18th Century Artisan's Show

It's that time of year again! The 18th Century Artisan Show Lewisburg PA Contemporary and Antique American Folk Art Show

The 18th Century Artisan's Show is going to be at the Country Cupboard in Lewisburg, Pa. on 31 Jan/1 Feb. That is only two weeks away this Fri/Sat. Time to plan!

It is a great show, with some awesome builder's showing their wares, including HPA's own Allen Martin. Also a good place to get parts, hand made accouterments and accessories.

I am planning on going Friday, and maybe on Saturday, depending on how bad the temptation is!

If You are there, and see a crusty older guy wearing an OD USAF baseball cap, speak up. I have met quite a few from HPA while there, and in some cases, a few of us cross paths year after year! Most times while drooling over rifles!

Hope to see/meet You there!

I don't have any rifles with Allen this year, Rusty, so you and Matt can't put more "aging" on the metal this time!

I'll be there that Friday looking for a haversack and whatever else I "need".

It would not surprise me one bit if Allen has something that piques Your fancy!

I'd be shocked if he doesn't, but I'm pretty tapped out on discretionary funds of that magnitude at the moment!

I've never been to this show. I was thinking of going Saturday the 1st. How is it? Is there a lot to see/look at? The vendor list seems decent as far as quantity/quality goes. It's a 2 hour drive for me to get there and it would be nice to know that the 2 hour drive is worth it.

Soup,

It is a really nice Show. There are probably 15-20 builders (maybe more) showing off their rifles/smoothies/pistols. Plus there are leather goods folks, metalwork folks, horner's, weavers, etc. There is also a parts room, and an "originals" room with historic artifacts and guns.

I posted some pics last year, for those who couldn't make it. See the link below.

Weather permitting, I'll head up on Friday, and attempt to control the drool and fingering of my credit card. My only purchase last year was a hand-painted tile for my wife, and I enjoyed the points it earned.

I'll likely wear my green Maine guide crusher hat which enhances my white beard and blood-shot eyes. I spoke with Allen Martin last year and would enjoy bumping into other HuntingPAers.

Soup, you will be more than pleased with the show, and a Country Cupboard lunch is a pleasant addition to the day. Berks

Talking to Allen gets me in trouble.

Just ask my wife.
