Fine Art to Folk Art, Cashiers Benefit Antique Show

 The quilt to be raffled to raise money for a scholarship.

The largest antique show on the Plateau comes back for its 42nd season when the Annual Cashiers Benefit Antique Show opens its doors at Blue Ridge School, July 20, 21, and 22. 

Blue Ridge students, teacher volunteers and staff all work with the show staff to make this a memorable occasion to benefit both the school and those who come to support and enjoy the show each year. 

Sixty exhibitors from the U. S. and Great Britain will offer an incredible array of antiques.  Whether furnishing your mountain home, selecting a special gift or just indulging in a treat for yourself, the vendors of the 42nd Annual Cashiers Benefit Antique Show offer a wide variety of choices.  You’ll find fine art to folk art, rare music boxes and coins, cut glass, exquisite linens, and children’s toys from days gone by.  Back again this year is James Smith with Chips Away, who specializes in glass and crystal repair. 

Drawing for the vintage quilt door prize will be held at the end of the show on Sunday. Each paid attendee receives a card to fill out for the drawing.  A second quilt will be raffled for a scholarship for a deserving senior and tickets will be on sale at several locations as well as at the show. 

Described as a show to rival a fine New York show without New York prices, Cashiers Benefit Antique Show is designed so that everyone from novice to advanced collector can come and shop the entire weekend for just one ticket.  Catered food is offered each day by Kyle Shuey of Flip and Whip Comfort Foods and can be enjoyed under the Garden Dining Tent. 

Tickets are available at the door for a donation of $10, or $9 with any media ad.  Discounts cards are also available at select stores or by mail.  Wheelchairs will be available and volunteers will be happy to assist.  The Blue Ridge School is a smoke-free campus.  Pets are not allowed, but service animals are always welcome.
