The historical society organizes an exhibition of collectibles and antiques

The Lewes Historical Society’s Coastal Collectibles & Antiques Show will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, August 20, rain or shine.

Attendees will be surrounded by ancient treasures and hard-to-find collectibles from all eras. The merchants chosen to participate in the show offer a wide range of items from their varied collections.

Many collectors’ associations from the Mid-Atlantic region also attend the show. These groups represent members whose passions range from antique tools to model trains to dolls and toys, to name a few.

Reverend Charles E. Covington will be on hand to demonstrate the fascinating art of turning corn husks into chair seats, baskets and other woven objects.

Throughout the day, the air will be filled with the sound of music. In the morning, DJ45 will spin tunes from its impressive 45 rpm collections.

On-site food vendors include SmashMouth Smash Burgers serving the main course and Kona Ice providing the perfect complement. The folks at Carmella’s of Scranton will be offering their famous cannoli and Italian pastries.

Festival admission provides access to all LHS properties and museums, including the Ryves Holt House Gift Shop and Information Center, the Cannonball House Maritime Museum, Lewes American Lifeboat Station, the Museum of Lewes History and the LHS Antique Store.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the educational and preservation programs of the Lewes Historical Society.
