43rd Annual Antique, Vintage & Craft Show to be held July 21

Westlake Historical Society member Marge Emblom chairs the annual plant sale.

The Westlake Historical Society will host the 43rd annual Antique, Vintage & Craft show on Sunday, July 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the historic Clague House Museum located at 1371 Clague Road. The antique show is a summer tradition in Westlake, and is one of the longest running antique shows in the Cleveland area. The requested $3 donation per person for admission to the show has not changed in several years. The proceeds from this annual fundraiser help to cover the society's utility and insurance costs, as well as artifact acquisition and restoration costs.

The show features over 50 antique, vintage and craft dealers, a plant sale, free tours (beginning at noon) of the historic Clague House Museum, and a scrumptious snack bar presented by K&K Portage Market in Cleveland. Our popular silent auction returns this year and includes a retired Lladro, as well as vintage sports memorabilia. The silent auction proceeds go toward the purchase of specialized museum software for artifact cataloging and museum operation.

The Antique, Vintage & Craft show is a great way for the community to support their local history! The rain date is July 28. The Westlake Historical Society is raising money to cover the cost of a new Ohio Historical Marker approved for the historic Clague House Museum. The marker is expected to cost nearly $2,800 and the Society will gratefully accept donations toward the marker at the Antique, Vintage & Craft Show, or by contacting the historical society at 440-808-1961. The marker is scheduled to be officially dedicated on Oct. 12, 2013.
