NEW YORK – Recognized as one of New York City’s largest and most comprehensive antique events, the Pier Antique Show returns to Pier 94 the weekend of Nov. 23-24, 2013. U.S. Antique Shows, who acquired the show this past May from Stella Show Management, will mark its inaugural year hosting this event.
“Our U.S. Antique Shows team is really excited to be producing this popular New York event,” said Dan Darby, GLM vice president and group show director. “Exhibitors and attendees will see some notable improvements at this year’s show, including the option to purchase tickets online, a new show directory and an increased marketing and social media presence.”
Just in time for the holiday season, visitors can purchase unique and one-of-a-kind gifts for family and friends. The Pier Antique Show features nearly 500 exhibitors of quality antique furniture, decorative and fine arts. This includes items from the 1920s through 1980s, such as manual typewriters, kitchen and home décor, steampunk designs and more. The very popular fashion and book alleys will also reoccur at the show this year.
“The Pier Antique Show is one of the best attended shows my husband and I have seen in our business, and we enjoy participating in it each year. We currently live in Florida, but have many customers in New York and we’re able to sell a lot of our merchandise at this show,” says exhibitor Adele Grodsky of Adele & Alan Grodsky.
U.S. Antique Shows Fair Development Director Andrea Canady also shares her excitement for the upcoming show, “I have attended the Pier Antique Show for the past 15 years and always enjoyed the vast variety of merchandise. I’m thrilled to be working with all the dealers at this year’s show. Their passion for what they sell is truly infectious, and it has been a joy getting to know each of them over the past few months.”
