Good for: Solo
Room after room after room of old stuff. That's how I see it.
On the other hand, my wife thinks this place is a mecca for antiquers. She loves browsing through old photos and books and jewelry and fantasizing where an old table might go in the house.
If you like antiques, then this is the place... 5500 square yards of space dedicated to old stuff.
Each persons "contributions" are arranged in a little booth area with shelves and display cases for the small stuff. Most of it is touchable.
So come on out here and take a look. You just might find that unique something you never knew you needed.
(luckily for me, we were on vacation and had no room to get anything big or expensive).Related to:

Hopefully the Government will stay out of their business and let them sell tax free cigarettes and gas. New York state wants to sock it to everyone here.more
