Fisher House Antiques Show set

BLUE HILL — The Jonathan Fisher House of Blue Hill will hold its annual antiques show for the general public at the Blue Hill Fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 17, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

In its 12th season, this popular fundraiser is an old-fashioned country outdoor show, featuring 27 antiques dealers from around Maine and northern New England.

The show includes specialties for every taste, from early American to mid-century modern, including art and decorative objects.

General admission is $7, or early buyer’s admission is $15 to enter at 8 (not before please, as the dealers will be setting up).

All proceeds benefit the Jonathan Fisher House, a historic house museum in Blue Hill. Fisher’s famed collection of folk art, surveying instruments, woodworking tools, furniture and farming implements that he designed and personally made are housed at the homestead, located at 44 Mines Road (U.S. 15 South).

The homestead is open throughout the summer. Hours are Thursday-Saturday from 1-4 p.m., or by appointment.

For more information, call the Fisher House at 374-2459.
