Welcome to PATINA

MARCH 14, 2020

The 2020 PATINA Dealer Sale and Antique Tool Auction will be held in Damascus, MD on March 14, 2020. The event will be held as in past years at the Damascus, MD Volunteer Association Activity Center, located at 10211 Lewis Drive. Damascus, MD.

Join us in meeting friends and spend the day experiencing all things antique tool related and browse items that were instrumental in creating the unique American culture we treasure. Tailgating is included for those searching for special bargains or unique items on Friday and Saturday in the parking lot across the Activity Center building.

The schedule for the event includes an opportunity to enter the Activity Center Hall as an early bird on Friday March 13 from noon to 5:00pm on Friday. Early birds will also be admitted on Saturday morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am. There will be an early bird ticket available (good for both days) for a small fee which helps support Club costs for hosting the event.

Free admission begins at 8:00 am on Saturday March 14, 2020. Dealer sales will remain open throughout the PATINA Auction which will begin at 2:00 pm and last until the final lot hears the hammer, usually around 4:00 pm.

The Auction includes many fine tools and is sure to bring delight to dealers, users, and all those curious about old tools and crafts.

Food and beverages will be available throughout the day, so plan on attending our annual event and dip yourself into a vintage experience!

The Potomac Antique Tools and Industries Association, Inc. (PATINA) is an educational, tax-exempt organization for people who have an interest in the tools, crafts or manufacturing processes of the past.

Formed in 1977, PATINA is a regional tool club based in the Washington, D.C. area. We have members from 24 states, the District of Columbia and several foreign countries. Antique tool collectors, tool users and people simply seeking knowledge are well represented in PATINA's membership. The annual dues of $12.00 includes membership for the entire family and they are welcome to participate in all PATINA events. PATINA's original group of about 30 has grown to over 350.

Our mission is to promote and increase knowledge and understanding of the tools and trades practiced by our American ancestors. This purpose is partly served by the bimonthly newsletter PATINAGRAM which includes member-contributed articles and information of interest to our members. In addition, the PATINAGRAM provides regular announcements of upcoming meetings and auctions, reports on past meetings, reviews of relevant publications, and notices of other tool-related events. As an educational organization, PATINA is often invited to stage exhibits and demonstrations for local and national groups that express an interest in early tools and trades.
