Newport Antiques Show
Since 2007, the Newport Antiques Show has culled some of the most elegant and important Americana antiques for its massive annual shows. Show manager Diana H. Bittel, a distinguished antiques dealer in her own right, carefully selects the dealers to be featured, eventually inviting a lucky 40 to showcase their wares. With paintings, furniture, folk art, jewelry, and other one-of-a-kind pieces, antiques aficionados are sure to find an item that complements their home decor, appeals to their sense of history, or gives them a convenient shortcut to Narnia. The show also gives back by benefiting the Newport Historical Society and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County.
