Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association (CSADA)
Fifteen states. Fifty-five dealers. Four centuries of art. The Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association (CSADA) makes its mission preserving and passing on American artifacts—some older even than the country itself. It holds two shows a year: the Spring Fox Valley Antiques Show, founded in 1957, and the Fall Fox Valley Antiques Show, founded in 1974. Visitors to either of these expos will find such goods as 19th- and 20th-century paintings, American country furniture, antique firearms and edged weapons, and industrial artifacts.
