The 55th Annual Lewes Antique Show and Sale, sponsored by Bethel United Methodist Church, was held in the church Fellowship Hall July 10-12. Antique dealers from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware were on hand selling jewelry, silverware, glassware, postcards, porcelein, furniture, rugs and many decorative items. Proceeds from the annual sale are for the renovation of the fellowship hall and the church budget.
