    Bit to Do

    Locust Grove hosts a variety of events throughout the year, and the next big one is coming up this weekend - the

    Locust Grove Antiques Market

    . The yearly event is celebrating thirty five years this Sunday, and with over eighty dealers in attendance you know it’s going to be quite the show.

    The one-day event is this Sunday, September 28th and runs from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and is being put on by

    Parrett/Lich, Inc

    . Operated by the husband and wife team of Rod Lich and Susan Parrett, the two of them have been in antiques for years. “Susan and I became full time dealers in American antiques in 1976.  We have dealt in antiques as our living for 38 years.  It has been our choice to travel and exhibit at shows throughout the eastern half of the U.S.” The pair run shows all over the east coast, including one in Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.

    Parrett and Lich have dedicated themselves to working over the road in part because of the increased sales potential involved in shows. “It would take years, if not decades, to see (as) many people with a real interest in buying while sitting in a shop.” If you’re as serious about antiques as Parrett and Lich, you owe it to yourself to come out and see what’s on offer at Locust Grove this Sunday. It’s going to be held rain or shine, and admission is $6 a person. There will also be food available, so you’ll be able to sit, relax, and re-fuel while looking at all of the amazing antiques on sale.
