The Ludlow Antiques Show—one of the five shows that make up Antiques Week in Vermont—will continue this year under new management. Kris Johnson and Steve Sherhag, promoters of the Okemo Antique Show and the Vermont Picker’s Market, will now manage the show, assisted by Robert Conrad, promoter of the New Oxford, Pennsylvania, One-Day Antique Show. The Ludlow show, which benefits the Holy Name of Mary Church, Proctorsville, Vermont, has been in existence for over 50 years.
According to Kris Johnson, former Ludlow promoter “Ann [Firkey] had e-mailed me a while back…. They were going to give up the show. I called Steve and said, ‘They are going to give this show up, and it’s part of the Vermont Antiques Week. Do you want to talk to her about taking it over?’ He said yes, and I told Ann we’d consider doing it. They were tickled to death that we wanted to do it.” Johnson said no major changes are planned; the number of dealers should be about the same, and the location, the Ludlow Community Center, will remain the same. “We’ll evaluate after this year,” Johnson said.
