Antiques And Collectibles Show Stirs Memories

When it comes to collectibles, what often draws a person’s interest isn’t necessarily something of great financial value, but rather something that stirs a fond memory.

The 56th annual Manchester Antiques & Collectibles Show, held on March 23 and 24 at the Second Congregational Church on North Main Street, featured 38 dealers spread throughout the church’s upper and lower levels who offered vintage jewelry, glassware, artwork, linens, collectibles, and any number of memory-inducing surprises.

People of a certain age might remember hanging up one of those kitschy melted plastic Christmas or Easter decorations, known then as ‘glitter plaques’ made by the Kage Company on Elm Street in Manchester. One vendor had a box full of “new old stock,” featuring a baby chick hatching from an egg.

Each piece was stamped on the back with the Kage Company name and address and ‘Made in America With Pride.’ If one worked at Kage Company years ago, it would be like buying a memory.
