LOLETA- Vendors from as far away as Idaho are in Loleta this weekend for the town’s annual antique show.

Nearly 1,000 people are expected to come out to the Loleta Volunteer Fire Department’s biggest fundraiser of the year. At the antique show, nearly 25 vendors are selling goods ranging from large-piece furniture to antique glassware. One hundred percent of the proceeds generated go towards the fire department. Organizers say last year the event brought in almost $7,000.

“the community shows such support for this and our vendors want to come back,” said Antique Show Coordinator Meredith Biasca. “We have a list of vendors that want to get in. They love it here. They absolutely love it here and the community comes out and shows their support and really spends some money.”
