Collectors gather in Moravia for Fillmore Auto Show and Flea Market

Sunday was a day for collectors of all kind at the 41st annual Fillmore Auto Show and Flea Market.

The event, held at Fillmore Glen State Park in Moravia, drew car collectors, antique collectors and even "junk" collectors, as Carl Brigham put it.

Brigham and his son Jeff had a booth set up for the flea market portion of the event. They had everything from car parts to old tools and even two antique bicycles. The elder Brigham said he has been collecting for over 50 years and likes to collect "anything I have knowledge about." The duo finds their treasures at auctions, garage sales, estate sales and sometimes through swapping with other collectors.

Richard Nye showed off his collection of World War II memorabilia at the flea market. Nye said he has been collecting for over 30 years simply because he likes history.

Among his collection is a German family's photo album, filled with well-preserved photos from a family trip to the Alps in the 1930s. Nye said he does not know the family pictured in the photos; he bought the album at an estate sale.
