Thomasville- The annual Thomasville Antiques Show and Sale has thousands of items from days gone by that are sure to make your home look like a museum.
From fine china and jewelry to statues and clocks, the show has it all. People like Saint Augustine, Florida resident Joan Rounds are coming from all over to rekindle the days of old. "I am interested in history, where it has been, how old it is, why it ended up here," she says.
To be considered an antique in the United States, items have to be at least 150 years old. You won't find any contemporary furniture here. "I'm absolutely impressed with the paintings, and the old reproductions they have," says Rounds.
Show officials say this sale has been dubbed one of the top ones in the country. It was started by a local historical preservationist. "This was created by Margaret Neil Williams as the smallest and best antique shows in the country," says show manager Charlie Miller.
Antique doesn't necessarily mean expensive. And they bring a warmth into your home that you won't find elsewhere. "These items are only slightly more expensive than new furniture. They're infinitely better made, and you can pass them on to your children and grandchildren," says Miller.
Now that's satisfaction that keeps on giving, for both you and whoever inherits it in the next generation. "It's something that has to be beautiful in my house," says Rounds.
The show runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 5 on Sunday. Tickets are 10 dollars.
