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!
