    Enjoy a Taste of History

    Take an in-depth dive into history by attending the Annual Charleston Antique show. For lovers of history and lovers of antique collectibles, this annual event is literally a dream come true.

    Charleston is already a historically rich city, so hosting an antique show here simply makes the historical experience even more invigorating. People will come from across the world to enjoy these days of educational and exciting historical displays, and some people will even walk home with century-old antiques that, due to their historical significance, are considered almost priceless.

    During this annual event, European, American, and English antiques will be brought out and shown to the public. The lucky individuals who attend this event will be able to learn a lot about all these artifacts straight from the professionals.

    The antiques will be from the 17th century up until the early 20th century.

    Alongside the antiques and historical experts, there will also be renowned home decor designers present who will be able to advise individuals on how to make these antique items blend in nicely with modern home furnishings.

    For those who are coming from very far, or even for a resident of Charleston, staying at a historic bed and breakfast during the event can give this event a whole new level of historical significance. A historic bed and breakfast will help add that feeling of authenticity and make it easier to envision the time and place these artifacts were once the latest models in a person’s home.

    The antiques that will be shown include garden furniture, architectural elements, house furniture, art pieces, vintage jewelry, and silver.

    Attending the antique show is a chance for history lovers and antique lovers to get together and spend time conversing about what they enjoy most. Taking a look at all the antique pieces may also give a person an idea of how much their own furniture, silver or art pieces are worth that have been passed on for generations as family heirlooms.

    Staying at a historic bed and breakfast during the antique show in Charleston is a great way to add additional flavor to this already exciting time period. The annual antique show will be taking place between the 16-18th of April and tickets should be booked as soon as possible before they are all sold out. The tickets for this event cost only $5 per person and they just have to be bought one time to give access to the entire event. There is a preview party that will occur before the event, and tickets for that cost $200 per person.
