The Ticonderoga Historical Society has expanded the offerings of its annual Summer A’Fair, which will take place at the Hancock House from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, August 10.
Each year the Historical Society presents a bake sale featuring an array of home-baked treats, as well as a “white elephant” sale of gently used goods, along with a vendor area featuring high-quality craft, household and one-of-a-kind items.
“This year, we have some special vendors who have raised our profile above that of a simple yard sale,” said THS President Bill Dolback. “Joining us will be a vendor with a fine collection of American history books that highlight the French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars.”
Also on hand will be regional history writer Maury Thompson, who will conduct a political collectible show and sale. “Come to buy or simply to look and talk about political history with Thompson, who covered 12 area congressional races during his career as a reporter for The Post-Star,” said Dolback.
Thompson also will have a sampling of old Adirondack postcards and vintage theater programs for sale. 50 percent of proceeds from the sale will be contributed to the Ticonderoga Historical Society.
