SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - The 65th Rowan Museum Antiques Show will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 9-11, at the Event Center at West End Plaza, 1935 West Jake Alexander Blvd. in Salisbury.

Believed to be the oldest annual antiques show in NC., this 65th anniversary event will showcase 23 dealers from Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, NC, SC, and Georgia.

Ticket buyers are encouraged to bring broken and chipped glass and porcelains for repair and 19th and 20th art for appraisal.

Chips Away can provide on-site crystal and glass repair; Jackson Antiques can repair porcelain, and Old Sarum Gallery will appraise art . In addition, the Rowan Museum will offer multiple items from local estates in a Silent Auction.

Lunch will be available each day from 11:00-2:00 featuring the famous Antiques Show soup and chicken salad, as well as sandwiches, homemade desserts, and drinks.

The Antiques Show is Rowan Museum’s largest fundraiser, and all proceeds help maintain and provide programming for five historic properties - the 1766 Old Stone House, the 1815 Utzman Chambers House, the 1850s Courthouse, the 1903 China Grove Roller Mill, and property on East Bank Street adjacent to the Confederate Prison site.

Over 6,000 school children participate in on-site educational experiences at one of the Museum properties each year.
