The dates for this year’s annual Antique Show and Sale held at the Pottersville Fire Station and Country Schoolhouse, in Pottersville, New Jersey, are July 31, August 1, and August 2, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Forty antiques dealers will display a wide variety of antiques, collectibles, and vintage home furnishings.
Back by popular demand, a distinguished panel of appraisers will again be available, between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. daily to evaluate items brought to them by show patrons at the flat rate of $5 per item. The fees benefit the Fire Company.
After browsing, socializing, appraising and shopping, patrons are invited to dine under the enormous striped tent where made-to-order lunches are served from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. The lunch menu includes a variety of sandwiches, ranging from grilled chicken and BLT’s to fireman’s burger specialties. Buffet-style dinners are served from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday means roast ham with raisin sauce. Friday brings rounds of roast beef with brown gravy and Saturday, breast of turkey with sausage firehouse stuffing. Those who have eaten there before know to save room for the “Double Desserts”: fresh sliced peaches served over ice cream or homemade cake.
Located on Route 512 (Pottersville Road), three miles west of Route 206 (look for signs), Pottersville is 20 minutes from Route 80 via Route 206 South and 15 minutes from Routes 78 or 287 via 206 North. General admission is $6 per person ($5 with discount card or newspaper ad), and parking is free.
