E-mail Print PDF

The 3rd annual Piatt County Antique Day will be held on Saturday,      March 7th, from 9am - 5pm. Ten antique retailers in seven Piatt County communities will be open for visitors to tour though and find the perfect find. This is a unique opportunity to travel through some of the smallest communities in Piatt County and Central Illinois, visit some fabulous antique stores, and enjoy the low sales tax rate of Piatt County.


Participants include: Margaret’s Attic to Basement Antiques, Three-Toad Treasures and Funky Junk Shop, Rose ‘N Berries (all of Mansfield); Willow Tree Antiques (Deland); The Barn Antiques (Cisco); There’s No Place Like Home, Skinner’s Coachhouse Antiques (all of Monticello); Petals and Porch Posts (Bement); Expressions Thrift Gift and Consignment(Cerro Gordo); and Things Forgotten Antiques (Atwood). Details on all the participating retailers, as well as an event map can be found on the website below.


Piatt County is located just west of Champaign County, and east of Macon County, and stands between Farmer City and Arthur, Illinois- where there are large antique shows during the day.

The communities participating have a variety of shopping opportunities, and most have dining available. All communities are worth the visit!


More information can be found at www.cityofmonticello.net, or by calling Callie McFarland, City of Monticello at 217.762.2583.
