INDIAN LAKE The 16th Annual Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show will be held for the fifth successful year at Byron Park on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2007, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will highlight a show of many returning dealers as well as new additions who promise to provide an exciting dimension to the breadth and quality of the show. For 16 years now the Adirondack region has focused on the antiques show as one of the major highlights of the fall season, and this, the anniversary edition, promises to be rewarding for those who make the trek to the mountain range in upstate New York.
It seems the Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show has cemented its place as a destination show that has endured for all these years. The Town of Indian Lake, sponsor of the show, has made every effort possible to insure that dealers and visitors will have a wonderful experience. There will be clearly designated parking lots throughout the town, a large handicapped parking area at the show and a number of shuttle buses will keep customers moving freely and rapidly from vehicles to the show. Different organizations in the town will offer food, entertainment and tailgate spaces around the area to add to the overall appeal for visitors.
If customers want to have a great lunch at the show, there will be food available at different locations on the grounds, and the entertaining Adirondack Fiddlers will be performing at the show throughout the day to add to the festivities. There will be a reenactment camp complete with cannon set up near the entrance to the show.
The Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show will feature a vast array of rustic furniture in native woods of willow, cedar, hickory, birch and pine. In addition, there will be sporting arts, taxidermy, antlers, fish mounts, antique firearms, Native American art, camp blankets, fishing rods, creels, lures and decoys. As the visitors walk through the show, they will be treated to displays of Mission furnishing, Black Forest carvings, American Folk Art, hooked rugs, textiles, canoes, skiffs and probably even an outboard motor boat or two. Dont miss it!
Among those returning to the show since its very first year will be Magoun Bros. of Maine with a vast array of taxidermy and some of the finest furnishing for camp or lodge available. Also, appearing for the 16th year will be Ross Bros. of Massachusetts offering a variety of boats and canoes, paddles, fishing, and camp antiques in one of the most interesting displays on the show grounds. Christibys of Michigan, a hit at the show since its inception, will not disappoint attendees once again with a huge display of fine hickory, art work, hunting and fishing artifacts, and more items than space here allows.
The one day event will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday September 15 for a general admission of $8.
