Bouckville Antique Week off and running for vendors

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - This coming weekend is the big antique fest in Bouckville, where hundreds of vendors will pack the fields on Route 20 with their wares.

But for those who want to get a jump start, you'll see tents leading up to the fields all week packed with shop owners and hobbyists peddling antiques, such as furniture, postcards and dolls.

One woman has been selling for 12 years, and she remembers this show fondly, as it's always on her birthday. This year, Rosemary Wentz turns 83. She said her favorite part of the show is the storytelling among sellers and how nothing is thrown away.

"Because of the different purposes for the items we recycle, it keeps the Earth green," Wentz said. "We have fun recycling and giving other purposes to our items."

The official antique fest starts Thursday and runs through Sunday on Route 20 in Bouckville.
