If you were fortunate enough to be able to attend the Orillia Midsummer Antiques and Vintage Sale on July 30 you probably appreciated the gorgeous day and the lovely fairgrounds that the Antique Shows Canada event was held at.
There was a great selection of vendors set up at the show and the items there to choose from were diverse and interesting with something for just about every collector.
With food and entertainment it was easy to make a day of the visit and enjoy every moment of browsing the booths and the sunshine.
The Orillia show won’t be held next year, but the Gadsdens have exciting news that they will be back in beautiful Port Carling on the weekend of July 27 and 28, 2018.
We’ll keep you posted!
