Historic Hanna’s Town will hold an Antiques & Collectibles Sale Sept. 9. This season’s final sale is set for Oct. 14.

Historic Hanna’s Town continues its 45th season of hosting its “Antiques & Collectibles Sale,” with the next event set for Sept. 9.

A tradition that began in 1974, the event provides buying and selling opportunities for lovers of antiques and collectibles and anyone seeking vintage items not typically available in traditional shops and stores.

The sale also helps to raise funds for the re-creation of Historic Hanna’s Town, according to a news release.

More than 100 vendors are expected to offer a variety of one-of-a-kind items covering a wide price range.

Gates open at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, with the market continuing through the early afternoon.

Some vendors set up by 1 p.m. Saturday and begin selling that afternoon, the release notes.

On-site parking fees of $3 per car are equally divided between the Salem Township Volunteer Fire Dept. No. 2 (Forbes Road) and the Westmoreland County Historical Society, which manages Historic Hanna’s Town for Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation, according to the release.

Vendors can set up for the day or weekend. Vendor fees benefit the Westmoreland County Historical Society’s education and preservation projects at Historic Hanna’s Town, a Revolutionary War period settlement and site of the first English courts west of the Allegheny Mountains.

The final sale of the year is set for Oct. 14, according to its website.

Historic Hanna’s Town is at 809 Forbes Trail Road near its intersection with Route 119, 3 miles north of Greensburg.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
