BOUCKVILLE, N.Y. (WKTV) - If you are a lover of old things, the Madison-Bouckville Antique Show probably has something for you.

The show is in its 39th season. The doors opened on Friday for the early-bird buying special. The show opens to the public on Saturday.

It's an antique show of epic proportions. It fills an entire 100 acre field. Antique dealers fill 30 acres and 70 acres are for parking.

Dealers from around the world come to Bouckville for the show. Show director Jock Hangst says this year it is a buyers market. He says the value of antiques hasn't gone down, but the market has. "We feel it sort of bottoming it out this year," Hangst said.

Dealers say they come to the show to make money.

"That's what we are here for," said Gary Davis, an antiques dealer from North Tonawanda, NY. "We sell stuff and make people happy when they leave."

The Madison-Bouckville Antique Show runs through the weekend.
