Plattekill to host first Antique Show

Roxbury — Plattekill Mountain has announced that the resort will host its first ever antique show at the mountain on September 24 and 25 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.  

Admission to the event is free. Come and browse a variety of items from a bygone era. Along with antique vendors, the event will also feature a variety of local food booths selling homemade pies, desserts, cheese, wine, and much more. 

The Plattekill staff will also be cooking up a variety of barbecue items on the deck.  Local musicians have also been asked to attend the show and the resort’s chair lift will be operating all weekend for scenic fall-foliage chair rides.

The antique show itself is the brainchild of Steve Coster of Second Wind Furniture in Hobart. Coster’s motivation to put together this event is his feeling that “the Catskills provided a central venue to help reach customers more in our area and to the north and south.” His main goal was to make the event large enough and varied enough to make the trip worthwhile for not only the antique-goers, but the whole family. 

While recent flood damage has played havoc with our local communities and dealer participants in several neighboring counties as well as Delaware County, the show must go on and attending vendors are excited about this first ever event.  They, as well as Coster and the mountain, hope that the event will provide an outlet for people to come and browse, relax and enjoy some time away by attending the event.  In an effort to help those communities that have been hit so hard, there will be an opportunity to make donations at the event to local flood relief.

“Perhaps, when folks from out of the area travel through our region and see for themselves the extent of the damages, they will be moved to help ease the plight,” hopes Coster.
