About the Show
The Thomasville Antiques Show Committee is pleased to present thirty of the country’s most prestigious dealers who will offer the opportunity to view and purchase exquisite antiques. The dealers will showcase antique furniture, paintings, rugs, jewelry, tableware, accessories and collectibles to suit the taste of the casual and the serious collector.
A gala black tie evening will kick-off the 2013 Thomasville Antiques Show & Sale with a benefactors preview, giving patrons the earliest opportunity to view and shop the dealer booths for gifts and personal treasures while enjoying an elegant seated gourmet dinner.
The TASF Board is indebted to all of our sponsors, show volunteers and supporters. This year, rather than dedicating the show to any one individual, we would like to acknowledge the contributions of all our previous show co-chairs spanning the last twenty-three years. Without their leadership and commitment the show would not be the success it has become.
