Saline Area Historical Society to hold annual Antique Show

By Ann Dwyer

The Saline Area Historical Society will bring their 26th Annual Antique Show to Liberty School (old Saline Middle School) on Saturday.

While "antiquing" has become synonymous with settling down or yuppie-ness (also for throwing flour on a sleeping person, according to Urban Dictionary), it can actually be quite exciting. After all, it combines shopping with history and the chance of finding something valuable. It also keeps your house from looking like a Crate & Barrel catalog. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

But this is more than a chance to find a hidden treasure; this event is a fundraiser for the Saline Area Historical Society. Profits support museums and events throughout the year.

Each show presents a good variety of juried dealers, who offer a wide variety of quality antiques. This year, there will be more than thirty-five dealers. Items such furniture, folk art, quilts, pottery, vintage clothing, linens, jewelry and much more will be on sale. Even if you're not looking for anything in particular, it's always fun to poke around and find things you never knew existed.

9 a.m.-4 p.m. $3 admission. There will be food for sale. Call 734-944-0713 for more information. Liberty School is located at 7265 N. Ann Arbor St., Saline.

Ah yes, the Saline show. Where dealers buy things at the Allegan and Midland shows and sell them to the Ann Arbor area effete snobs for 10 to 20 times the money. Oh what a beautiful whatever-it-is from an antebellum shoppe ! I've just got to have it. Capitalism at its finest.
