Lovers of antiques, collectibles and one-of-a-kind items will enjoy the Antiques and Collectibles Sales at Historic Hanna's Town. This longstanding community tradition brings together 100-180 vendors in a quaint and historic setting and is western Pennsylvania's oldest show of its kind. The staff, volunteers and vendors strive to plan and promote an atmosphere of friendship, camaraderie and fun, along with good buying and selling opportunities.
The gate opens at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday and the market continues through early afternoon, although many vendors are set up by 1 p.m. Saturday and sell that afternoon. There is parking on-site. Admission is $3 per car. Parking revenues are divided equally between the Forbes Road Volunteer Fire Department and the Westmoreland County Historical Society, who administers Historic Hanna's Town for Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation.
The selling vendors pay a fee to set up their wares at the Antiques and Collectibles Market, with these proceeds benefiting the Historical Society's preservation and interpretation efforts at Historic Hanna's Town, the site of the first English courts west of the Allegheny Mountains. The town was attacked and burned at the close of the Revolutionary War by a raiding party of Indians and their English allies. Historic Hanna's Town is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Antiques and Collectibles Markey is held the second Sunday of the month May through October. The public is cordially invited to browse for bargains, enjoy a variety of food booths and support local history preservation as well as a local fire department at the Antiques & Collectibles Sales at Historic Hanna's Town. Sorry, no pets are permitted at this show.
A variety of health and safety guidelines will be in place including social distancing, encouraging face masks, one-way aisles, and using hand sanitizer. Additional dates for the Antiques and Collectibles Market include July 12, August 9, September 13, and October 11.
