Dealers in high quality antiques from across the country are converging in the Adirondack wilderness for two events, the Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show in Indian Lake, held Wednesday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 18, and the Adirondack Museum Antiques Show and Sale, held Saturday, Sept. 17, and Sunday, Sept. 18. More than 100 dealers are expected to exhibit at two shows, held in the two mountain hamlets about 11 miles apart.
They’re expected to bring with them high-quality art, antiques, collectibles and other vintage items — much of it curated with a rustic Adirondack sensibility — including camp, cottage, Mission, and Old Hickory furniture; rare books; vintage boats; antique sporting goods; taxidermy; quilts; historical fine art and folk art; militaria; oriental rugs; Native American jewelry and artifacts; and much more.
Adirondack Mountains Antiques Show in Indian Lake
Dealers set up throughout the center of the hamlet of Indian Lake, either renting space in the yards of homeowners or at the main space, in the front yard of the town’s school, and along the road in the hamlet of Blue Mountain Lake. Although the show runs from Wednesday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 18, its dispersed nature means exhibitors set up and close at various times, based on the weather, crowds and other factors.
