CLEARWATER – The Florida Collectibles and Vintage Memorabilia Show will be Sunday, Oct. 30, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the historic Belleview Biltmore Hotel.

The show will feature more than 50 exhibitor booths and will offer a nostalgic trip back in time. Booths will be filled with the finest selection of vintage, collectible Floridiana including old Florida postcards, books, crate labels and license plates; cypress and coconut and palm frond lamps; furniture made from palm fronds; paintings from The Florida Highwaymen and tinted photographs from Barnhill and Harris; kitschy roadside attraction souvenirs; old cigar industry paraphernalia and much more.

Included in the impressive line-up of Floridiana collectibles and vintage memorabilia exhibitors are some of the leading experts and authors in the field, including Larry Roberts, author of “Florida’s Golden Age of Souvenirs: 1890-1930”; Dr. Alfred Frankel, author of “Old Florida Pottery/Potters in Paradise: The Collectors Guide”; and Seth Bramson, author of numerous books on areas related to Florida’s history, including “Speedway to Sunshine,” the popular Florida railroad history book. All authors will be available for book signings.

There will be lectures during the day on paintings by The Florida Highwaymen and the work of other Florida artists. Several exhibitors will be selling from their extensive collections of Florida Highwaymen paintings and other vintage Florida art. Mary Ann Carroll, the only female painter in the Highwaymen group of artists, will make a special appearance. Carroll will be selling her works and giving a painting demonstration.

Other scheduled talks include “110 Years of Service: The Florida East Coast Railway,” “Collecting Florida Transportation Memorabilia” and “The Great Commercial Works of Henry B. Plant.” Kelly Reynolds will be offering his entertaining and educational one-man performance “Henry Plant - Live.”

The public is invited to bring their vintage Florida art to the show for a free verbal appraisal.

Entertainment will be provided by the bands Haole Kats and Bill T. & Co.

Admission is $5, children under 2 years are $3. Free parking will be available on the hotel grounds.

The Belleview Biltmore Hotel is at 25 Belleview Blvd. Call 363-4852 or e-mail hulahula@tampabay.rr.com.
