With 100 dealers, this year’s show has something for everyone. Visitors will see an enormous variety of treasures from our past from estate jewelry and art glass to original painted 18th century furniture and textiles, oriental rugs, clocks, toys, linens and lace, lighting, paintings and prints and everything else in-between. One can spend $5.00 or $5,000 at this show and walk away with a treasure.
The show management makes every effort to maintain customer confidence, with standards set to make sure that dealers present only authentic antiques and collectibles.
If all of the above isn’t enough, the food is “country fresh and tasty”; lovingly prepared by SCHA volunteers – hot soup, chili, macaroni and cheese, sandwiches, and delicious pies, cakes and cookies, fudge and peanut brittle. A cafe-style area with tables is set up in the hallways so customers can sit and relax.
Proceeds from the semi-annual antique shows fund the ongoing historic activities of the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association. These include: the restoration and maintenance of the historic Schoharie Valley railroads grounds with its 1848 brick station house, restored baggage car and old Mill Building, used by various community groups, and the 1743 Lutheran Parsonage, the oldest building in Schoharie County.
“Antiques in Schoharie” has been a consistent winner due to the dedication of members of the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association, the participation of antique dealers who always bring quality merchandise, and all of the other individuals who volunteer their time. The spring show will be held at the Schoharie Central School, Saturday, March 6, 10-5 and Sunday, March 7, 11-4. Admission is $6.00.
There will be plenty of parking available on the school grounds. For list of motels, B&Bs, restaurants or any other information call Debbie Tow at the SCHA office, 295-7505 or Ruth Anne Keese at 295-6214 or email: [email protected].
