Local News

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – It’s an antique show for a great cause. “We have 25 dealers from all over the Midwest,” explained chairperson Debbie Ashmann. “They’ve brought all kinds of different things.”

Those things include glassware, collectibles, and furniture. If you’re looking for it, chances they have it.

The 64th annual Antiquarian Antique Show and Sale is happening this weekend in Green Bay.

It runs until 7 p.m. on Nov. 19 and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Nov. 20 at the Rock Garden Banquet Hall and Conference Center, 1951 Bond St., Green Bay.

“The proceeds from this event goes back into our community. We give grants to various historic entities for preservation work,” said Ashmann. “We have given out close to $1 million over our existence to help local historic entities.”

The non-profit group was founded in 1923 and works to keep past pieces of history alive.

And while the event this weekend does not have an appraiser on site, they do have someone who can help ID items for you. “He can research it and give you some history on it – if he can find it,” added Ashmann.

More than 25 dealers are here, from Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan, meaning there truly is something for everyone.
