(Ph. Michael Devine)Every week in August the sleepy towns of Madison and Bouckville, New York snap to life when 2,000 antiques dealers descend en masse for the annual Antique Week. Located in the stunning Finger Lakes region of western New York State, the event is truly a scavenger hunt—nothing so glam or polished as the very well known Brimfield Flea Market. Here one has the opportunity to ferret out some real treasures, for those of us with more dash than cash—all you need is a keen eye!
(Photos Michael Devine)I've gone for the last several years and it is consistently one of my favorite events of the summer. The setting is stunning—open, rolling valley vistas—and the accommodations and food are charming. It's a great mini-vacation from the city for me. Mark your calendars now; next year the show runs from August 10th through the 16th. For more information visit www.madison-bouckville.com.
