Antiques show features 100 dealers

SCHOHARIE — The “Fall Antiques in Schoharie” show presented by the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association on Sept. 14 and 15 in the historic village of Schoharie will have 100 dealers.

On Sunday, the Schoharie Valley Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America will hold an exhibit of antique cars.

“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,” says a release from the association. “One can spend $5 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.”

The food is “country fresh and tasty,” the release says, “prepared by the best cooks in Schoharie County. Have a picnic under the big tents and enjoy homemade chili, corn chowder, sandwiches, and hot dogs all topped off by the famous irresistible homemade pies.”

Proceeds from the semi-annual antique shows fund the ongoing historic activities of the Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association.  These include: the continued cleanup and restoration of the railroad museum after Tropical Storm Irene; the maintenance of the historic Schoharie Valley railroad grounds with its 1848 brick station house, restored baggage car, and old mill building, used by various community groups; and maintenance of the 1743 Lutheran Parsonage, the oldest building in Schoharie County.  All are open to the public during the antique show hours.

The show will be held at 143 Depot Lane Center, Schoharie, on Saturday, Sept. 14, from 10a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 15, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Admission is $6.

Parking is available on the Depot Lane Center grounds.  For a list of motels, bed-and breakfast inns, restaurants, or any other information, call Debbie Tow at the SCHA office, 295-7505, or Ruth Anne Wilkinson at 231-7241, or email:
