  • Antique Show vendors showcase unique items

    Tucked in the corner of Grace Lilly’s booth at the 51st Historic Bardstown Antiques Show, a 1920s table lamp with a castle scene painted on its glass shade caught the eye of a few patrons as they meandered about the aisles. The piece, priced at $1,150, has a history.

    “This sat on their piano for years,” said Lilly, owner of the Indiana-based Nothing New Antiques, as she referenced the lamp that belonged to her late aunt and uncle. The couple owned a restaurant and bar, the Nellenbach Hofbrau, in upstate New York for years.
