In a community founded on agriculture, some of the greatest antiques and art collectables come from farming.
On Saturday, October 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., a florida produce crate label swap meet will take place in the Carnegie Library, 515 10th Ave. West, Palmetto, basement in the Palmetto Historical Park.
Many Florida labels will be on display and available for trading and sale by some of the major collectors in the state. If you have labels or citrus related items, bring them to the swap as collectors will be purchasing as well as giving estimates.
Come out and learn about this part of Florida history and enjoy the art and beauty the labels offer. Perhaps take some home!
In addition to the Crate Label Swap Meet, Word of Mouth BBQ will be on site selling sandwiches and hotdogs and there will be a community yard sale occurring at the same time and location.
For more information on the swap, call Jim Thielen at 776-9444.
