47th Annual Houston Museum Antiques Show & Sale
For the last 46 years, the Houston Museum’s Antiques show has been a staple event in the Chattanooga antiques community. The weekend of February 26, 27 & 28 marks our 47th annual Antiques show at Stratton Hall. There will be vendors, presentations, and more! All proceeds for this event go to the Houston Museum. COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place to keep our guests and partners safe. The show will also once again hold an Appraisal Fair on the 26th and 27th with our friends from Clements Auctions. Pre-registration is required. Of special interest for local collectors, there will be a presentation on Sand Mountain Pottery, by Danny Maltbie on Saturday Feb. 27 at 1 p.m. Come and listen to Danny as he weaves a tale about the creation and history of this beautiful and highly collectible pottery made just down the road in Alabama, not far from Chattanooga.
“We are thrilled to present our 47th, uninterrupted show for our friends here in town and around the region. This year’s show has not been without its challenges but we are determined to make it special and safe for all who can attend.” says Amy Autenreith, Executive Director for the Houston Museum.
