We’re open regular hours today, 10-6
It’s almost the first Friday of the month and you know what that means? Owego’s Art Walk from 5-8 on Friday, May 5th!
We at Early Owego will featured our own Jim Mead, with his Spanish Barrel Piano and Ithaca Gem Roller Organ; both totally restored and sounding incredible! We will be open until 8 pm.
Check here for a list of events throughout the evening, including live entertainment, food, demonstrations, and of course, art!
May Day….the title conjures up images of the May pole and brightly colored ribbons, the beginning of warmer weather, and the blossoming of Spring flowers.
But did you know the real history behind May Day, aka International Workers’ Day? It started with worker solidarity and protest, and ended with a nationwide strike for the 8-hr. work day.
And while the May pole ribbon ceremony is still celebrated throughout the world, it’s a stark comparison to it’s true history.
And with it comes all Owego has to offer!
We recently had the 1st Friday Art Walk of the season with much success! The Art Walk is a staple in Owego, which highlights music, art, and food within the town. Next Art Walk will be Friday, May 5th from 5-8 pm.
Another event in Owego is Farm to Fork, which takes place every Thursday evening from mid-June to September. It features fresh produce and other products from local farmers, along with local chefs cooking up dishes using those fresh ingredients for visitors to enjoy! Music and entertainment are also featured throughout the evening.
And who can forget the 37th annual Strawberry Festival, which takes place this year June 17-18!
So plan your summer days to come visit Owego, NY; it’s the small town, with big events!
The 35th Million Dollar Antique Show, put on by the Binghamton Sertoma Club, is taking place this weekend, April 21-23 2017 at the SUNY Broome Ice Center.
As always, hundreds of dealers will be participating, along with free workshops on Saturday, 4/22 with a paid admission!
Whether you’re a dealer, a collector, or just looking for something to do, make sure to check out this yearly event!
Happy Music Monday!
This Monday’s artist is Postmodern Jukebox. If you’ve never heard of or seen them, you’ll become an instant fan; if you have, then enjoy one of their most popular renditions of All About that Bass.
Myself and the owner of Early Owego Antique Center saw them in concert a couple years back in Ithaca, NY and let me tell you, they were amazing; if they’re in town near you, we highly suggest checking them out!
Asheford Institute of Antiques conducted an informal poll/survey of the antique trends for 2016, focusing on three different age group business proprietors; (20-38), (38-58), and (58-78).
If you’re a dealer, this could be very valuable information when stocking your space or online shop. For the collector, maybe branch out from your usual wares and look out for one or more of these trends!
The best thing about antiques is there’s no set trend you need to follow; collect what you love and what you’re drawn to, and most of all…have fun with it!
Attention Early Owego dealers ONLY!
Spring has sprung, so why not come in on Tues. 4/11 from 10-5 to spruce up your booth? This is a great time to take advantage of cleaning, filling in, and moving inventory around in your booth while the store is closed to the public.
