Five hundred exhibitors and with any luck thousands of antique-lovers will converge on Pier 94 in New York this weekend for Stella’s 2009 Pier Antiques Show. Merchandise will be found grouped by type, classic and formal; Americana, decorative arts and collectibles; 20th century Modern and Fashion Alley. There are shuttle buses from the Port Authority, Grand Central and 55th and Madison. The hours are 10-6 both Saturday and Sunday (back in the day shows were open until 11!).
Also this weekend (and after), David Sokosh, whose podcast about clocks can be heard by clicking on the right menu bar, has an exhibit of Victorian era-looking tintypes of mens fashion taken on Governor’s Island. Several are featured in a New York Times slide show. Selections from the shoot will be on display and available for purchase at MDH Fine Arts at 233 West 19th Street in Manhattan.
