Antiques & Collectibles Event in Apex – Raleigh Durham RTP Triangle North Carolina

The second annual Apex PEAK-TIQUE Antiques and Collectibles Festival is being organized and managed jointly by the Apex Downtown Business Association (ADBA), the Apex Historical Society (AHS) and the Town of Apex (TOA). The ADBA and AHS are both non-profit organizations. Check out the current episode of the Peak City Podcast, featuring The Rusty Bucket co-founder Mack Thorpe highlighting Peak-Tique and Founders Day

PEAKTIQUE, what's in a name

In 1853, what is now Apex NC was known as "Log Pond Village." In 1868, the railroad started coming through Log Pod Village and the engineers and conductors would refer to the Depot in Log Pond Village as the Apex Station. The reason it was spoke of as the Apex Station was because it was the highest geographic point along the rail line between Chatham County and Richmond Va. In 1872, Log Pond Village petitioned the state legislator to be incorporated as a town to be named Apex. In the early 1970's the Town of Apex had a contest to come up with a tag line or slogan. The winning slogan for Apex was: "The Peak of Good Living."

In planning for the 2017 Apex Founders Day celebration, it was decided to add an Antique and Collectibles show to the venue of the event. So……. we took the slogan and the word "antique," combining "PEAK" with "ANTIQUE" to get……"PEAKTIQUE". And now you know the rest of the story.
