Antiquefest at Long Branch Park in Liverpool Starts Friday
The Great American Antique fest will be happening in Long Branch Park in Liverpool this Friday through Sunday before.
Why go to an antique fest? Isn’t it just a bunch of people with old useless things?
No! Sure, certain things are useless to certain people but there is such a wide variety of things, I would be amazed if anyone did not find one thing they liked.
About six years ago, I had my boyfriend at the time come with me and my mom to antique fest. Just to put things into perspective, he was never a huger shopper, was pretty punk rock but obviously very open and easy going. He ended up finding a 40 year old bottle of whiskey that a man sold to us for $20!
For the ladies, of course there are all kinds of goodies from jewelry, home decor items to furniture itself.
I personally am a sucker for jewelry there as well as old photographs and memorabilia of Marilyn Monroe.
This year, I’m hoping to find something unique for my apartment as I try not to buy any more Marilyn items seeing as I have way too much and attempt to stay away from the jewelry but hey, a girl has her weaknesses. I’ll let you know what I find next week!
