Brimming with more than 40 exhibitors hailing from neighboring states and European countries, The Ellis Boston Antiques Show rolls out rare and precious goods from the past to the delight of collectors and admirers alike. In addition to a sprawling array of delicate antique furniture pieces, rare maps, one-of-a-kind handcrafted jewelry, and last week's hamburgers, the show touts a complimentary lecture series complete with the wizened wisdom of a PBS Antiques Roadshow appraiser and the editor of the New England Antiques Journal. The "Essentials for the New Collector" panel introduces newbie collectors to the fast-paced world of antique wheeling and dealing with insider tips such as what to ask a dealer before buying a piece or how to exorcize a possessed antique porcelain doll.
Spanning Friday–Sunday, the antique show invites guests to peruse the fine wares at their leisure and indulge in tasty bistro fare as they practice surprised gasps in preparation for potential encounters with an ex-end table.
