 10 am to 3 pm at St. Paul’s Parish Episcopal, 26 Washington Street, Malden.
Because of a downturn in the economy resulting from the 2007 recession, the antiques market has seen numbers of smaller, local shows discontinued. However, the Malden Show has been regularly presented during this time and been well attended and successful. Given the encouraging news about the rising economy, the Historical Society is looking forward to another successful show.
Show chairpersons Tony Dickinson and John King continue to recruit dealers who come from around our region to display an eclectic mix of merchandise for which the Show is known. Said Dickinson, “We pay attention to the changing interests and trends in the market and try to respond with new dealers and merchandise that appeal to all tastes at prices affordable to the budgets of our patrons.” He added, “Of course, we welcome our regulars, many of who have been with the Show since its beginning.”
New this year is Nancy Craig of Dover and Kay Baker from Amherst. We shall also have regulars such as Ann and Tom Lally of A & T Collectables, GianniSeppe Antiques, Flint House Books to name a few. While some dealers concentrate on specific items such as jewelry or books, other offer general mix of merchandise including old kitchen ware, vintage linens, small items of furniture, art, porcelain and silver.
Easily reached by public transportation, the Malden Historical Society Antique Show is a short walk from the MBTA Malden Center stop. Those who are driving should take Route 60 to Main Street from Route 93 and 99. From Main Street, turn left onto Pleasant Street and right onto Washington Street; follow signs to the show.
