Welcome to The Genesee Country Antique Dealers Association (GCADA) Website. GCADA is a nonprofit membership organization that was founded in 1948 and is based in Rochester, New York. To become a member of GCADA a dealer must be recommended to the Board of Directors as a bonafide antique dealer providing antique objects of the highest quality. A review of the proposed dealer includes knowledge of their antiques, presentation of their merchandise as well as their integrity as a dealer. Upon approval, the dealer is invited to become a member of GCADA which requires they agree to subscribe to our code of ethics. It is the mission of GCADA to require its members to meet a high standard of ethics and integrity in order to best serve collectors and purchasers of antique items. Members of GCADA are geographically distributed throughout western New York State, extending from Syracuse to Buffalo. .
You will find dealers of our organization to be competent and able to provide education, assistance and referral for buying, selling, and appraisal of antique items. Our dealer/members are available for one-on-one searching, consultation, or just a friendly chat.
GCADA sponsors educational and cultural events on antiques that are open to the public. Check the Events calendar for upcoming lectures.
