Now in the 54th year, the Chestertown Antiques Show & Sale is a high  point of the Thanksgiving week-end in Chestertown. Once again the Show  will feature past favorites and new dealers alike, with a great variety  of specialties, all in town to support Kent Association of Riding  Therapy (KART), a 501 c 3 non-profit dedicated to providing therapeutic  horseback riding to special needs children and adults.  

Back for the third year is nationally recognized art and antiques  appraiser, Todd Peenstra. He will be available throughout the weekend to  appraise items for Show attendees at $5 per item. As with past Shows,  Mr. Peenstra donates all appraisal fees to KART. If an item is too large  to bring to the show, a picture will be enough for an initial  appraisal.  For more information, please visit his website:   www.peenstraappraisals.com.   

This year, Sean Downey of Barn Life Primitives (AKA 13 beater street) in  Galena, MD, is donating a sweetheart table to be used in a raffle with  all proceeds benefitting KART. The winning ticket will be drawn 1pm,  Sunday November 26th. Winner does need to be present to win, but the  table must be picked-up by end of Show on Sunday – 3pm, or arrangements  must be made with Mr. Downey.  

Patrons will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets at the  show; $10 per ticket or at Barn Life Primitives located on Main Street  in Galena, MD.  In addition, tickets may be purchased online. Please  contact Mr. Downey by email 13beaterstreet@gmail.com OR visit his FB  page www.facebook.com/Barnlife Primitives
