(Walnut) How often can you say you’ve seen one of the ten best events of their kind in the world? Those who descend upon Walnut June 15-17th will be able to make that claim.
The 31st Walnut Annual Antique Walk is coming up on Father’s Day weekend.
Gene Larsen, of Walnut, says, "American Pickers Magazie listed us as one of the top 10 antique shows in the world. Only three shows in the United States made that list and we were one of them."
Larsen on what makes the show one of the best,
“It's the settting, it's the people, the setting, it's just a wonderful little event. And we make sure we have really quality vendors coming. That’s the key.”
Larsen admits he initially had little interest in the antiques but one day decided to give it a try.
"For ten years I didn't even walk across town to see this show but one day I went up and found dozens of things I wanted and they weren't even expensive."
Larsen says over 300 vendors will be at the event which goes from 8:00am to 6:00pm on Friday and Saturday, and 8:00am to 4:00pm on Sunday.
