The Lewes Historical Society will celebrate the 55th anniversary of its Outdoor Antiques and Vintage Show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 4, at its campus at 110 Shipcarpenter St., Lewes. General admission is $5 at the gate, and children under 12 enter free. Proceeds benefit the society and its educational and preservation programming. This event is sponsored by Schell Brothers.
High-quality antiques dealers participate in the show, featuring 18th century to early 20th century antiques. This year, unique vintage items will also be available for purchase. All pieces are authentic and represent a wide range of prices. There is something for every taste and every level of collecting sophistication at the show.
In addition to the traditional live music and delicious food available for purchase, Dogfish Head beer and Sonic Archaeology cocktails will be poured from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sonic Archaeology is a special Prohibition-era-inspired cocktail perfect for this vintage event.
"This Antiques and Vintage Show is a Lewes institution. Many families plan their vacation time at the beach around this event. The vendors and visitors comment that they enjoy the traditional feel of the event as well as the ambiance of an outdoor show," said Lewes Historical Society Executive Director Mike DiPaolo.
