Antique Show and Sale at Del Mar Fairgrounds April 17-19

For 54 years, Calendar Antique shows has proudly presented thousands of square feet of antiques, vintage collectibles and decorator items, from more than 125 premier antique dealers from all over California and the Western United States. These exhibitors will be selling the finest in antiques and collectibles from April 17-19 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, including all types of glass, pottery, paper ephemera, crystal, jewelry, art, silver, Americana, primitives, American and European furniture, vintage collectibles and decorator items, and much more — in short, everything from tin to Tiffany.

The identification of the antiques and collectibles brought in by customers will be handled by experienced appraisers, including Kyle Husfloen (editor of “The Antique Trader” and “Antique Trader Price Guides” and a well- known writer on antiques and collectibles). Assisting will be local appraisers Bill and Carol Kearney and Christine Saltzman of Cover Your Assets (
