Frank Gaglio and Barn Star Productions announce the 20th anniversary celebration of the Thursday Pickers Market Antiques Show, which follows the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association Show on Thursday, formerly held on Friday. As times change, so did the market, fulfilling collectors' requests to condense Antiques Week, allowing time to visit every show, while saving money to spend on antiques.

A fast-paced, one-day event with 50-plus "fresh to the week" dealers, Thursday Pickers Market provides a unique opportunity to fill your basket with treasures not found elsewhere, from real pickers and name brand dealers alike.

From 19th century miniature portraiture to lodge decorations, country and formal furniture, folk art, mid-century cool, fine art, garden accessories, trade signs, photography, rare toys and banks and Native American, the Thursday Pickers Market will surprise and inspire the collector, from novices to experts.

A fully appointed show with creative booth displays and all amenities, Pickers is introducing four special show features worth staying for, enjoying and shopping for five hours of discovery and fun:

"Pickers Attic Booth," with all items priced at $200 or less.

The first 100 customers bringing a N.H. Dealers Show Program will be entered into $250 gift certificate drawing to be spent at the show.

A free gourmet ice cream bar from 4 to 5 p.m.

A new book signing for "Step Right Up!" Classic American Target and Arcade Forms" by Richard and Valerie Tucker.

Air conditioning, a gourmet cafe, an on-site shipper, free parking, including handicap access, round out the event.

Come and see why our slogan is "End your week with a great antique!"
