Among the 40 dealers there will also be others exhibiting fine art including 19th & early 20th century prints and paintings, textiles and more. Visitors will find the show well-rounded with an exciting variety of antiques in all price ranges and with the quality that the Camden Show patrons have come to expect over the years.
