Gigantic Amazing Antique Show



This is a picture of the Madison Bouckville Week Long Antique show in New York state along Route 20

On a recent trip to the Finger Lakes we happened upon this amazing event.  It was fun to walk around and see all the cool pieces.  Luckily we did not have our truck with  us.  My only purchase was a very small ball pein hammer which I feel lucky to have found for just $6.00.  Below are some pictures I took with  my phone of a few of the displays.  Next year we will visit and be prepared to transport some treasures.


  
My husband found a long sought after piece for an antique latch for our guest room door at this very large booth of bit and pieces of antiques hardware and more.


Of course this was my favorite booth.  The owner  Cheri Moyer was very friendly and asked me if I was a jeweler when she spotted the small ball pein hammer I had bought.  I was  intrigued by her lovely displays, like the antique rakes she used to display necklaces and the wonderful umbrella she rescued and sewed lace on giving it a Boho Victorian look. See next picture) I would leave a link for her but she only sells out of shows.

Repurposed umbrella.  Love that Victorian look!!
If you live in New York state near Route 20 you are probably there right now.  It goes on through the 16th of August.
Thanks so for stopping by.

  1. This show looks wonderful! There is something similar in Elkhorn, WI a little over an hour from where I live. I spend the day swooning any time I visit. What a wonderful event to happen upon!
