With a planned outdoor event on Saturday and Sunday, April 10 and 11, the Memorial Hall Antique Fair is back on the schedule.
Produced by two sisters, Kristen Kestly and Jennifer Agnes under the business name Vintage Chix, they typically offer two events a year and are putting on the spring event this month.
The two-day Antique Fair on April 10 and 11 will be staged at the Veteran’s Memorial Hall located in the center of the little town of Tuolumne, approximately eight miles east of Sonora. The Antique Fair held outside in the park will be a much larger event, more vendors, more variety.
This is the 12th year for the event. The Antique Fair opens from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Vendors are ready to go at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning.
The Veteran’s Memorial Hall is a large depression-era building surrounded by a lovely shaded park and lots of parking. The building host lots of activities all year long and is cared for and treasured by the residents in the small community of Tuolumne.
Part of the success of this Antique Fair is the quality of merchandise offered by vendor, said the sisters. They have many customers who have happily returned each year to this event. The focus is on antique and vintage for this Antique Fair: they are only approving vendors who have truly vintage and antique wares, or artisan-crafted items made of true vintage bits. It can be fun, funky old stuff, shabby chic, primitives, rustic, or finer antiques.
All are welcome to attend the open air Antique Fair.
