Antiques, home shows on the schedule this weekend in St. Lawrence County


North country residents interested in antiques and a home, garden and business expo can attend two shows this weekend that will benefit either the St. Lawrence County Historical Association or the county Chamber of Commerce.

The Historical Association will have its antiques and artisans show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Canton’s McKenney Middle School, 99 State St.

“This is our 24th anniversary event and we have 24 vendors,” said J. Susanne Longshore, interim executive director. “We have almost 100 items for the silent auction already.”

Admission is $4. Children 10 and younger are admitted free. The annual event typically raises $5,000 for the association. Lunch will be served for $6.

Raffle prizes include a hand-glazed pottery dish made by Roxanne Locy, a framed photograph of last summer’s 150th Gettysburg re-enactment taken by Dennis Barr and a membership to the association.

The Really Big Show, the Chamber’s sixth annual spring event, will be held from noon to 8 p.m. Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Clarkson University’s Cheel Arena, Potsdam. Admission is $3.

Nearly 80 businesses and vendors are expected along with live entertainment. Some vendors will offer food, wine and crafts.

Highlights this year include a “broadband versus slap shot challenge” for children 14 and younger, sponsored by Slic Network Solutions. The activity will use street hockey equipment and baseball radar to let children compare their slap shot speeds with different Internet speeds. Prizes will be awarded based on age divisions.

A representative of the state comptroller’s office will provide information on unclaimed funds.

Demonstrations include a paddlers workshop with canoe and kayak builder Bill Sommerfield and a chair-caning demonstration by artisan Renee Baxter.

Musical performances Friday include Michael Welch and Christian Parker from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. and father-and-son act King Kong, which is Andy and Geoff Van Duyne, from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. On Saturday, Andy Van Duyne and Mary Ann Casale will perform from 10:30 a.m. to noon, followed by David Wells from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
