The 14th-Annual Antique Treasures Show at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum has expanded to two days. The new show will have plenty of old treasures this year as more than a dozen antique and collectible dealers from as far away as Santa Fe will be here to show some of their merchandise. Most of the vendors are donating items to a silent auction that will continue over both days.
IVisitors can play "Stump the Curator" by bringing items in to see if our experts can identify them or their use. Some of the vendors will offer free, independent, informal appraisals of objects brought in by visitors.
Preservation also is an important part of the show, and professionals from the Museum’s staff and New Mexico State University will offer advice on how best to preserve your treasures.
The expanded show also will include several old-fashioned demonstrations, and all of the regular Museum offerings and exhibits are included in the regular admission -- $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and $3 for children 4 to 17.
