Stonebird Vintage Collectibles and Antique Show is the Sandy Historical Societys latest event
Stonebird Vintage Collectibles and Antique Show makes its foray in Sandy 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday at Sandy High School's gymnasium and commons room, 17100 Bluff Road.
The new event, hosted by and benefiting the Sandy Historical Society, offers something for every budget, said event organizer Sandy Jordan.
Admission is $5 for adults -- $1 off with an event card from the Historical Society -- and $3.50 for seniors and children ages 6-12. Children younger than age 6 get in for free and tickets are available at the door.
Appraisers will be on site both days from 1-3 p.m. Attendees may bring up to three items for a $3-an-item verbal appraisal. Semiprecious or precious jewelry, firearms and edged weapons are excluded from event appraisals.
From 2:30-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Connie Warnock offers a free seminar on 'The how-to of Collecting' in the high school commons.
Another aspect of the show is the consignment museum where Ann Marie Amstad, another event organizer, said community members could bring two or three items to sell with 30 percent of proceeds going to the museum.
Those interested in the consignment part of the show may contact the museum this week and bring their items to the high school between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday. For exhibition and booth information, call Jordan at 503-668-3378.
Among the items the museum will sell at the show are records, Life magazine issues from the 1940s-1990s, framed historical photos and art, and old sheet music.
Raffle tickets for a two-night stay at a beach house are $1 each or $5 for six.
Jordan expects to see 500 people over the course of two days and said she's received strong community response.
The Historical Society hopes the show becomes an annual affair like its quilt show, with this event targeting a younger crowd. 'It will be exciting to see how the event evolves after this first attempt,' Amstad said.
