WDIY benefit 'Heart' antiques

Wednesday, February 27, 2013 by The Press in Focus

WDIY, 88.1 FM is celebrating the 13th anniversary of its annual fundraiser, "Heart of the Valley" Antiques Show, March 2 and 3. The City of Bethlehem is once again a major sponsor for the event.

During the first weekend in March, the Charles A Brown Ice House, 56 River St., Sand Island, Bethlehem, will be transformed into an antiques collectors' emporium.

Twenty-five select dealers will be offering quality wares in the form of textiles, pottery, folk art, quilts, primitives, toys, holiday décor, painted, formal and country furniture and more.

"When you pair what these dealers bring to the exhibit with the architectural elements of the structure, you have quite a fabulous looking space in which to browse and buy," says Anne Bedics, the show's manager.

"This is one of the few antiques shows with a soundtrack," continues Bedics. "After all, we are raising funds for WDIY, Community Public Radio, so why wouldn't we want to enhance your shopping experience with the music of Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles, big band, jazz and a variety of music, putting you in the mood to enjoy yourself while searching for that certain treasure."

Soups, salads and snacks, provided by Backdoor Bake Shop, will be available for purchase.

Show hours are 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. March 2 and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. March 3.

Proceeds benefit programming and operations for WDIY, Community Public Radio, 88.1 FM, the NPR station member for the Lehigh Valley.
