Since 1962, Shupp’s Grove Antique Market has been a regular weekend feature in the state of Pennsylvania. It is becoming rarer and rarer to find antique markets like this that have been running for so many decades, and it speaks to the community spirit of the people of St Reinholds that the Shupp’s Grove Antique Market continues its success year after year. It is thanks to everyone involved that it is such a popular antique market; from the friendly and knowledgeable vendors to the excellent food stalls that pop up, making it a great weekend event for the whole family.
Shupp’s Grove Antique Market runs every weekend from spring through to autumn, with the addition of two “Extravaganzas” in June and September, and it takes pretty bad weather for the schedules to be altered. Hardened shoppers usually come prepared with waterproofs and umbrellas, as the weather can be a little unpredictable here! The location of this antique market is excellent – spacious and green so that the outdoors can be enjoyed in fine weather, and in an area of the town where antique shops have sprung up, so collectors have the best of both worlds and double the chance to find that one of a kind item for their collections.
The vendors at Shupp’s Grove Antique Market provide a lovely variety of items for shoppers. Many do specialize in antique and vintage goods, which means that the odds of finding rare and coveted antiques are higher, though prices can be a little steep. No wonder why this beautiful outdoor antique & collectibles market is known as “the Picker’s market, where real deals still happen”! However, prices do vary from stall to stall, so this is a market that is worth strolling through before deciding on your purchase.
The atmosphere at Shupp’s Grove Antique Market is always relaxed and friendly. This is in part because many of the vendors and shoppers have acquaintances stretching back many years! Therefore, these weekend markets provide the perfect excuse for a chat. Of course, if you want to keep the chat focused on the antiques, vendors will be more than happy to oblige you.
