At the Lucas County Recreation Center in Maumee, the annual antique show and sale is taking place to raise money for the Maumee Valley Historical Society.

There are over 90 dealers from 16 states. There is something for beginner collectors as well as the advanced collector.

Amy Danforth, the special events coordinator at the Maumee Valley Historical Society commented about the vendors saying, "just walking around, the dealers are so knowledgeable and very willing to talk with you about any of your antique concerns or to answer questions about things that you do not even know what they areâ?¦.you might find out grandmaâ??s jewelry that you thought was gaudy, is actually worth quite a lot."

The antique show is open Sunday, January 27, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
