Crossroads at Crabapple Festival to take place Oct. 2.

100-plus antique dealers and juried artists on hand.

MILTON, GA., Sept. 15, 2010 - It's that time of year again to stroll through beautiful, historic Crabapple on a cool fall day, taking in the wares of more than 100 antique dealers and juried artists from six states.

We're talking of course about the Crossroads at Crabapple Antiques and Art Festival, held Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Crabapple. A tradition since 1969, this one-day-only, rain or shine outdoor festival features thousands of antiques, accessories and unique pieces of art in all mediums.

Portions of sales benefit the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America and many other non-profit organizations. Parking and admission are free.

"We get quite a crowd, so shoppers need to come early for the best buys," said festival organizer Sally Rich-Kolb. "We have thousands of antiques and accessories, from 19th century American Country to vintage/chic, pottery and old and new quilts. Plus, as always, we have the perfect find for someone searching out that unique piece of art or jewelry. There is just too much to list so you must come and see for yourself!"

Included in the festival are roaming musicians, a varied menu of food items, trolley rides and children's activities provided by the Goddard School from 2 to 4 p.m.

Children at the Goddard School must have one guardian with them at all times, said Rich-Kolb. While there the youngsters will be entertained by Captain Planet, music, magicians and a moon bounce.

Organizers recommend bringing cash or a checkbook, as about half the artists and dealers can not accommodate credit cards.
