A Week of Antiques on Central Oregon Coast

Published 02/09/2012

(Lincoln City, Oregon) – More than 80 dealers and hundreds and hundreds of people will gather on the central Oregon coast starting this weekend for Lincoln City's Antique Week, which is actually ten days of a massive antique and collectibles festival.

Starting February 10, the festival runs through February 20 and takes place all over town, including the highlight of celebrity collectibles expert Harry Rinker making his regular appearances at the event. Rinker, star of HGTV’s Collector Inspector until 2004 (a weekly show devoted to seeking out antiques and collectibles in private homes) will be offering appraisals in Lincoln City from February 10-13.

Harry Rinker

His appearances begin with the Oregon Coast Antique & Collectible Appraise-a-thon at the Chinook Winds Casino Resort. There are also other features around the central Oregon coast town such as workshops at the Lincoln City Cultural Center and The Little Antique Mall. At North by Northwest Books, you can enjoy an impromptu discussion about Vaseline glass and antique medical supplies.

A rather amazing feature this year will be spotlights on Japanese glass floats and super heroes in various ways, including a special display of actual antique floats and events where antique super hero paraphernalia will be on display and appraised.

Highlights this year include:

Antique Store Scavenger Hunt. It's a Japanese glass float scavenger hunt that will take you on a trip throughout Lincoln City. See the Lincoln City site for participating locations.

Citywide Antique Sales: various places around Lincoln City will be hosting these.

100 Extra Contemporary Glass Floats. This makes a total of 175 artful glass floats that will be placed around the beaches.

Historic Japanese Glass Float Exhibit at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, Wednesday through Saturday, Noon to 5 p.m. There is also a quilt exhibit there. Located at 4907 SW Hwy 101. www.northlincolncountyhistoricalmuseum.org.
