Watkins Glen Racing Memorabilia
The 2nd annual Waverly's Attic event is a fundraiser for the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) and
will take place from 9am-5pm on Broad Street in Waverly, NY on August 9th.  The event will cause the Broad Street to be closed from Pennsylvania Ave to Waverly Street and be filled with street and food vendors, free children;s games and prizes, music, a Chinese auction, and many other things to do. A food court will also be setup to enjoy many food selections being served by the Railhouse Restaurant and many other food vendors.

All of these activities will be centered around a huge street auction that will start at noon and will include antiques, household goods, and even some rare local collectibles. Some of these items include a band drum marked "1901 - Waverly," a wooden box with "Waverly Sugar Bowl," a banner from the centennial celebration of Waverly, NY in 1954, milk bottles from Towanda, Elmira, and other localities, an Ingersoll Rand plate, and Lehigh Valley Railroad memorabilia. Antique furniture, tools, and other collectables will also be in this three hour auction - with a $500 valued Two Nights stay at a Marriott in NYC of your choice being the closing item for the day.

There is also a huge Chinese auction occurring in the SRAC lecture hall starting the week before during normal business hours and the drawing will be at the end of the Waverly's Attic event.The Chinese auction has over 150 hundred items to take a chance on and include gently used and brand new items, many books from the SRAC gift shop, a PRADA and Coach purse and two brand new Vera Bradley bags, gift certificates from area businesses, and many toys for the kids.
