Downtown Antiques Show returns June 12

New organizer Uncommon Market of Asheville is on board to run the  Hendersonville Antique & Vintage Show on Saturday, June 12. The show, celebrating its 30th anniversary, will be held in conjunction with LoveHendo Saturday, an open street activity with Main Street being closed to vehicular traffic to encourage shopping, dining and enjoying downtown.

“Robert and Rebecca Nicholas, long time dealers, antique lovers and owners of Splurge in the Asheville Rivers Arts District, have taken over management of this yearly event,” said Jamie Carpenter, Downtown Manager with the City of Hendersonville. “They were a natural fit to take on the management of the event, bringing a high level of experience with successful regional events, boasting the Asheville area’s largest curated, pop-up market for antiques, art, vintage decor, jewelry and beyond.”

This annual event attracts a variety of dealers from around our region and beyond to the streets and sidewalks of Main Street in Historic Downtown Hendersonville. Complementing the year-round presence of antique and home goods stores that call downtown home, customers will find a great variety of vintage, handmade, rustic, mid-century, industrial, up-cycle, collectibles, antiques, and other wares.

The 30th Annual Antique and Vintage Show will take place one day only, rain or shine, Saturday, June 12th from 8 am to 4 pm. Vendors will be on the sidewalks and Main Street from 1st Avenue through 6th Ave. Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic with the avenues remaining open.

Information for vendors can be found at
