INDIAN LAKE and BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE, N.Y. – The dates for the Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show are officially September 16–20, but more than a handful of dealers in Adirondack material were set up on Monday, greeting early bird shoppers and slowing down traffic at both locations.
At times cars were vying for a lone parking space while other motorists were stopping to let people cross the road. Through it all, visitors were having a grand time seeking a treasure of some sort or another.
Full size canoes were lined up, mounts hung on trees and also displayed on stands. Decoys seemed to be everywhere, baskets and back packs were abundant, ship models and boat paddles were plentiful, and various tools and animal traps were scattered about the displays.
Most of the merchandise is under some sort of tenting, both large and small, and the flaps go up early in the mornings and come down almost with the setting sun. And then the fun begins again the next day.
On Saturday and Sunday, September 19–20, more dealers will descend on Blue Mountain Lake, site of the wonderful Adirondack Museum, where an antiques show will be in progress from 10 am to 5 pm each day. The show will open officially on Friday, the 18th, from 3 to 6 pm, for a special benefit preview.
