36 years of showcasing quality antiques for sale
MUNCY – Once again the Muncy Historical Society sponsored a juried antique show that was held over the weekend at the Paul Geringer Social Hall in Muncy. From primitives to valuable collectibles, 14 dealers from Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio were on hand to help customers select a unique item for their home. “We focus on quality and product diversity with a broad-based appeal,” said Bill Poulton, fundraising chair for the show. Admission costs go towards the Muncy Heritage Park and Nature Trail project.
Barb and Neil Kemp from Pennsburg, PA said that they like coming to this show every year. “This has always been a good show for us,” they said. “We have been coming for ten years now.” They acquire most of their items, mainly primitives, from auctions and do about six to seven shows a year, including the Muncy show.
Previously it was held at the Hughesville Fairgrounds, but for the last two years it was held at Geringer Social Hall in Muncy proved to be a better location according to Linda Poulton, president of the Muncy Historical Society and author of Now and Then. “Our volunteers have a good time at this show,” she said, “and other organizations benefit too such as the fire company who rents us the building.”
Vendors and volunteers like to gather and meet at the event each year and have a good time. Friday night there was a reception and it was very well attended according to the volunteers. There was an impressive range of antiques from the 19th and 20th centuries including furniture, pottery, jewelry, glass, stoneware, porcelain and vintage quilts as well as Americana and military memorabilia. This is a long standing event for Muncy and something for everyone to enjoy.
