By W.A. Demers

NEW HAMPSHIRE — With the general reopening that is occurring across the United States in response to Covid-19 vaccination progress, there is also some good news for show managers, dealers and collectors who were concerned that state regulations would adversely affect plans for the August 8-14 Antiques Week in New Hampshire. With one exception, the shows will go on as live, in-person events, although fully adhering to state and local guidelines regarding crowd-size limits, mask-wearing and other safety measures.

In March, queried as to whether the Antiques in Manchester show, more familiarly known as the “Collector’s Fair,” would occur, show manager Karen DiSaia said that one way or another her show would go forward. Contacted for an update, she replied, “Antiques in Manchester: The Collectors Fair” has committed to reopening at its usual home at Saint Anselm College. I’ve never had a faster response from dealers than when I sent that email asking them to confirm their participation,” she told Antiques and The Arts Weekly. “Most all of them have confirmed.” DiSaia noted the fair, set for August 11-12, will look similar to years past as the show’s aisles were already appropriately spaced. She said the event will follow all safety regulations required.
