(ABC 6 News) – This weekend, people got the chance to stock up on some treasures at the Olmsted County Fairgrounds.

The annual Olmsted County Gold Rush Antique Show and Market event returned for its 49th year.

Vendors sold various antiques, vintage goods, and art, along with other products in its flea market.

Dealers traveled all across the country to be there.

Kasson resident Helen Leqve, 99, said she’s been going to events like this for as long as she can remember.

"I really look forward to this. You meet a lot of people and with those people, ‘What are they selling? What are they buying?’ Nobody knows, they don’t either," Leqve said.

Townsend Shows put on the event. Organizers said this event is one of the largest antique shows in the Midwest.
