Joshua and Rachel Gurley, the children of Nan Gurley (1943-2016), have announced that the New Deerfield Antique Show at the Deerfield Fairgrounds, Deerfield, New Hampshire, will be held on Monday, August 7, the beginning of Antiques Week in New Hampshire.
The fairgrounds in Deerfield were not used for Nan Gurley’s show last August. Before her death, Nan Gurley had moved her Americana Celebration show, formerly held in Deerfield, to the Douglas N. Everett Arena in Concord, New Hampshire. That show is managed by Nan’s widower, Peter Mavris.
Joshua Gurley said, “It’s back by popular demand. So many dealers told us that they missed Deerfield, we just had to do it for them.” Many are asking for their former spaces from when the show was Nan’s a few years ago, he added. Dealers from throughout New England and from Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, South Carolina, and Maryland are already committed to doing the show. Rachel Gurley has been taking calls from dealers, who are quickly filling the roughly 100 exhibit spaces.
Deerfield Fairgrounds offers indoor and outdoor exhibit areas for the dealers and easy access to parking. The show will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; admission will be $10, with no early buying.
