Long Lake Annual Antiques & Vintage Sale Returns July 5th-7th

The Long Lake Antiques & Vintage Sale enters its 28th year in 2013. This year’s vendors feature the return of many long time favorites, including IO Books, The Granary, John J Ryan Antiques, Buyers Paradise, and Casey’s Antiques. Browse unique items including postcards, dinnerware, paintings, furniture, jewelry, and porcelain.

Don’t miss Friday’s Preview and Reception at 5pm – 7pm featuring light refreshments and live acoustic music by Alex Smith. Alex Smith grew up in Long Lake, NY, in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. The son of a boatbuilder/writer/banjo player and a historian, Smith was immersed in folk tradition from a very young age. Around the house, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan were constantly present on the airwaves.

Smith began writing and playing traditional folk songs at the age of 12 or 13, and has not stopped since. The community Smith grew up in is steeped in tradition, and also offers plenty of material for contemporary songs. The work of Adirondack folk legends Dan Berggren, Chris Shaw, and Peggy Lynn were extremely influential, as was Canadian artist Stan Rogers.
