The Prescott Antique Show & Vintage Market has its origins in the late 1980s (originally called “Antiques on the Square”) and held in downtown Prescott, growing from several hundred in attendance to several thousands today. Sponsors of the show for the past 18 years have been Thumb Butte and Yavapai chapters of the Questers. 100% of show profits are donated to area preservation and restoration projects. The Questers is a non-profit international organization whose mission is to preserve and restore historic sites, buildings and artifacts – and to educate the public about its heritage. Two recent Questers projects include:
• The Questers Women’s Suffrage Traveling Exhibit – a free 6 panel, life-size exhibit featuring the history of the Women’s Suffrage Movement / 19th Amendment. Suitable for exhibit at schools, museums, special events and available state-wide.
• The Keepsakes Roadshow, modeled after the popular Antiques Roadshow, is a free program where people come together in their venue of choice to share stories about their treasured keepsakes. No appraisals are given. This “show and tell” trip down memory lane is always fun and informative! Suitable for 55+ communities and other groups.
