Folsom hosts Spring Antique Fair

ProxyAntique enthusiasts from Northern and Central California look forward to the Folsom Historic District Association’s 48th Spring Antique Fair to be held Sunday, April 27, on Historic Sutter St. from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. (or come early and bring a flashlight), rain or shine.

Thousands of shoppers will fill the four-block historic district for this popular regional event featuring more than 150 booths with a wide range of antique and collectible merchandise: glass, china, pottery and porcelain; American and European furniture; country and primitives; repurposed and shabby chic; estate and vintage jewelry; watches and accessories; paper collectibles; prints and paintings; clothing and textiles; silver and silverplate; cast iron cookware; sports and movie memorabilia; and hand-crank phonographs and records.

Great food and live entertainment will be available throughout the four blocks of Sutter Street, along with the many great historic district businesses offering a wide selection of merchandise, food and services.

Local favorites Proxy, featuring hits from the ’60s to present will perform from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at Sutter and Decatur streets and Oscar Reynolds, Bolivian master flutist, will perform all day near Hampton’s.

Antique appraisals of family treasures or garage sale finds will be offered by local favorite appraiser Gary Cox, “The Antique Answer Man.” Cox is well known for his work with the Crocker Museum, KVIE’s Central Valley Chronicles and the Folsom History Museum.

Verbal appraisals are $10 per item or three for $25. Cox will be available as well to arrange for a formal appraisal of individual items or estates for insurance purposes or for sale. Appraisals are available from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. near the Folsom History Museum.

Collectors may park in the historic district’s multi-story parking garage (100 percent of money collected from $2 all day parking fee goes to local nonprofits) or for free in any historic district parking lots. Handicapped parking is available in the lot at Wool and Sutter (accessed from Leidesdorff and Wool near the chamber of commerce.) Shoppers may also take advantage of free Light Rail passes, available from participating historic district merchants compliments of Regional Transit.

Admission to Historic Folsom’s Antique Fair is free. Folsom’s Antique Fairs are promoted by the Folsom Historic District Association with assistance from Twin Bridges’ Antique Productions.
