Antique Faire slated for next week at Strand


A ribbon cutting for the eighth annual Antique Faire planned for March 10, 11 and 12, 2011 at The Steand Theatre was announced Wednesday by Faire sponsor John Ford of Memory Junction Antique Co.

Reverend Drew Brewer of the Hohenwald United Methodist Church will present an invocation during the ribbon cutting March 10, 2011 at 9 a.m.

Antique dealers from across Tennessee and the southeast attend the annual event which features furniture, glassware, jewelry and other items provided by quality dealers.

The Strand is a historic movie theater that was lovingly restored three years ago and now plays host to art shows, concerts, special movie presentations and community theater,” Ford said. The Fords say that there is a special charm the old theater has that enhances the antiques on display.

“The theater is right on U.S. 412 at Maple Street and next door to us”, says John, “that means it is easy to find, park and shop both venues.”

Popular dealers from around the region will be back with their best items including Fenton, Depression glass, estate jewelry, Victorian and other antique furniture.

Sue Thompson, the “One Woman Road Show” will be available for appraisals on Saturday, March 12th, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., at Memory Junction on a per item fee basis.

“Whatever you treasure, you will find quality items to add to your collection,” John and his wife Jill said.

Admission is free for the three day event.

Shoppers at the 2010 Antiquie Faire browse jewelry and other collectibles. Planned for The Strand Theatre on March 10, 11 and 12, 2011, the Antique Faire is in its 8th year in Hohenwald.
