The ninth annual Clark County Antique & Collectible Show will be held this year Sat. Jan. 18, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 19, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., at the Clark County Event Center, 17402 NE Delfel Rd., Ridgefield.
This event will feature 400 booths with vendors from all over the U.S., as well as two exhibits. The Clark County Historical Society will present their exhibit, “Vet Ink: A Military Inspired Tattoo Exhibit and Audio Piece” and Alan Soles will present a fun showing of his collection of vintage Pez dispensers.
At the Clark County Antique & Collectible Show, patrons can buy pop collectibles, vintage clothing, glassware, silverware, antique radios from the 1930s, turn-of-the-century furniture, movie memorabilia, collectible toys, sports memorabilia and more. If you’re a fan of collectible toys, this show is for you. Look for wind-up mechanical toys, porcelain dolls, Star Wars collectibles, Sci-Fi books and comics and much more. Toys are often what adults reminisce about when antique toys are mentioned. If you grew up in the 1970s, sitcoms and movies bring back similar memories. This show makes those childhood memories come to life, with displays and items for sale from vendors featuring antique toys, from play trucks, planes and trains to 1860s cast-iron toys, German and Japanese tin-toys and steel mechanical banks.
Also at the Antique & Collectible Show - for the more classic collector, be sure to look for sterling silver pieces, Tiffany glass, bronzes, paintings, restored vintage radios (both console and table top), Native American artifacts and of course toys from the 1880s to the 1960s and much more. Home decorators can find furniture in American, European, 1890s golden oak, mahogany and country styles. One of our star exhibitors is Zephyr Books from downtown Vancouver. Owner Kol Shaver covers every era and type of book, ranging from gorgeous volumes on Northwest History to Nancy Drew and the books that baby boomers remember with so much affection.
Admission is $6 and is good for both days, parking also costs $6 at the event center. Purchase tickets online at www.christinepalmer.net.
