Hundreds of antique enthusiasts show up for Gold Rush

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- The annual Gold Rush Antique event attracts collectors from all around the country, and you can catch it at Graham Park in Rochester from May 9th to the 11th.

Items for sale range anywhere from fifty cents all the way to $100,000.

One highlight of the event is the rare book collector.  He has books like the one titled Surrealism to Picasso that is signed by Picasso himself.  It is valued at $40,000.  The collector's various books include autographed collections like one by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

In the book room is a parlor chair from Paris.  Created in 1880, it converts into a birthing chair.

The wide range of antiques and collectibles keeps  a particular group of collectors from Milwaukee coming every few years.

"You can find a lot of museum quality pieces something you don't see in Wisconsin, some things you guys have here that we have never seen before.  Items that, you know, we only see in the books in Wisconsin are things that we have actually seen and touched in person here in Minnesota," says Angela Antinucci.
