Something For The Weekend Palm Beach County June 3rd Through 5th
Yesteryear Village, A Living History Park
Friday 3rd & Saturday 4th June
Florida’s rich history in your own backyard! When you walk into Yesteryear Village, you are transported to a different time . . . A time when schools were located in one small building and houses did not have running water . . . A time when people had goats, chickens, and sheep in their backyards . . . And a time when life was simple. Yesteryear Village is a history park nestled on 10 acres, showcasing buildings and artifacts from 1895 to 1945. Discover a large collection of early, original and replicated buildings including an old school, a farm, a blacksmith shop, a general store, and several houses. We also have the only big band museum in the United States, the Sally Bennett Big Band Hall of Fame Museum. You are invited to come inside these buildings during a guided tour, where you will marvel at the period furnishings and items from the era. Discover merchandise that showcases the people and ideas of early Florida. Shoppers of all ages will be delighted by our unique items at the General Store. Also open Sunday.

West Palm Beach Antiques Festival
Friday 3rd through Sunday 5th June
Bill and Kay Puchstein are originally from Ohio, they began a love affair with antiques many years ago. Kay was introduced to antiques and collectibles in her teenage years by her grandmother. Her love for vintage items grew as she began collecting more and more throughout her adulthood. She later cut her teeth in the antique business in the 1980's, when she became a show manager and worked with a successful promoter on a monthly antique show in Atlanta, GA. While working there she met Bill, a dealer, who would not take no for an answer when he asked Kay to dinner. They fell in love and were married shortly after. Bill began doing the marketing for the show as well as dealing in Primitives and early American. Learning so much from their experiences and work with dealers and show promotion, it inspired them to partner and start Pride of Dixie on the north side of Atlanta, GA. Kay and Bill continued buying and selling antiques along with show promotion and in 2000 they purchased the Deland Antique Show just outside of Daytona. From there other opportunities arose to acquire additional shows, and by the late 2000's they were not only dealers, but they were promoting 7 shows across the state. In 2007, they were presented with an offer to purchase the largest monthly antiques, and collectibles show in the state. For the past 6 years, they have worked to make The West Palm Beach Antiques Festival the BEST and most successful show in Florida.
