Highlighting the Holiday Calendar: Yenke Peddler Antiques
CLEVELAND, Ohio – In anticipation of the holidays, take note of upcoming shows and special events.
The season kicks off November 13-14 when the Dunham Tavern Museum Antiques Show kicks off at Shaker Heights Country Club, 3300 Courtland Blvd. Admission is $ 10, valid for both days. Parking is free.
The Medina Candlelight Walk runs from November 19-21, showcasing all the glories of Christmas past, with decorations, music, shopping and adventure. In addition, the Medina collector’s items flea market takes place on November 21 and December 19. It is held at the Medina County Fairgrounds, 735 Lafayette Road. Early risers cost $ 3 from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and $ 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Christmas in Zoar, Tuscarawas County will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on December 4 and from noon to 5 p.m. on December 5. Admission is $ 10. All of the artisans will be inside the buildings this year, with handcrafted offerings putting the Americana theme as a top priority. There will also be horse-drawn cart rides, food, Christmas carols and the quaint charm of a former settlement.
We hope downtown Cleveland has some exhibits and a winter party feeling. Of course, Jack Casino will showcase the Higbees window decor, and The Christmas Story House in Tremont will be an anchor for families.
If you want something ingenious to do this weekend, there is a really good craft fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday (November 6) at Sts. Joseph and John School, 12580 Pearl Road in Strongsville. They will have quality crafts, food, and friendly entrepreneurs.
Shop at your antique, consignment and second-hand stores for home decor, gifts, and collectibles. And make the Cleveland Craft Nook, 13803 Ridge Road in North Royalton, your handmade gift nook. It’s open seven days a week!
I saw your article in the newspaper and I have a few things I would like you to rate. If anything is marketable, please advise. These toys date from the 1900s.
I decided to focus on the most valuable toys. Your wooden horse and your man are from Albert Schoenhut Co., one of the best toy makers in Philadelphia. As a German immigrant, Schoenhut’s expertise began with the toy piano. Barney Google and Spark Plug appeared in comic book form as early as 1919. Wooden toys are now antiques. Both are in excellent condition, although the felt ID cover is missing from the spark plug. The value would be $ 400. Etsy is a good website or try a local reseller. The unopened HO mint brass train from E. Suydam & Co. (made in Japan) is expected to be valued at $ 300. Good job, Santa’s assistant!
