Chester County Historical Society’s popular fund-raiser to be held April 4-6
The event, sponsored by PECO, will feature more than 48 renowned dealers from throughout the country, making it a must-see for anyone searching for that perfect piece of furniture or accessory. The theme of this year’s event is “Recreation, Hobbies, and Leisurely Pursuits.” Organizers say that the accessibility, spaciousness, and natural light at the Phelps School will provide an ideal backdrop for the vendors and all of their antique items.
