Step back in time at the Door County Antique Show, July 24 – 26, at Gibraltar High School in Fish Creek. The show is from 10 am to 5 pm each day. The 40th annual show has 35 select dealers who are excited to be in Door County to sell and visit with the locals and tourists.

The Sister Bay Lions Club has sponsored this event since 1975 to raise money and awareness for the Leader Dog for the Blind Program, which operates entirely on donations. Since 1939 the Lions Club has been providing dog guides to people who are blind and visually impaired. Maggie Weir directs this program in Door County and has arranged for leader dogs and their handlers to volunteer their time to be onsite during the show.

Collectors will find antiques and vintage collectables from the mid-1800s through the mid-19th century. There will also be a crystal and China repair booth onsite. Do not miss seeing the early furniture, paintings, ladies accessories, celluloid boxes, hatpins, vanity items, vintage clothing, and much more at the many diverse booths.

Admission, good for all three days, is $5 and free for 16 and below. For more information call 715.355.5144, visit antiqueshowsinwis.com, or email Ray Hanson at [email protected].
