The show continues from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. Admission is $6.

This year's show will feature a variety of dealers with an array of antiques such as tools, quilts, jewelry, dolls, silver, glass, rugs, furniture, primitives and much more.

The Pilot Club of Huntington Antiques Show and Sale offers wide variety of items for every type of budget. It also offers an experience for those who are beginners or experienced in the antique market.

This is the only fundraising event for this longtime Huntington service club and the proceeds are used to help a variety of worthwhile charities in the Huntington area.
