Antiques hunters, collectors of unique and vintage items, and anyone looking for something fun to do on a Saturday in June will be happy to learn that Ros-Al Floral & Antiques will be hosting an Art, Wine Tasting, & Antiques in the Park event on June 29. The event will take place in and around Memorial park across from Carbondale’s City Hall beginning at 10:00 a.m. and ending at 6:00 p.m.
According to event organizer, Christopher Glinton, there will be over thirty different vendors of art, antiques, collectibles, and locally-made items at the event. “We have a great mixture of dealers coming, with twenty-five signed up so far and many more to come. Whether it’s antiques, art, appraisals, dolls, or even homemade jellies and jams, there’s going to be something for everyone,” said Mr. Glinton.
In addition to many familiar faces among the vendors committed to showcasing their wares at the event, there will also be dealers from as far away as upstate New York and Connecticut. For those interested in finding out an estimated value of something they already own, Winchester Auctioneers of South Sterling will be on hand from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. doing appraisals.
Representatives of Blueberry Hill Farm Greenhouses of Forest City will have a variety of plants for the home and garden on sale at the event and local businesses in the vicinity of the park will have special activities during the event as well.
Other fun activities also will take place during the event, including wine tasting featuring drinks from Capra Collina Winery of Blakely and Deep Roots Hard Cider of Sugar Run, PA. Tarot card readings at Ros-Al Floral & Antiques, horse and carriage rides through the streets of Carbondale, and live music beginning at noon on the rooftop of PersoNELLized Cakes and in front of City Hall are all scheduled.
The Carbondale Public Library will host a book and bake sale in front of the library during the event. In addition to tasty sweet treats from supporters of the library, hamburgers and hotdogs will be sold in front of City Hall to benefit the Pioneer City Christmas Ball Committee and a chicken barbeque will take place near City Hall starting at 3:00 p.m.
For the car enthusiast, the 570 Jeep’s Club will have vehicles on display at the event beginning at 10:00 a.m. 570 Jeep’s is a local volunteer non-profit Jeep club that is committed to promoting safe and responsible off-roading and outdoor recreation. Fireworks will take place at dusk at City Hall marking the end of the day’s activities.
Although the day for Art, Wine Tasting, & Antiques in the Park is rapidly approaching, Mr. Glinton stresses that there’s still time to participate. He encourages anyone interested in setting up a booth or table at the event to call him at (570) 906-2754 or (570) 785-5960 for information about how to take part as a vendor or craftsman.
Additional Art & Antiques in the Park events will take place on Saturday, August 3, on Main St. in Forest City in conjunction with the Trail Town Festival and on Saturday, August 17, in Carbondale’s Memorial Park as part of the Pioneer Nights community festival.
