Antique show takes to the Streets of Gettysburg

Antique show takes to the Streets of Gettysburg

More than 120 antique dealers and collectors from the North and the South will converge on Gettysburg, May 19, for the 45th annual Gettysburg Outdoor Antique Show.

Sprawling out from Gettysburg’s historic Lincoln Square, the antique event is billed as a “buyers and sellers” paradise, with high quality antiques and collectibles. Items range from primitive cupboards, sideboards, benches, farm tables, and wooden boxes, to lamps, coins, pattern glass, art glass, Depression-era glass, and ironstone. You will also find clocks, gold jewelry, rings, pictures, pocket knives, bottles, old toys, crocks, jugs, old linens, lace, dolls, pocket watches, old guns, holiday collectibles, postcards, and country farm items.

“This is a great semi-annual tradition in Gettysburg,” said John Angstadt, the event’s organizer. “Dealers, collectors and casual buyers all enjoy the Gettysburg Outdoor Antique Show.”

The event is held on Carlisle, Chambersburg, Baltimore and York streets, along with Lincoln Square, all in Historic Downtown Gettysburg. The show - held rain or shine - starts at 7 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m.

The proceeds from this semi-annual event continue to support the community activities of the Gettysburg Area Retail Merchants Association. The fall show will be held September 22, 2012.
