MILLERSBURG -- Several new dealers and many returning merchandisers will have their wares on display, and a classic car show will make the day complete as Millersburg celebrates Antiques in the Alley on Saturday, May 13, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The car show will be held from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
"Antiques in the Alley is a unique outdoor antique show located in downtown Millersburg," said Caren Starr of Starlight Antiques. "Patrons are invited to shop along the streets, back doorways of stores and the alleys of our historic village. 2017 will mark the 13th year of this event and it is always well attended and enjoyed by all who participate."
At least one vendor will be on hand to help celebrate Mother's Day (May 14).
"Moreland Fruit Farm will be with us again this year with flowers and gardening containers," Starr said. "It's nice to have other small businesses come, like a home party business out of Holmesville, to add to the excitement, something new and different.
"We have a metal vendor who has been here since our very first show 13 years ago," she added. "We also have a returning local vendor on the courthouse lawn, Deb Ridenbaugh, who does a lot of repurposing. She has a good following."
Ridenbaugh takes pieces and parts of old material and makes shelves and other items such as garden decor.
"Recycling or repurposing has been done for years, but now it seems to be quite popular," Starr said. "We have a lot of vendors who make items out of old windows, wooden boxes and such. They're neat items that are kind of unique.
"And, we have lots of antiques that haven't been refurbished," she continued. "Here you will find many unique items such as furniture, garden accents, salvage items, primitives, folk art, art dcor and everything in between. We've expanded this year to include some craft vendors."
When shopping Antiques in the Alley, don't forget to visit the seven antiques/accent shops within walking distance.
Booth set-up is available by emailing email@example.com or calling 330-674-5111.
The Classic Car Show will be held in the parking lot of the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce (the old Commercial and Savings Bank) on the northwest corner of the square.
Jim Croskey says that if the weather's good, there should be at least 40 cars on hand.
"Our group meets every Saturday at Jitters," Croskey said. "We started out with four people and we've got 30 members now."
Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the cost is $10.
