4 - PRO TIP:  Beat the Crowds & Arrive a Day or Two Early!

This tip works for the "normal vendors-only".  We've noticed that if you arrive early on Tuesday or Wednesday, you can ask if they'll be willing to extend their "Extravaganza Discount" to you.  More often than not, they DO!  So you can get ahead of the crowds and get a first look at many of the items being showcased for Extravaganza Weekend by arriving a day or so early.  It's still worth it to stay for the scheduled event since many additional vendors will arrive who only have stands on these special Adamstown PA Antiques weekends.
