Connecticut Spring Antiques Show

The Connecticut Spring Antiques Show has been since 1973 the premier destination in The Constitution State for those interested in quality early American furniture, decorative arts, and other vintage and antique pieces

The annual Connecticut Spring Antiques Show has long been the premier destination in The Constitution State for those interested in quality early American furniture, decorative arts, and other vintage and antique pieces. The show, which has continuously attracted serious buyers, features over 50 exceptional dealers and educational talks, and is a great venue for novice collectors and visitors interested in learning about the outstanding merchandise offered. Most of the dealers have been exhibiting at the show for years and they are always willing to impart their expertise and passion for Americana.

The Connecticut Spring Antiques Show was founded in 1973, and even in its inception it was established as one of the country’s most important antiquing venues, especially for authentic American furniture.  The founders had a life-long passion for antiques and history, had their hands in many historical projects, and were involved in research work on the subject. More suited people for organizing an antique show would be hard to find, and it is easy to see how it started with and kept such an excellent reputation for displaying incredible antique pieces.

Through so many years of trading, the Connecticut Spring Antiques Show held onto its exacting standards and is recognized as one of the finest exhibitions of early American-made furniture and accessories today. It is all the more exciting since it is an annual show – avid collectors definitely record the dates for this fair long in advance. This event is also highly anticipated by the vendors themselves, who enjoy the chance to show off their wares, but also the possibility to add to their own collections at this rare shopping opportunity!

Of course, it is not just the furniture that blows visitors to the Connecticut Spring Antiques Show away. Decorative arts are also well represented, including fine art, folk art, pottery, porcelain, glass, silver, pewter, brass, iron, textiles, and other accessories. It is a very inspiring show to walk around and attracts many interior designers as well as collectors and of course, those that simply enjoy unique and beautiful things for the home.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
