Autumn Antiquing in New York State

As soon as the magnificent patchwork quilt of color spreads across New York’s hillsides, it’s time to go hunting -- for antiques! Whether you’re searching for furniture, an addition to your vintage toy collection, a log cabin quilt, or just want to take a trip back in time, autumn antiquing in New York always satisfies.

Throughout the state, communities celebrate everything from foliage, apples and pumpkins, to the heritage of our ancestors. Antique shops far and wide open their doors to visitors and often extend their hours during this festive time of year. The Hudson Valley and Catskills offer shops with an extraordinary range of treasures. With such rich history and close proximity to New York City, the area draws antique dealers from around the world and is often mentioned in home decorating and collector’s magazines.

In the Capital-Saratoga area, the large warehouse and co-op shops located on several downtown streets carry fine architectural rarities, furniture, jewelry and art from many of the state’s first settlers. The lilting Adirondacks surprise antique hunters with the bounty of shops loaded with collectibles. Historical communities like Watertown and Sackett’s Harbor in the Thousand Islands Seaway region balance their tours of days-gone-by with a chance to shop for authentic souvenirs.

If you enjoyed the enormous summer antique festival in Bouckville, you know that antique appreciation lives on in the Central Leatherstocking region’s surrounding shops. Schoharie hosts a show in mid-September with more than 100 dealers; around the same time, Springfield offers an “Antique Appraisal Day” at Hyde Hall. Heading into the Finger Lakes, you’ll find antiques, souvenirs, crafts, art, and jewelry in boutiques, small shops, and restored Victorians throughout the region, in towns and villages such as Hammondsport, Skaneateles and Seneca Falls. In the Greater Niagara region, Albion and Wyoming are just two of the many historical destinations where you can shop and tour gas-lit districts of times past with antique shows and sales throughout the season. If you’re in Jamestown during the Busti Apple Festival, sip some cider while watching demonstrations of 19th-Century processing techniques. Like all areas of New York State, the antiques are nearby, waiting for you to dust them off and give them a new life!
