Theater, antiques dealers moving ahead with plans for event at Fox

PITTSBURG, Kan. — The Colonial Fox Theatre Foundation and local antiques dealers are making preparations to present an antique market on April 27.

It will be the first event of its kind in downtown Pittsburg and a first for the historic theater, which is undergoing restoration.

Organizers say the market will feature local and regional vendors selling a variety of antiques, vintage items and collectibles. Vendors will set up on Broadway between Fourth and Sixth streets.

Local antiques dealers Ted Monsour, Roger Stumfoll, Cathy Clouston of Found It, Tim and Christy Corn of Main Street USA, and Larry Black of Dapper have been working with the Colonial Fox Theatre staff to launch the event.

“We are building a credible antique event that draws visitors and features our local antique businesses as well as dealers from the Four States,” Monsour said.

Visitors will have the opportunity to take items to the Colonial Fox to be valued by local and regional antiques appraisers.

The final event in the lineup is a live antiques consignment auction and raffle on the Colonial Fox stage. The raffle will offer visitors the opportunity to win a 10-gallon Pittsburg Pottery Co. crock, a Howard Miller grandfather clock, or a signed print of “Little Balkans of Pittsburg” by noted American sports artist Ted Watts, of Oswego.

Antiques, vintage items and collectibles may be registered for the consignment auction. Sellers will receive 90 percent of the purchase price, with 10 percent of the proceeds going to the revitalization of the theater.

People are encouraged to register their items for the auction early, organizers say. Vendor booth spaces still are available but are filling. Details: 620-235-0622 or


THE AUCTION WILL MARK the first public event to be held on the Colonial Fox Theatre stage since the theater closed in 1985.
