Looking for something memorable for a special Christmas gift this year? Or is there someone on your list who is a bit tough to buy for, but appreciates fine craftsmanship and items with a “history,” perhaps some character? If so – or if you’re just looking for something unique to do over the weekend – then be sure to stop by the Christmas in Smithfield Antiques Show!
This is not your ordinary antique show. The show runs for three days at the Smithfield Center and features 19 highly-qualified and respected vendors displaying the very best of their collections. Plus, your $5 admission goes toward one of the town’s historic treasures – the 1750 Isle of Wight Courthouse.
And join us for some special Friday morning programs to be allowed entrance to the Antiques Show one hour earlier than the general public!
You can purchase tickets to the Antiques Show at ChristmasInSmithfield.com or at the Smithfield Visitor Center (319 Main Street in downtown Smithfield). Tickets will also be available at the door the days of the show. Further information is available online or by calling 757.357.5182.
Christmas in Smithfield also features historic homes tours of six to the town’s beauties. Details and tickets at ChristmasInSmithfield.com.
