The villages of Madison and
Bouckville NY combine to create an antique oriented community
located along U.S. Route 20 (also known as part of the historic
Cherry Valley Turnpike), just south of the NYS Thruway. It is well
known for great antique auctions and many fine shops & antique
co-ops that operate year round. It has also been home for many
decades to the largest Antique Event in New York State, the Madison
Bouckville Antique Week, when
collectively thousands of antique dealers converge on the area
This coming August, we will
celebrate 26 successful years promoting and participating in
the Madison Bouckville Antique Week. Our many vendors are proud to
offer a wonderful selection of fine antiques and desirable
collectibles, featuring various styles of furniture, china,
glassware, architecture, jewelry, art, advertising, primitives, and
so much more.
Quaker Acres West is owned
and operated by the Antinore Family, which has been involved in
promoting shows and has been in the antique business for over 40
years. Our Father started collecting bottles in the early 1970’s, which
soon led in to the obsession so many of us enjoy. Having been
vendors for many years prior to promoting antique shows, we have the
knowledge and experience to meet the needs of both buyers and
sellers. This understanding has enabled us to attract a wide variety
of colorful and unique antique vendors from across the United States
evening at our field just hours before vendors arrive.
Please make plans to join us
in beautiful Madison Bouckville NY next August.
"Over ten years ago, we were grousing to a dealer
friend about how muddy the previous show was at Madison Bouckville.
She said we should try Quaker Acres West…so we did.
The next year found us in the field fighting with
our own tent and all that tiresome work. Not being foolish, we came
to realize that the big tents on Quaker Acres offer a very
comfortable venue, so the following year we were under the red and
white canvas roof. We have been there ever since.
Now the trip to Quaker Acres West every August is
like making a trip to visit friends and family! The atmosphere is
one of congenial visiting and selling. We have made wonderful
friends there – many of them are more than just repeat customers! We
share recipes, we share stories of kids and family, we share
opinions on the state of the world, solving all the country’s
problems…and we do all this while slappin’ and wrappin’ merchandise!
We have indeed found a welcoming home for a
glorious week in Madison County!
