Second Annual Vintage Radio Market!
The Asheville Radio Museum, in conjunction with the Carolina Chapter of the Antique Wireless Association (CC-AWA), is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Vintage Radio Market, to be held on October 15, 2022, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Asheville-Buncombe Community Technical College (AB-Tech).
The market will be in the parking lot behind the A-B Tech campus parking garage. Set GPS devices to 16 Fernihurst Drive, Asheville, NC or 283 Victoria Road, Asheville, NC, then follow the signs.
The museum and vendors from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia will offer many kinds of restored and restorable vintage radios, parts, accessories and books. In addition, attendees can visit and tour the museum throughout the day. Parking and admission to the market and museum are free.
“Last year’s inaugural Vintage Radio Market was a resounding success,” said Ron Beaver, Asheville Radio Museum president. “Radio collectors, ham radio operators, and families enjoyed seeing the diverse examples of radios from the early 1920s through the 40s and some of the amazing artistry of their wooden cabinets. This year’s event will continue the fun and learning about classic 20th-century radios.”
Visitors are encouraged to bring their vintage radios or their photographs for museum experts to provide the owner details about the radio’s manufacturer, production year, unique features, etc. They can also furnish information about local restorers who can bring their radio back to life.
