An Antiquer’s Paradise

When you visit the Finger Lakes region you may notice antique shops on just about every other corner. Whether you are an antique connoisseur, or just looking to turn something old into something new, there will be plenty of treasures to discover while browsing through these shops. The visitors bureau in most towns provide pamphlets with listings of Finger Lakes antique dealers, but you can access a lot of the information on the internet as well.

If you’re an antiquer who enjoys the thrill of the hunt, then the Finger Lakes 50 Mile Long Garage Sale is for you! The sale stretches down Route 90 (not the throughway) from Montezuma on the eastern shore of Cayuga lake to Homer, NY and typically takes place July 24th & 25th from 8 AM to 4 PM,  rain or shine. Anyone who lives along the route can participate, meaning that there could be hundreds of undiscovered antiques waiting to be found! As you’re driving down Route 90, be prepared to slow down for pedestrians because the area can become congested. If you have any questions about this year’s sale you can call the Cortland County Convention and Visitor Bureau at (800) 859-2227.
