You know fall has arrived when the weather turns cooler, the leaves start to change, and the last Tri-State Antique Market of the season is announced. Autumn is a terrific time to go antiquing, and a day spent browsing treasures and hunting bargains is a fall pleasure that’s hard to resist.
With that in mind, the last Tri-State Antique Market of the season will be held on Sun., Oct. 30 from 7am-3pm at the Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds. Admission is $3 for adults, with children under 18 admitted free. Following a break during the winter, the monthly show will resume again in May.
