Glen Ridge Antiques Show

The Glen Ridge Antiques Show will celebrate its 70th year with its annual show on February 5 & 6. This milestone makes it the longest running antiques show in Northern New Jersey and one of the oldest in the United States. To help celebrate this event, the show will welcome Nye & Co., whose founder, John Nye, is an expert appraiser regularly appearing on the Antiques Roadshow on PBS.

The success of the Glen Ridge Antiques Show can be attributed to its reputation for attracting some of the finest dealers from the North East, homemade culinary delights, and a dedicated team of volunteers who graciously welcome guests and exhibitors alike. The show regularly attracts over 1000 patrons over two days and gives all proceeds to people in need throughout Essex County via ten local charities.

The show’s loyal clientele returns year after year for its wide selection of antique furniture, art, jewelry and collectables that can be appreciated by both the serious collector and casual browser alike; those with more traditional taste to those possessing a more modern aesthetic.

This year’s show features a mix of dealers that have been with the show for decades to those exhibiting for the first time.

UPDATE: Snow is expected to hit NJ sooner than previously expected.

Montclair Township writes:

The storm has moved farther north with possible accumulations of 8” to 15” in our area. Wind gusts of up to 35-45MPH expected, with blowing, drifting snow. Forecasts show the storm hitting our area between 10:00 p.m. tonight and 1:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

Snow accumulations

Tonight: 3” to 6” possible by daybreak

Daytime tomorrow: 4” to 8”

Tomorrow night: a total of 8” to 15” accumulation with snowfall ending around midnight.

There is a blizzard warning in effect for our area starting on Saturday morning through noon on Sunday. Our area may experience strong winds with sustained wind speeds of 25-30 MPH and gusts up to 50 MPH — creating the potential for downed wires — and snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches.

Locals are running out to buy bread, milk, and lots of wine — we hear Whole Foods was out of organic milk yesterday, but Brookdale ShopRite got rave reviews for being well-stocked and orderly, despite long lines. Many are filling up their cars with gas and waiting in lines lines to score a great deal.

The Montclair Office of Emergency Management is getting prepared and will declare a state of emergency should heavy snowfall forecasts continue. At the Montclair council meeting this week, we learned that salt will not be an issue this year:
