Antiques go on display at 56th annual show

Staff report
Lillian Gascoigne from Lillian’s Library and Antiques of Salisbury said the 56th Salisbury Antiques Show and Sale marks her 12th year participating.
“I’ve loved it for a long time,” Gascoigne said. “I grew up going to the antique show, and remember when it was at the old National Guard Armory.. It was magical.”
The show opens to the public today at the Salisbury Civic Center, 315 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.
Davis Cooke of the Old Sarum Gallery in Salisbury is participating in the show for the fourth time. “It’s one of those rare occasions in Salisbury,” he said. “You can get this many people in one room who like genuinely fine things, and I sell genuinely fine things. It’s fun.”
Anne Scott Clement, now the executive director of Waterworks, was in charge of the preview night in the past, and involved in the show for more than 20 years.
“This is a beautiful show,” Clement said. “It’s nice to walk around and talk with people.”
The 56th Salisbury Antiques Show and Sale goes from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. today. It is also open Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. A patrons party, with silent auction, was held Thursday.
The show supports the Rowan Museum, Utzman-Chambers House and the Old Stone House. This show has always been the Museum’s biggest fundraiser to plan.
