OSWEGO, NY – It’s time to mark your calendars for the annual Heritage Foundation of Oswego County Antique Show held Harborfest Weekend.
The event will be held in the historic Oswego YMCA Armory at 265 W. First St. on July 27 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and July 28 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Show-goers will find unique antiques being sold by dealers from Central New York and beyond showcasing furniture, jewelry, collectibles, glassware, art, kitchen tools, and much, much more.
Many of the dealers are also interested in buying and when available will evaluate pieces brought by the public.
There is adjacent free parking, and the event is on the trolley route so it’s easily accessible from any of the Harborfest events and designated parking areas.
Admission is $3 per day with all proceeds to benefit the Heritage Foundation of Oswego County.
Food and drink will be provided by the Oswego Sunrise Rotary Club.
New this year, Heritage Foundation will operate a consignment booth at the show.
This is a great way to downsize and put some money back in your pocket at the same time.
Items can be donated or consigned, with Heritage Foundation receiving 25 percent of the sale price.
Items must be at least 50 years old and in saleable condition.
If interested, please contact the Heritage Foundation office at 315-342-3354 by July 24 to arrange pick-up of items.
Show coordinator Austin Wheelock believes the event has more to offer than just antiques.
“Being one of the only indoor attractions during Harborfest, it allows visitors an opportunity to beat the July heat or escape the rain and become immersed in different periods of our history,” he noted.
So if you are an antique aficionado or just a curious Harborfest visitor looking for a break from the outdoor activities, this event should appeal to all.
Heritage Foundation of Oswego County, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote and protect the historic and architectural landmarks of Oswego County.
