New Bern Preservation Foundation annual Antique Show

Come check it out, and support this great cause or bring your treasures to be evaluated who knows.....

The New Bern Preservation Foundation will hold its annual Antique Show at the New Riverfront Convention Center Feb. 11 to 13 2011. More than 45 professional dealers will offer 18th through 20th century furniture, decorative items and memorabilia — literally something for everyone of every age. Come enjoy the largest antique show east of Raleigh featuring a variety of antique dealers selling quality goods such as furniture, linens, silver, toys, glassware and much more! Daily verbal evaluations of your treasures are also available. On Feb. 12 and 13 2011, identifiers will be available to evaluate personal items brought to the show. Tickets are $7.50 at the door and good for admission each of the three days. The preservation group was chartered in August of 1972 and began saving buildings and upgrading neighborhoods. A small group of volunteers worked alone until 1981 when they hired the first professional executive director. Nearly 60 structures have been directly saved by the foundation.
