NEW YORK – To celebrate Antiques Week in New York City, U.S. Antique Shows, a leading producer of indoor antique shows, marks its first year hosting The Armory Antique Show, Jan. 24-26 at the 69th Regiment Armory.
This past May, U.S. Antique Shows acquired the show from Stella Show Management and plans to highlight compelling and affordable collections from nearly 100 well established antique dealers at this year’s show.
“Our team is truly excited to return to New York City after a successful show at the city’s Pier 94,” says Fair Development Director Andrea Canady. “We’re thrilled to be working with a whole new group of dealers showcasing a wide range of merchandise that will add uniqueness to U.S. Antique Shows winter lineup.”
The Armory Antique Show features a breadth of merchandise that evolves from year to year, including antique furniture, Americana, folk art, mid-century design, garden, lighting, textiles, ceramics and more.
Recognized as one of the best shows in New York City for Americana pieces, the event will host the greatest number of Americana dealers during Antiques Week.
Americana dealer Michael Ogle of American Garage says, “The Armory Antique Show is the best show to attend during New York’s Antiques Week. The show hosts both an eclectic mix of antique merchandise, everything from designer and decorator pieces to Americana and folk art items, as well as nationally recognized dealers with 20-plus years’ experience dealing in the antiques industry.”
“As the first show of the New Year, The Armory Antique Show is an exciting way to celebrate the winter season,” says Bill Drucker of Drucker Antiques, a Georg Jensen silver expert.

I think fluidity of the show allows it to consistently evolve and stay current to antique trends, attracting new visitors each year.”
