With already 225 dealers signed up, “we’re looking at the largest show we’ve ever had,” said Michael Green of Fairground Shows NY. The Antiques Fair gained additional exposure recently, when the stars of PBS show “Market Warriors” filmed an entire segment at last August’s show at the fairgrounds. The segment aired on Feb. 18. With such an extensive list of dealers from around the Northeast expected, the Antiques Fair offers a huge variety of items. Furniture, post cards, glassware, tools linens, records, paper, coins, toys and smalls are some of the wares that will be for sale. More than 90 percent of the exhibi-

tors specialize in antiques and older collectibles, said Green. Attendance continues to grow each year at the event. About 5,000 people went through the gates last year. If the weather cooperates, more are expected this weekend, he commented. The event takes place both in the fairground’s buildings and outdoors, and is held rain or shine. In addition to antiques for sale, several dealers will also provide appraisals for customers’ antiques. The Antiques Fair features about a dozen different food vendors, free parking, and camping facilities for those staying overnight. Leashed pets will also be welcome. A weekend ticket, which is good for unlimited re-entries, is $3 per person. Admission for seniors 65 and older is $2; children under 14 are admitted free.
