Pittsburgh to cherish the past through collectables

January 6, 2013 by  

Browsing, buying, and selling antiques is a popular interest and one show which will appeal to those who enjoy sort of dealings with antiquated items is the Pittsburgh Antiques Show and Sale which takes place every February.

Organizers are no doubt working closely with local printing companies to prepare for the event. One example of this is that flyers can help advertise the show to the community and make sure everyone knows when it is taking place, while banners can help draw attention to various areas of the event.

The show and sale, which is presented by the Historical Glass Club of Pittsburgh, is open to both the public and collectors, and early buyers can get an extra hour to peruse what is available before it is open to the general public. Items which will be sold at the show are likely to include jewelry, pottery, china, furniture, toys, silverware, and decorative accessories. In addition, there will be demonstrations and educational exhibits from local museums.
The theme of this year’s special exhibit is ‘glass study’. The exhibit ‘The Victorian glass menagerie, 1850-1910’ will display animals recreated in glass. This should be a good show for those who are keenly interested in antiques or those who just want to learn about antiques.

The 38th Pittsburgh Antiques Show and Sale will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel from February 16 – 17. Admission is $5 or $10 for early buyers, while children under 12 are admitted free. Proceeds from the show will benefit local animal rescue organizations. For more information, please contact Zita Reis at 412-734-5279.
