Barn Star Productions is the brainchild of Frank Gaglio, a long-time antique dealer and collector with a lifelong passion for American antiques. Barn Star Productions was founded in 1994, with the goal of providing premier antique shows for the surrounding community and collectors from all over the country. These events transform host facilities into exciting arenas for antique professionals to display and sell in a hands-on, approachable atmosphere, and they continue to grow in popularity year after year.
Within a ten year period, the name Barn Star Productions has become synonymous with high quality, sophisticated presentation mixed with ease and accessibility. One of the keys to its success has been the choice of venues; all are spacious, welcoming, and easy for traders to set up and for shoppers to browse around. Another has been the philosophy of “show clustering”, where multiple events are held over the same week, in order to attract more collectors from further afield to make their travel much more fruitful. This unique approach has been a very strong feather in the Barn Star Productions’ cap.
While the main objective of Barn Star Productions is to promote and manage successful shows, it is also dedicated to establishing long-lasting relationships within its event communities. A few initiatives that have been successful include donations to local food banks and paper recycling programs. It has also worked with and financially supported many local charities, including the Children’s Crisis Treatment Center of Philadelphia and the Animal Rescue League of NH.
The range of antiques available for sale at the events organized by Barn Star Productions is all-encompassing. Wonderful furniture can be found, alongside chinaware, lighting fixtures, stamp and coin collections, bicycles, books, silverware, ornamental items, telephones, watches and clocks, jewelry, art work, war memorabilia, advertising memorabilia, and so much more. Anyone with a love of antiques should mark these events in their diary.
