LIBERTY Antique Festival Weekend

May 2nd, 2011

It was the perfect weekend for an outdoor antique show in Liberty, North Carolina.
Twice a year (April and September) about 400 dealers from more than 25 states set up their “goodies” or wares on the rolling hills of a 100 acre farm.  You will find truck loads of 18th, 19th and 20th century furniture and collectibles (folk art, early American toys, baskets,handmade iron utensils, quilts, decoys, etc.) 



 We are here. Isn’t is lovely?

Love this 18th century Southern Hunt Board.
$14,000 and change….


As you can see this vendor had exquisite things!
It was a perfect day!
This chocolate mold holds 70 pounds of chocolate.

Interesting piece of folk art.
This is a table made from bottle caps
then painted green.

19th Century Southern Sugar Chest
Notice the decorative inlay.
Sugar was so expensive in the early 1800’s that
those that could afford it kept in under lock and key.
This is a wonderful piece of Southern antiquity.

Walking Stick with snake…..mmmmm hummm

A great set of old andirons

Always on the lookout for bluebird china pieces.
This complete canister set is rare to find.

The next Liberty Antique Festival is 
September 23rd & 24th.
