OUR HISTORY

Historic Detail of Tobacco Warehouse Show and Sale

A Rose Brothers Enterprise

The Rose family started Lexington’s Antique and Collectible Show and Sale in the spring of 1985.  Starting as a small show with only thirty dealers, the sale took place in an old tobacco warehouse at 528 Angliana Avenue.

Originally built in the 1930’s, the tobacco warehouse was used throughout the years bringing tobacco growers and cigarette producers together.  The “tobacco market” as it was called, typically ran from November thru February.  The antique show operated after the “tobacco market” closed for the season.  Held the second weekend April thru October, the small show grew to over 200 dealers from all over the country.

The Tradition Continues

As Kentucky’s tobacco industry changed the four-acre warehouse was torn down but the tradition continues in a new location.   Now located in the historic Athens Boonesboro Schoolhouse, the monthly show is a truly exciting adventure with unexpected finds from Colonial period antiques to Depression era vintage.  Mid-century modern, fine art, pottery, architectural finds, quilts, textiles, oriental rugs, fashion and much more.

A beautiful historic setting, easy parking and an expansive, organized space.  Open the second full weekend of every month year- round with over 70 carefully screened dealers, the Tradition Continues now in our 37th Year.
