Antique show priced for everyone

Enquirer contributor

        SPRINGBORO — Shoppers at this weekend's Lebanon Antique Show weren't limited to well-heeled collectors. Many vendors also offered curios and collectibles that appealed to folks with more modest budgets.

        William Spencer of Rag Man Antiques attracted potential buyers with his cases of medals and antique photographs.

        “These sporting medals are from amateur athletic associations from the late 1800s through the 1930s,” the Michigan dealer said, pointing out a medal awarded to the winners of a sack race.

        He explained that prices of the photographs in his collection vary, depending on the process used and the nature of the image.

        “Of primary interest to photography collectors is the subject, a picture that tells something about American life at the time,” Mr. Spencer said. His daguerreotypes and tintypes range from under $100 to several hundred dollars.

        The antique show, sponsored by the Warren County Historical Society, is held twice yearly. Having outgrown facilities in its original host community of Lebanon, the show was held at Springboro Junior High this weekend. Organizers were pleased at the number of vendors — 80 dealers from 14 states — and by the shopper turnout.
