Elm Bank Reservation on the Wellesley/Dover/South Natick line hosted its 6th annual antiques show over the weekend. In an effort to escape the summer heat of past years, organizers moved the show from July to June, only to have Mother Nature serve up weather better for turtles than shoppers, not that many antiques fans didn’t still show up.
Things at the show I have also seen at Wellesley’s RDF Give-and-Take area: Ironstone pitchers, mismatched flatware; Lenox salt-and-pepper shakers. Things at the show that you can’t get from the Give-and-Take area: Tables, because RDF volunteers use them to display the constantly changing stock of residents’ cast-offs; oil paintings of Cape Cod; full sets of dishes.
