Manassas Antique Market

by Audra Blevins (05/26/08).

This past Saturday, May 24th, was the semi-annual Manassas Antique Market in the Harris Pavillion in Old Town Manassas, Virginia. The weather cooperated beautifully for this outdoor show. It was the first time that I had participated as a dealer in the show – and what a success.

Even before I finished setting up, people were browsing (there is a farmer’s market right beside the pavillion). I made several sales before the ‘official’ opening. I sold mainly limoges, chintz, linens and victorian glass. Most sales were under $50, but I had several sales $100+. One customer puchased 5 pieces of hand painted porcelain.

The other dealers were very pleasant – next to me was a warm, funny woman that dealt in vintage clothing, linens, and other curiosities. I learned new and interesting things talking to a dealer who specialized in elegant glass, and even purchased something for myself – a cut glass creamer and sugar set.

A perfect Saturday in May – enjoying friends and antiques (and even making some money). I’m looking forward to another show here in Manassas in October.
