Antiques Council

ANTIQUES SHOWS

The Antiques Council currently manages, on behalf of local charities, three high quality antiques shows. Dealer participants are carefully selected for the quality and authenticity of their items and are required to subscribe to the rigorous standards of the Antiques Council. Every item must be displayed with a written description, including details of age, origin and description and the dealer must guarantee every item to be as described.


The Cathedral Antiques Show

We are pleased to add The Cathedral Antiques Show to our roster of acclaimed Council managed Antiques Shows. This venerable Atlanta show is the major outreach project of the Episcopal Women of the Cathedral of St Philip. Through the hard work of volunteers, the church, corporate sponsors, patrons, exhibitors and the community, the Antiques Show has raised more than $5 million for Atlanta area non-profits. The Cathedral receives no funding from the show, each year’s net proceeds are distributed to the beneficiary organization. The 2017 beneficiary is First Step Staffing, a nonprofit staffing agency that works to secure steady and sustainable income for individuals transitioning from homelessness through job placements and wraparound support services. We are pleased indeed to be a part of this effort!
With upwards of 25 nationally recognized antiques dealers showcasing a carefully edited collection of furnishings, paintings, accessories, jewelry, textiles and prints, along with the Flower Festival and home tours, a gallery of contemporary art, a gardening boutique and a Young Collector’s booth, the Cathedral Antiques Show offers something for everyone!
