Antique sale in Genoa to benefit 150th anniversary

Staff reports

Genoa will once again be the location of the annual January Antique Show and Sale set for Jan. 13-14 at the historic Genoa Town Hall in the center of town. The hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

This show will partly benefit the Genoa Sesquicentennial Committee, which is raising funds for a celebration June 3-4. The Sesquicentennial Committee has received a matching funds grant from the Nevada Commission on Tourism, so more money needs to be raised.

The show will feature an array of fine dealers selling advertising collectibles, rare books, vintage firearms, primitives (including furniture), estate jewelry, oak and mahogany furniture, rugs, watches, country collectibles and Civil War memorabilia.

There will also be an appraisal clinic for those interested in finding out the value of their items. The charge for each item appraised will be $5, with no limit on the number of items. Appraisers include Ron Harris, a certified appraiser, and Martha Williams, owner of Antiques Plus in Genoa.

This year’s show has a great selection of door prizes donated by Carolyn Goff of Village Realty, Dragon Enterprises and Antiques Plus. Hot dogs and sodas will be available.

Parking is free and admission is only $1.
