Penn Dry Goods Market in Pennsburg

The Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center, 105 Seminary Street, Pennsburg, is hosting their annual Penn Dry Goods Market May 16-17, 2014.

What is the PENN DRY GOODS MARKET?

The traditional definition of “dry goods” is textiles, clothing and other related merchandise. At the PENN DRY GOODS MARKET you can shop with fantastic dealers who will be featuring antique and vintage textiles, including needlework, quilts, coverlets, linens, clothing, buttons and textile-making equipment ranging from spinning wheels to pin cushions! Our dealers will also have selections of wonderful American antiques from their inventories-there’s a little something for every taste. We have opened up the first floor gallery, meeting room and the library for our dealers-a great space that is handicapped accessible!

 

The PENN DRY GOODS MARKET is (also) an amazing opportunity to learn from noted experts in textile history. In 2014 we will be offering a superb roster of speakers on a wide variety of topics, ranging from Amish quilts and Quaker samplers to the costumes of Gone with the Wind. Register early as seating is limited.
