Bouckville 2012 - Pictorial Review

This year's trek to the bucolic town of Bouckville 
for the annual Madison Bouckville Antique Extravaganza
proved to be extra special as I shared the experience 
with my sister Lynn.
 Through a stroke of luck we were able to find last minute
 accommodations at a lovely B & B close by... 
...which allowed us to extend our shopping 
 to a full three day girls gone wild adventure!

I took hundreds of photos... are some from our first day...last Tuesday.

We found some of those olive buckets which are so popular now
 but they were a bit too pricey for me.

We visited with our friends Marianne and Mike 
(MM Antiques and Collectibles)
 The Carriage Place, Brockport, NY
They shared a tent with another of their dealer friends and had wonderful country primitives...all displayed so beautifully.

This scrapbook was filled with boxing related photos and ephemera.

In the Butternut Hill field, we once again visited Vicky Potter
 in her beautiful booth.

I can never walk away empty handed
 from her pretty vintage treasures and gorgeous vignettes.

Lynn and I  met up with Judi from The 1829 Farmhouse
 and her lovely interior designer friend Taylor.
 We shared lunch and some good conversation before we all set off to hunt for more treasures.

More pictures to come of days 2 and 3!

We returned to the lake Thursday night 
and family started arriving on Friday.
Dad had all four of his children together here for a long weekend 
and some of his grandchildren too!

 Some are still with us and it has been very busy but tons of fun!
Next week my niece and nephew are off to college...
...can't believe how fast the summer has gone!

What a busy lady you are. Love the photos of all the wonderful antiques. I would have gone into information overload, looking at all the booths.
Loved the 'Sister Doll' I have one just like it that I want to sell.

Hi Laura, Madison Bouckville is one of my favourite shows here in the East. Not far from The Canadian border near Albany, it is somewhat attainable for me! I have attended two years in a row, but missed out this time as we were away...Great fun, isn't it? Your photos are great, love the olive baskets too! Hope you are enjoying this beautiful summer! N.xo

Hi Laura,
How lovely that you could have your sister along for all the fun. Judging by the photos you had a ball. I'm anxious to see more. And what treasures did you bring home with you?

It's so nice that you could all be at the lake with your dad. It's my first summer in ions away from Upstate NY. It all makes me so homesick. Fondly, Marjorie

oh man! oh man! oh man!

Barbara said...

I hope our paths will cross at Bouckville some year! I recognize a few of the photos, but most of them not - it's fun to see all those treasures through someone else's eyes. I bought a few things from Vicki - lovely stuff!

Michelle Palmer said...

I grew up 20 miles east of Madison Bouckville. The antiques are amazing in the Mohawk Valley Region... Central Leatherstocking Region...
I LOVE to see your photographs. The treasures that make you smile and a familiar style. :)
If you happen to be near the Westmorland exit of the NYS Thruway, there is an antique co-op in a rustic barn. Great treasures~
Thank you for sharing so many wonderful photographs!
So glad you're enjoying family :)

Sea Witch said...

Wow, what fantastic finds. I could easily spend someone else's fortune there.

Kristie said...

WOW! There sure are a lot of wonderful items there! I love the white dishes and the chest with all the drawers! I could seriously drop some change here! HAH :)

French said...

OMG please tell me you bought all of those flags and bunting???? I LOVE it all! Missed you last Saturday for dinner, but we will do it again in Beaune! xxoo~ A

As I sit here drooling over all the goodness I am hoping Lynn enjoyed herself!! Such a fun thing for sisters to do together!
How great for your dad to have all that family around.

Priscilla said...

It was fun visiting this market with you.
I would really love to know how much the asking price for these items were. It would help me in deciding what to buy when I shop.
