Antique lovers flock to Bouckville

About 1,000 dealers and thousands of antique lovers crowded Bouckville's annual antiques show on Aug. 15 and 16.

The 38th annual Madison-Bouckville Outdoor Antiques Show boasted collectible Americana including furniture, toys, quilts, clocks, silverware and much more as well as artifacts from across the world.

Various non-profits provided refreshments and drinks, with cold beverages in high demand thanks to clear skies and high temperatures.

Huge fields behind the show grounds offered free parking as well as free rides to the grounds on wagons pulled by restored antique tractors.

The annual show brought dealers from across the country to rural Central New York.

Carlos Osorio, from Toronto, brought a $4,500 early-20th century chandelier with rock crystal and amethyst.

The stones are "as old as the Earth," Osorio said.

Coa Schwab, of Berkshire, Mass., displayed a $5,500 16th-century plaque, possibly originally from a cabinet, he said. The plaque displays the Christian Annunciation and was Schwab's most valuable piece at the antiques show.

"I love European works," he said.
