Minocqua Antique Show
NEW OWNERS TAKE OVER THE LONG RUNNING SHOW
Northstar Collective is excited to announce their acquisition of the very successful Minocqua Antique Show. The show has been going for over 35 back to back years and has been a favorite of locals in trying to find that hard to find treasure.
Both Carol Zache and Judy Fuchsen of C & J Promotions are pleased to hand over the reins to their successful show to Nona Wilson the owner of Northstar. The previous owners will be enjoying the show for years to come with a relaxed and well deserved break from the hard work of show promoting. They both have a strong desire to remain connected to the community and you will be able to see them and their merchandise in future shows.
Northstar Collective will continue to have some of the wonderful dealers that the area has come to know and love. The show will also add a few new venues to the mix. Popular Americana items such as early advertising and store displays that have proven to be good investments and are considered the new artwork for your home. Repurposed antique furniture and early architectural items that are in demand in home decorating as well. More sporting, fishing and hunting items will also be introduced into the show. Formal and casual furniture, Folk & Fine Art, China, Silver, jewelry and Native American items will continue to be a part of the shows appeal. Nona adds that by diversifying the show we can appeal more to all ages creating a great experience for the whole family.
The show also benefits community charities such as scholarship funds, Special Olympics and Leyln Schmidt a local boy born with Anophthalmaia a condition that renders you blind at birth. Lelyn is still a toddler but the hope is to save up enough to buy him a seeing eye dog. We are glad to be a part of these endeavors for the community and the more successful the show becomes the more we can benefit some of these causes.
Northstar Collective also promotes a show in Oshkosh Wisconsin called the Antique Sporting and Advertising Show. It is held the first Friday and Sat in February at the Sunnyview Expo Center. That show is approaching 100 dealers and is well attended according to Nona.
Wilson encourages the public to bring in their treasures to sell and will continue to look for quality dealers for all their shows.
The upcoming show in Minocqua will be on Saturday, September 3rd & Sunday the 4th. The doors open at 9 am and close at 4pm both days. The event is held at Lakeland High School, 1 block west of Jct. Hwy.51 & Hwy 70 West. Admission is $5.00 and for the ages 13 and under are free. There will be a Food concession on site.
