Comments fair manager Gaglio, “The popularity, fast pace and fresh merchandise at many one-day shows has prompted us to fulfill the request of dozens of dealers to create a one-day, low cost, highly advertised event in a location that is convenient, accessible and collector rich. The Berkshire Farm Center facility fills all those requirements for exhibitors plus has a one level show floor, numerous load
indoors, air-conditioning and convenient parking. Come join us for what promises to be a wonderful show.”

Additionally, the nearby town of New Lebanon, NY, is celebrating its bicentennial this year, and the event's steering committee is interested in using this milestone as a method of stimulating economic development while supporting local businesses and organizations in the area.

Holders of the Passport must visit at least 12 of the 24 town destinations included in the document to be eligible to participate in a raffle that will take place Aug. 19 at the New Lebanon Community Picnic.

"Passports can be obtained at the Town Hall, the town library, the post office and at several of the participating businesses and organizations and jis ust another part of our promotion for the show!" says Gaglio.
