If you like taking a look into the past, and even collecting some of those treasured items, this is your week - It's the Madison-Bouckville Antique Week.

This is a HUGE event whether you just like to look at and browse through antiques and collectibles or if you're an avid buyer of treasures from our history. The Madison-Bouckville Antique Week boosts it's the biggest antique event in our state, and we can see why. This event brings more than 2,000 different vendors to the area with their own selection of collectibles and goodies.

And it's not just huge because of all the vendors on-site, but it's huge because it runs the length of Route 20 between Bouckville and Madison. You'll see all the tents and areas roped off along Route 20, with all the antique dealers and booths set up. You'll also see areas to get a delicious snack or meal (you have to refuel after all that shopping and browsing, right?!).

And the great thing about Madison-Bouckville Antique Week is that the event is free. You don't have to pay to get into one of the show areas and to see everything the vendors have - You just, show up! Of course, you'll want to bring money in case you find that perfect treasure you need to take home with you.

From old books and magazines in our area, to antique farm equipment, kitchen appliances, and everything in between, you never know what you'll find during antique week.

This year marks the 47th Madison-Bouckville Antique Week. It runs now through Sunday, August 19th, from 8am to 6pm each day. You can get more details on this fun, treasure-hunting event including a map of the layout (which really shows you how big this event is, if you haven't been to it before), by visiting: Madison-Bouckville.com

Make sure if you're going to do some antique shopping and browsing that you give yourself MORE than enough time. It's so easy to miss the perfect item, just because there's SO much to look at and take in. You want to give yourself enough time to slowly browse through everything, so you don't miss anything. Good luck out there, and happy hunting!
