Miss Morgan's Milkweed Antiques To Host Antique And Artisan Show On Oct. 6 And 7

Special 16th Anniversary Celebration Will Take Place At Lebanon Valley Expo Center

April 28, 2023

She rides again! The 16th anniversary celebration of Miss Morgan's Milkweed Antiques Antique and Artisan Show will be held on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 6 and 7, at the Lebanon Valley Expo Center complex, 80 Rocherty Road, Lebanon, Pa. Show hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for day one and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. day two. Gas up the truck, get some seasonal garb, fluff up a fancy hat and stroll among the best pickers together at one unique antique and artisan event. As in the past, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, attendees are asked to wear a touch of pink. Donations will go to Wellspan Sechler Family Cancer Center in Lebanon, Pa. This fall show is managed by the owners of Miss Morgan's Milkweed Antiques, Diane Gibble and Troy Tranquillo. The two started the show in the backyard of their former shop in Bethel, Pa., with just a few tents full of vendors and eager shoppers who came dressed in witch hats and costumes to celebrate the event. Each year, the show grew bigger and better, and with that came bigger and better venues. This will be the fifth year that they have brought their show to the Lebanon Valley Expo Center. All facility overhead doors (and there are many) will be open to transform the facility into an open air show, so please dress accordingly. The show will go on rain or shine. With over 75,000 square-feet indoors and 70-plus acres outside, be sure to wear good walking shoes. What makes this fall antique and artisan show so successful? Well, it's the talented and active dealers and craftspeople, of course. And this year's line-up of quality vendors will not disappoint. The slogan, "Bring a truck," isn't a joke. Shoppers will need one to haul off their goods. Each year, the line-up of vendors grows, and this year is no different. This is part antiques show and part crafts/artisan show. Many well-known talented artisans will be on-site selling their wares, and many antiques dealers bring traditional antiques to this show. No event is complete without great food, and there will be a variety of delicious foods from which to choose, including the in-house food vendor. Top it all off with a Harrisburg Farm Show Milkshake made by ELCO Future Farmers of America (FFA). Lebanon Valley Craft Brewery, which began 160 years ago, has reopened its doors in its original building and will be on-site offering seasonal brews. Also, the popular Island Thyme Grill food truck will offer its famous jerk chicken and other popular beach-themed eats. Another food vendor will be Pork Dude BBQ and its famous homemade apple slaw. "We are amazed at the way the show has grown over the years and so grateful to have so many talented pickers and artisans set up at the show. If it wasn't for our loyal customers, vendors, and family and friends, none of this would ever happen. We are grateful to each and every one of them," stated Gibble. Again this year is the ability to pre-purchase show tickets online and enter the show one hour early. To learn more, attendees may visit www.MorgansMilkweedAntiques.com. Tickets will be available at the door. Choose from a $10 early buyer two-day pass or the $5 Saturday pass. There is plenty of free parking. Children 12 and under attend free of charge. Bring a truck, and be prepared for an excellent weekend of great food, great fun, and even greater picking! For further information, call 484-256-7610.
