No disrespect to the hundreds of church halls, elementary schools and local civic clubs that hold flea markets every year, but the people behind the Big Flea, a huge antiques and collectibles show coming to the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium for the first time this weekend, insist they have little in common with those small-timers. "The traditional flea market is a very small, small smattering of old merchandise," says Joan Sides, founder of Virginia-based D'Amore Promotions, which organizes the shows.

WHEN THE BALTIMORE SUMMER Antiques Show opens Thursday, visitors may be faced with too much of a good thing. More than 550 exhibitors will be selling everything from vintage postcards to period furniture. What's a novice collector to do? Amateurs, suggests Terry Kovel, co-author of the best-selling Kovels' Antiques and Collectibles Price List, should visit several shows without buying anything. They should ask millions of questions and in the process discover the kinds of antiques that appeal to them.

Other Maryland areas get more press as tourist destinations, but that's part of Havre de Grace's charm. The few blocks that make up its historic district seem all the more real -- a small, sleepy, old-fashioned town without the Disneyland polish. A day trip here will take you back decades in the blink of an eye. A train whistle sounds mournfully in the distance. Joseph's, a '50s-style department store, thrives on Washington Street, as close as Havre de Grace gets to Main Street U.S.A. There's a tea room, a local drugstore, and Harford County's oldest bakery.

CHICAGO -- Although many collectors and dealers may perish the thought, or pooh-pooh the theory that certain antiques or collectibles are thought to be unsafe, others take such matters very seriously and want to avoid any danger or mishaps that could result from the use of such items.Take asbestos, for instance, and whether it should be removed, encapsulated, ignored or further explored by testing certain material found in some antique or old heating devices such as some steel ranges and over-the-burner stove-top ovens that were sometimes insulated with asbestos to conserve heat and fuel.

Janice Peoples' dream turned into a reality yesterday at the Baltimore Summer Antiques Fair. Haunted for years by the vision of a diamond-and-platinum ring she had imagined, the avid jewelry collector had searched far and wide for it, without success. Until yesterday. "I knew it had to exist," said Peoples, 50, of Alexandria, Va., as she gently turned the simple band dating from the 1930s around her ring finger. "I've been dreaming about this ring for years." Not everyone knew as well as Peoples what they were looking for at the antiques show, which is in its 23rd year, at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Next Saturday thousands of people will line up in front of the Baltimore Convention Center, each carrying a treasure.If the treasure is too large to carry -- an occasional table, say, or a Majolica fountain -- they'll be pulling it in a little red wagon or on a dolly.Most probably the weather will be brutally hot and humid. But the 6,500 people who get tickets won't care. This will be their chance to be part of the addictively watchable PBS series "Chubb's Antiques Roadshow," in production this summer for its fourth season.
