Antique show benefits local youth

There’s no time like the present to visit the past. At least, that is what members of the Southern Oregon Antiques & Collectibles Club will tell you. Not only that but your chance is coming to the Medford Armory on March 16-17. The show is also a great time to visit old friends and make new ones. Avid collectors will prowl the isle ways searching for that one item that keeps eluding them—that one item that will fill out the valued collection.

The Medford show is the largest of all volunteer antique shows west of the Mississippi River. We here are fortunate that the show benefits the Jackson County Libraries, the Medford City Swim program and the Boy Scouts of America.

Dating and identifying heirlooms and treasures is just one of the functions of the show. Other show traditions include fine food, glass repair and a doll hospital operated by Life’s Little Treasures. The Library staff will have donated books on display that are available for check-out to those having a library card.

Travel and lodging information is available through Marcia Brown, P. O. Box 2314, White City, Or, 97503 or (541) 826-3039. Admission is $4, the identification booth is $3 per item. Hours are 9 a. m. until 6 p. m. on March 16 and 10 a. m. to 4 p. m. on March 17.
