The Event History
The Story of the first annual event, 2002: Testing the limits of capacity for possible future events held at the facility, the first annual Corona Antiques & Collectibles Faire filled the park with 30 dealers and approximately 3,000 deal-seekers. Using every available parking area, traffic and safety worked well with no imposition on the surrounding neighborhoods.
Providing opportunities for culture in the community, the faire adds another aspect of exploration into art and designs of the past. More than just being able to look and learn about old stuff, you can buy it and take it home with you.
Besides the expected antique depression and carnival glass, silver, china, dolls, furniture and collectible do-dads, the Corona Historic Preservation Society had an outlet for the first time for selling architectural components and salvage. CHPS also handled the lemonade sales, which has come to be expected at any event having to do with Corona history.
Other edibles began with Starbucks, who donated proceeds to the park, Krispy Kreme donuts, cookies donated by Carl’s Jr., bottled water donated by the City of Corona, and hot dogs with fried onions served by the ARC Angels.
Extensive advertising for the event was done through antiques publications, newspapers, flyers, local businesses and the radio. Thanks to Steve Atkins, morning DJ of KMXN 1510 AM, for stopping and making impromptu announcements for us on the P/A.
Dealers seemed pleased with their sales and buyers as happy with the variety of items. Others attending were already interested in signing up for next year’s show.
