Ohio Golden Glow members invite the public to first-ever collectors’ day

PIQUA, OH- Apple Tree Gallery, downtown Piqua’s 365-day Christmas and Halloween store, will be hosting a unique educational and shopping event on Saturday, April 13.  Area collectors are invited to attend.
The store, located at 405 N. Main St., will host the first-ever OhioAntique Christmas meet in partnership with the Golden Glow of Christmas Past.   The Glow is an international collecting organization whose members specialize in anything Christmas as long as the item was made before 1966.Click image posters to enlarge …
Mark Saturday April 13 on your calendar.  The event will be open from 10 am through 3 pm.  Twenty-two Golden Glow vendors will be on hand offering merchandise from all holidays, not just Christmas.  And the items for sale will range from antique, vintage and current holiday merchandise.  Shoppers will find everything from vintage holiday postcards, aluminum Christmas trees to contemporary ornaments from Patricia Breen, Christopher Radko and Mattarusky.  In addition, Apple Tree’s galleries of holiday collectibles will be open to shoppers.
Since Piqua is home to Celebrate365, Connie Porcher will be on hand with a full table and tree displays.  “My storage units are just two miles from the event,” Porcher commented.  “I’d be happy to deliver your shopping choices to you at the event … or you can shop online at the event and I’ll go and pick up your ornaments for you.  This is a unique opportunity for Celebrate365 and we are happy to be participating!”
Glohio’s event won’t be just about shopping.  It’s also a unique educational opportunity.  Glow members will offer three focused lectures along with one make-it, take-it workshop.  Former Glow president Mike Ciancio will speak about Thomas Nast and the Christmas illustrations for which is he famous.  What would the Christmas tree be without lights?  Greg Gregory will offer a brief history of “lighting” the tree from candlelight to electric lights.  What about the toys under the tree?  Jim Thomas will talk about Germany’s Erzgebirge region and one of its best-known Christmas antiques, the wooden Noah’s Ark.  Nikki Beltz will let visitors try their hand at making vintage-style Moravian stars.  Learn how simple strips of paper can be folded and woven into a three-dimensional star that German families used to decorate their Christmas trees.
This first meeting of the Ohio Chapter of the Golden Glow of Christmas Past is expected to draw visitors and exhibitors from surrounding states including Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York and Indiana. The cost to attend all the educational sessions plus the marketplace is $5 per person, payable at the door.
