"We get quite a crowd, so shoppers please come early for the best buys," said festival organizer Sally Rich-Kolb. "We have thousands of antiques, from 19th century American Country, to primitives, to shabby chic, to old and new pottery and quilts."
Artists will be on hand selling jewelry, birdhouses, watercolor and oil paintings, photography and hand-blown ornaments, said Rich-Kolb.
"There is just too much to list, so you must come and see for yourself," she said.
Included in the festival are roaming musicians, food, a trolley to free parking areas and children's activities provided by the Goddard School from 2 to 4 p.m. A number of non-profit organizations also take part, including the Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of the USA.
