The owners of a downtown Corydon business will host the Indian Creek Antique Show on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Harrison County Fairgrounds in Corydon.
Joe Poe, who owns Old Town Store with his wife, Lindsey, said the event will take place, rain or shine, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. However, for $5, patrons can enter during "early bird" admissions from 6 to 8 a.m.
Merchandise offered at the show must be at least 30 years old, collectible items and no longer produced. (Reference materials and restoration supplies are exempt.)
"We also allow vendors who specialize in re-purposed pieces, as long as the original re-purposed piece follows the age rules," Joe said.
Vendor space is available, with the fee varying from $40 to $100, depending on location at the fairgrounds.
"These prices are cheap for an antique show," Joe said. "If we can really build this show, it will be a huge shot in the arm" to the downtown Corydon area.
The Poes have considered hosting a different kind of show, possibly a flea market, in the spring.
"We would like to get it where it's a monthly show," Joe said. "We love Corydon, love the history behind it."
