At the Clark County Antique & Collectible Show patrons can buy pop collectibles, vintage clothing, glassware, silverware, antique radios from the 1930’s, turn-of-the-century furniture, movie memorabilia, collectible toys, sports memorabilia. If you’re a fan of collectible toys, this show is for you!  Look for wind-up mechanical toys, porcelain dolls, Star Wars collectibles, Sci-Fi books and comics and much more.  Toys are often what adults reminisce about when antique toys are mentioned.  If you grew up in the 1970’s –– sit-coms and movies bring back similar memories. This show makes those childhood memories come to life, with displays and items for sale from vendors featuring antique toys, from play trucks, planes and trains to 1860s cast-iron toys, German and Japanese tin-toys and steel mechanical banks.

 

Also at the Antique & Collectible Show - for the more classic collector, be sure to look for sterling silver pieces, Tiffany glass, bronzes, paintings, restored vintage radios (both console and table top), Native American artifacts and of course toys from the 1880’s to the 1960’s, and much more all at the Clark County Antique & Collectible Show.  Home decorators can find furniture in American, European, 1890s golden oak, mahogany and country styles. One of our star exhibitors is Zephyr Books from downtown Vancouver. Owner Kol Shaver covers every era and type of book, ranging from gorgeous volumes on N.W. History to Nancy Drew and the books that baby boomers remember with so much affection. More than 400 booths and hundreds of vendors will be selling making this the largest antique show in SW Washington

 

The Clark County is presenting their exhibit entitled ‘Road to Equality: the Struggle for Women’s Rights in the NW’

Washington Women gained and kept the right to vote in 1910. Oregon Women gained and kept the right to vote in 1912. On the National level women received the right to vote in 1920. From the victory of the 19th Amendment to the struggle to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, many women – and  men as well – worked their entire adult lives to secure women’s rights.  Today, in the Northwest and across the United States, women have made inroads into formerly male-dominated fields including politics and commerce, but it has been a long road and large disparities still remain.  The exhibit will challenge as well as educate and entertain as you learn more about some of the local heroines from pioneer times until today.
