Seafood, Canning and Delmarva Collectibles

On the 16th of February, the Dorchester County Historical Society will host its’ 3rd Annual event at the East New Market Volunteer Fire Department from 10 am – 4 pm.  This year the name reflects the fact that more memorabilia, ephemera and regional antiques will be shown and sold, while the main focus will still be on the rich seafood packing and vegetable canning industries of years past from Delmarva. 

Vendors and displays from Havre de Grace to the Eastern Shore of Virginia will be on hand for this agriculture and heritage related event.  Collectors of canning and seafood related memorabilia as well as those who love the history, art and culture of this time period in Delmarva history must plan to attend.  For those who have not experienced this particular history or hobby, this will be a perfect time to become introduced.

For those who wish to have more information or to rent tables for this event, please call 410.228.7953/443.786.8522 or email  Table rental is $20 each.   Admission to this event is free, although donations to the Dorchester County Historical Society, a qualified nonprofit organization, are appreciated.
