Maybe you’re one of those people who, no matter where you find yourself, has to stop into any used bookstore you see. Or, maybe you can’t pass a shop with mid-century furniture or vintage jewelry. After all, what if there’s a first edition of Sister Carrie hiding in a stack, just waiting to be discovered? What if there’s an amazing lamp or rare Heywood Wakefield coffee table that will complete your living room?

If that sounds like you, you should know about the Brooklyn Antiques and Book Fair, coming to the brand-new, 40,000-square-foot Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, Sept. 13-14, 10am to 5pm. More than 100 antiques dealers and rare book sellers will be at the event, peddling their wares. (more…)

If your understanding of buying antiques at auction begins and ends with Christie’s, consider heading to the Manhattan Inn in Greenpoint this Sunday, Oct. 20, to bid at Brooklyn Auction Barn’s final antique auction of the year. For two hours, you can indulge in a type of weekend fun typically reserved for trust funders and pro estate salers, and hopefully take home a piece of vintage furniture, art, collectables, lamps, electronics, instruments or tchotchkes, which are all being priced to move with starting bids beginning somewhere between $1-$50. Cash and credit are both being accepted, and the bidding starts at 4pm, so plan to get there early before everything is going twice…sold!
