Annual antiques show reaches double figures

June 8, 2013 by  

Anybody whose dad is something of an antiques buff might want to take him to the 10th Annual Sagtikos Manor Antiques and Collectibles Show this coming Father’s Day.

The event is to feature over 30 vendors who will be selling antique versions of everything from tools to jewelry. The Friends of the Manor Gardens will also be having a plant sale the same day, proceeds of which go to supporting the grounds of the estate.

Guests will also be able to meet Long Island resident and author Laura Euler, who wrote ‘The Glasgow Style’ and whose second book ‘Arts and Crafts Embroidery’ will be released on June 28th. Euler will be signing books purchased by guests. There will also be a special tour on the day, focused on some of the antiques that make up part of the manor’s collection.

Sagtikos Manor is located in Bay Shore, New York on Long Island. It was founded in 1692 after Stephanus Van Cortlandt bought the land from a local Native American tribe. The land was purchased by Jonathan Thompson in 1758 and remained within the family until 1985. In 2002, it was purchased by Suffolk County so that the manor could be preserved.

Organizers for events at sites like these often turn to printing companies for cost-effective advertising. Flyers and promotional posters are a good way to get the word out about an event, and they can be distributed all over Long Island in areas near Bay Shore or even in towns a bit farther away, like Smithtown or Levittown.

The general event requires a $3 admission fee, though it is free to children 12 or younger. The tour is available at an additional fee.
