48 years later, Spring Antiques in Schoharie still going strong

Nearly 100 antique vendors from across New York State and beyond are on the road, heading to Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association’s 48th annual Spring Antiques in Schoharie.

The two-day antique show and sale will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 13, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at Schoharie Central School, located at 136 Academy Drive in Schoharie. 

Featuring a country kitchen with homemade food and baked goods for sale, admission is $7, with free onsite parking available. 

The nonprofit association uses the funds it raises at the Spring Antique Show, as well as a fall antique show, train show and holiday craft bazaar held on Depot Lane, to operate the Schoharie Valley Railroad Museum, the 1743 Palatine House Museum (Schoharie County’s oldest building), and the Children’s Summer Theater Program.

“Our volunteers work hard to preserve Schoharie’s history, and this is our biggest annual fundraiser,” said Ruth Anne Wilkinson, president of Schoharie Colonial Heritage Association and antique show manager. “Antique dealers are spread out around the school – it’s really something to experience.”

In addition to managing the antique shows, Wilkinson is a real estate agent for Century 21 and also owns Generations, A Vintage Consignment Shop, located at 397 Main St. in Schoharie.

Antique dealers – some of whom have been doing the show for decades – come from all over, and continue to participate because they know Wilkinson from years of wheeling and dealing in the antiques world. Collectors are drawn back not only for the quality pieces, but also the beauty of the Schoharie Valley.

“There really aren’t that many antique shows anymore, and so many of our dealers look forward to this event,” Wilkinson said. “Money raised goes right back into our local community, which is so important to all of us.”
