Inspired by the rich historical, architectural and cultural heritage of Charleston, the Charleston Antiques Show is a premier destination for collectors and enthusiasts who enjoy seeing and learning about incorporating antiques into modern-day decor. The Antiques Show will be held in Memminger Auditorium, 56 Beaufain St.
Spring in Charleston is the ideal season to see a showcase of English, European, and American period furnishings, decorative arts & fine art, architectural elements, garden furniture, vintage jewelry, and silver--all late 17th to 20th centuries.
Founded in 1670, Charleston quickly rose to prominence as the colonies’ most significant seaport, importing the finest in 18th and 19th century material culture. Today the city’s legacy of Continental, European and Asian influences can still be found in its alluring architecture and decorative arts. Because of this unique heritage, Charleston’s annual antiques show has attracted the attention of connoisseurs around the world.
Through the Show's educational and entertaining special events, collectors have a unique opportunity to purchase and learn more about everything from exquisite furniture and fine art to rare maps, jewelry, posters, prints and quilts.
