Sprawling out from Gettysburg’s historic Lincoln Square, the antique event is billed as a “buyers and sellers” paradise, with high quality antiques and collectibles. Items range from primitive cupboards, sideboards, benches, farm tables, and wooden boxes, to lamps, coins, pattern glass, art glass, Depression-era glass, and ironstone. You will also find clocks, gold jewelry, rings, pictures, pocket knives, bottles, old toys, crocks, jugs, old linens, lace, dolls, pocket watches, old guns, holiday collectibles, postcards, and country farm items. Brand name pieces of Heisey, Cambridge, Fostoria, R.S. Prussia, Limoges, Haviland, Rockwood, Roseville, and carnival glass will also be featured.
The event is held on Carlisle, Chambersburg, Baltimore and York Streets, along with Lincoln Square, all in Historic Downtown Gettysburg. The show is held rain or shine.
In response to COVID-19, social distancing guidelines will be followed between the vendor tables. There will be about one parking space open between each vendor to enable and encourage social distancing. Individual hand sanitizer from Mason Dixon Distillery will be distributed to the vendors. Hand sanitizer stations will be placed in each quad of the square by the planters. Restrooms will be placed in the municipal parking lot on W. Middle St.
The proceeds from this semi-annual event continue to support the community activities of the Gettysburg Area Retail Merchants Association.
