Melvin Arion's Semiannual York Antiques Show Set For Feb. 1, 2, And 3

January 4, 2019

The Original 172nd Semiannual York Antiques Show and Sale is scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Feb. 1, 2, and 3, at Memorial Hall East, located within the York Fairgrounds Convention and Expo Center in downtown York, Pa. This popular event will feature 96 carefully screened exhibitors offering a truly impressive and outstanding variety of antiques.
According to show manager Melvin L. Arion, the merchandise will run the full gamut, including 18th and 19th century period American and English furniture, American country pieces in original paint, early china and glassware, 18th and 19th century silver, Chinese Export porcelain, antique toys, Oriental carpets, pewter, estate jewelry, quilts, English samplers, other textiles, early kitchen and fireplace accessories, Navajo rugs, Pueblo pottery, baskets, and Native American artifacts, historic American militaria, and much more. Arion does an exceptional job of making sure the scope of merchandise offered is as broad as possible so nearly any visitor can find a “new” treasure. In addition, all major credit cards will be accepted.
Because of York’s small turnover, visitors have the opportunity to really get to know the dealers from whom they’re buying. This time, there are no new exhibitors, the show having been filled by returning participants.
Visiting this show, considered by many to be one of the premier antiquing events in the mid-Atlantic region, is the perfect antidote to the mid-winter blahs and cabin fever.
Show hours both Friday and Saturday are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The building is smoke-free. Food will be available. Admission is $10 per person, $9 with this article or an ad.
For more information, call Arion at 302-542-3286 or during the show only at 717-718-1097.
