Three times a year, Renninger's hosts the Antique and Collectors
Exravaganzas at Kutztown. These shows features hundreds of
dealers from all over the country. Since 1975 the Extravaganzas have been a meeting place for dealers and
collectors from all over the world to buy and sell among themselves and to
the general public. The shows are held every April, June, & September on the
last full Thursday, Friday, & Saturday of the month. The show grounds are behind
Renninger's Antique & Farmer's Market in Kutztown, PA. Many exhibitors
set up shop outdoors, under tents, and in the two large pavilions. The
pavilions are 60 feet wide by 350 feet long. The Indoor
Antique Market and the Indoor Farmer's Market are also open during the Extravaganza. You will find the
Extravaganza a truly unique experience.
The main Extravaganza field opens at 10 am on Thursday. If you are
coming on Thursday you may want to arrive early. The Indoor Antiques
Market opens at 8 am. The permanent merchants always bring in
special merchandise for the Extravaganzas. At 10 am the field opens
and all exhibitors may begin selling. The buyers will rush in followed by
trucks and cars of exhibitors to the non reserved
spaces. Many of the
dealers are meeting customers for whom they have made special
purchases. Unlike internet selling customers will get to touch and closely
examine merchandise they are interested in purchasing. Although
customers have been in mind for certain merchandise dealers will sell to
anyone. You are encourage to ask questions and learn about the
merchandise. Most antiques dealers have a passion for what they are
selling. Although you may see many people rushing about from dealer to
dealer you may consider taking your time. So much is missed in the rush.
If you are looking for specifics, by all means ask. Most exhibitors have
merchandise in many other locations and can not carry all their items with
them. Also, many dealers may have different merchandise for different shows. Don't underestimate the vast network of antique dealers. They are
not opposed to referring you to someone else. The hours for Friday and
Saturday are 8 AM to 5 PM both days. Don't worry about missing
everything by not shopping Thursday. Many dealers don't even put some
of their items out until Friday. Saturday morning usually starts with an
addition of 100 to 200 new exhibitors, replacing some that have moved
on. Each day is a different and unique experience.
Dress for all weather. The show runs rain or shine. Pack a bag so you
can shed or put clothing on. And above all, wear comfortable shoes.
You will be doing a lot of walking.
