The Pier Antique Show returns to Pier 94 this Saturday and Sunday, showcasing a stunning selection of antique and vintage merchandise by over 400 dealers. More than just a place for dealers and collectors, the biannual show is also a popular shopping destination for interior designers, celebrities, and anyone looking to redecorate their homes or update their wardrobes.

The items at the show come from the 1920s through the 1980s,including furniture, folk art, Asian antiquities, textile and ceramics, gemstones, and more. The ever popular Fashion Alley will increase in size for their spring event, having doubled its number of dealers over the past year. Stores like Lofty Vintage and Collections by Ann will have more booth space at the show to display their array of vintage clothing, jewelry, and handbags.
