About the Show

The Thomasville Antiques Show Committee is pleased to present some of the country’s most prestigious dealers for the 30th annual Antiques Show & Sale. From February 22-24, 2019, these dealers will showcase antique furniture, paintings, rugs, jewelry, tableware, accessories and collectibles to suit the taste of the casual and the serious collector.

A black tie gala will kick-off the 30th Anniversary Thomasville Antiques Show & Sale on February 21, 2019. This benefactors' preview gives patrons the earliest opportunity to view and shop dealer booths for gifts and personal treasures while enjoying an elegant seated gourmet dinner.

This year, the show is dedicated to Avril Vignos, who for more than a decade has given generously of her time, her creativity and her ingenuity to the Antiques Show Foundation.

For 30 years, the Thomasville Antiques Show Foundation, Inc. has focused on the single aim of benefiting local children. The Foundation continues to provide funding for quality programs that enrich and assist children in Thomasville and Thomas County. Over $2,500,000 has been raised by the Thomasville Antiques Show Foundation to ensure that the children’s programs of Thomasville continue to thrive.
