Supporting Community Efforts- The Asheville Antiques Fair has generated and contributed more than a half-million dollars to numerous projects benefitting the greater Asheville-Buncombe County community.

The profits have aided the restoration and furnishing of the Smith-McDowell House Museum, the oldest surviving house in Asheville and one of the earliest homes in the county. Other grants were made to the Pack Place Education, Arts & Science Center; the Thomas Wolfe Memorial house; Asheville Symphony; Asheville Urban Trail; Habitat for Humanity; and the Richard Sharp Smith-designed building housing Asheville’s public radio station WCQS and The Grove Arcade Public Market Foundation..

The recipient of the 2011-2012 Asheville Antiques Fair will benefit The Preservation of the Bascom Lamar Lunsford Archives at Mars Hill College.

The Vetust Study Club, which makes this Antiques Fair possible, also continues to make annual gifts to several community charities each year, such as Western Carolina Rescue Ministries, Meals on Wheels, the Asheville-Buncombe County Community Ministry, and the Salvation Army.
