Torrance provides a hot spot for antiques

June 22, 2012 by  

In today’s fast-paced society, things often appear to moving at a pace that is only constant in its increasing rapidity. Due to this phenomenon, it can seem that fashions and fads change very quickly and whatever was en vogue yesterday is only borderline passé today.

Comfortingly for those worrying of time passing too quickly, however, many things that may seem to have gone out of style for a moment have actually made a comeback and are in high demand, because they are trend-proof. As a matter of fact, many experts believe there has been a resurgence in the popularity of antiques and vintage items.

As society’s interest in vintage items continues to increase, vendors in the South Bay area who have a lot of collectibles and antique items will opt to take their merchandise to the streets of Downtown Torrance. This Sunday, June 24, 2012, the Torrance Antique Street Faire will once again take place, rain or shine, from 8:00am till 3:00pm. It will be a great way to spend a portion of the first weekend of the summer. Vendors seeking to add visual appeal to their areas may invest in banner printing, which would also add definition to their spaces.

It is not only this week, but every fourth Sunday of every month since 1988 that people have been going to Downtown Torrance in search of items that are usually very difficult to locate. They have not been disappointed in their quest, as the number of vendors has increased from 25 to over 180 during this time.

The public is invited to come early, as the first shoppers have the first selection of items.
