Chester County Historical Society’s Much-Anticipated Antiques Show Set for April 7-9


Tickets are now on sale for the 35th Annual Chester County Antiques Show, a benefit for the Chester County Historical Society, scheduled for April 7-9 at the Phelps School in Malvern.

Tying into spring, the theme of this year’s event is Botany in Chester County.

“With 49 exceptional exhibitors representing 12 states, the CCHS Antiques Show is a must-see,” said show manager Wesley T. Sessa.

Beginning with a spectacular Preview Party on Friday, April 7 – early admission at 5 PM is $200 and regular admission at 6 PM is $140 – guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a light buffet, while being among the first to enjoy and purchase from the exquisite displays of a wide range of antiques.

Preview Party tickets include general admission all weekend. General admission is $15 and includes a show catalog and free parking. General admission begins Saturday, April 8 from 10 AM-6 PM and runs through Sunday, April 9 from 11 AM-5 PM.

“The Chester County Historical Society is excited to host our 35th Annual Chester County Antiques Show, and for the 11th year, this much-anticipated event is sponsored by our friends at PECO,” said CCHS president Elizabeth Laurent. “We are pleased to return to the beautiful setting of the Phelps School.

“Whether you are interested in purchasing or simply exploring an outstanding collection of antiques, the 2017 Chester County Antiques Show is an amazing event for people to experience, enjoy, and find inspiration in beautiful objects of all kinds.”
