For the past 37 years the Binghamton Sertoma Club produced the Million Dollar Antique Show as a fundraiser to support Camp Sertoma, a local day camp for kids, as well as other charities supporting the Sertoma Mission pertaining to speech and hearing disabilities. Sadly, after the Show in 2019, the flames of enthusiasm to support the Show by the Club were doused and Binghamton Sertoma Club decided to discontinue the show.
Having dug its roots deeply into the Southern Tier of NY for support and sponsorships, as well as the antiquing community, the embers of this fundraising event have been rekindled. The Annual Antique Show now has a new name and a new mission. The show is now called the Binghamton Shriners Antique Show and the new mission is to primarily support the Shriners Hospital for Children in Springfield Mass., as well as reinforce local Shrine organizations in their charitable endeavors.
Chip Hunt, who has been involved with the Antique Show since its beginning in 1982 and promoter since 1995 and John Darrow, Mason and Shriner, long time member of the antiques community, local historian, and long standing dealer participating in this and other regional shows have reorganized the new Show. The dates of the Show are April 23-24, 2022. The Antique Show will occupy the same time slot , mid-April and will be held at the same location the SUNY Broome Ice Arena as in previous shows.
The show annually hosts 85 vendor booths occupied by quality vendors featuring a labyrinth of Estate Jewelry, Early American Furniture, Primitives, European and Asian Antiques Crystal, China, Porcelain, Pottery, Advertising, Textiles, Oriental Rugs, Coins, Watches, Postcards, Eclectic Oddities, Vintage Collectibles, plus much more.
