Antique dealers come to SWGA

March 6, 2003

Thomasville - They're back for another year of dealing. Antique lovers come from all over the nation to Thomasville to show off and sell items, but it takes a few days to get things just right.

Time is running out. Antique dealers are putting final touches on displays, getting ready for the 14th Annual Thomasville Antiques Show and Sale. Antique Dealer, James Labaugh, says, "The show is wonderful. We love doing this show! Thomasville is a wonderful place and people are really nice and they buy, what more can you ask for."

Labaugh drove his breakable antiques all the way from New York. He says, "It took two days."

Dealers are spending the day securing fragile items, cleaning the floor and adjusting the time on Antique clocks. David Lindquist says, "It takes the most time to make the time run."

And hopefully everyone will be ready on time. It's a lot of work, but these dealers, like Labaugh, say the lengthy trip to South Georgia is worth the trouble.

The show provides funding for children program's in Thomasville and Thomas County. The show starts Friday at the Thomasville Fairgrounds and ends Sunday. Last year, the event raised more than $52,000. Admission for three days is $7.
