"THE ORIGINAL 172nd SEMI-ANNUAL YORK ANTIQUES SHOW & SALE” is scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 1, 2, and 3, 2019 at MEMORIAL HALL EAST, located within the YORK FAIRGROUNDS CONVENTION & EXPO CENTER in downtown York, PA. This extremely popular event will feature 96 carefully screened EXHIBITORS in room settings offering a truly impressive and outstanding variety of antiques. According to show manager Melvin L. Arion, the merchandise here will run the full gamut, including 18th and 19th century period American and English furniture, American country pieces in original paint, early china and glassware, 18th and 19th century silver, Chinese Export porcelain, antique toys, Oriental carpets, pewter, estate jewelry, quilts, English samplers, and other textiles, early kitchen and fireplace accessories, Navajo rugs, Pueblo pottery, baskets, and Native American artifacts, historic American militaria, and much more. Arion does an exceptional job of making sure the scope of merchandise offered is as broad as possible so nearly any visitor can find a “new” treasure! In addition, all major credit cards will be accepted.

Because of York’s small turnover, visitors have the opportunity to get to really know the dealers from whom they’re buying. This time, there are no new exhibitors, the show having been filled by returning participants.

Visiting this show, considered by many to be one of THE PREMIER antiquing events in the mid-Atlantic region, is the PERFECT antidote to the post-Holiday blues and mid-Winter blahs!

Show hours both Friday and Saturday are 10 A.M. to 6 P.M., and Sunday from 11 A.M. to 5 P.M. Parking is FREE. The building is smoke-free. Food will be available.

ADMISSION is $10/person, $9 with this article or an ad.

For more information call Arion at (302) 542-3286 or visit
During the show ONLY, the phone number is (717) 718-1097.


"Visitors to the 172nd York Antiques Show will be treated to seeing wonderful miniature pieces of furniture made exactly like their full-sized counterparts like this little desk that has a quarter leaning against the front to give an idea of scale."
