For the 6th year in a row, over 80 antique and vintage dealers, repair services, buyers and appraisers will gather at the Suburban Collection Showplace on May 11th and 12th to buy and sell furniture, jewelry, clothing, housewares and more at the Novi Antiques Market show.
"This year we have expanded the show to include the Miss Novi Pinup Girl contest. Contestants will show off their 40s and 50s vintage style on Saturday, May 12th," said event coordinator, Cecily Near of Grand Events LLC. "Contestants will be judged on their ability to embody the glamour and class of such iconic figures as, Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable."
The antique market will take place Friday at the Suburban Collection Showplace from 10:00 a.m. -- 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with the Miss Novi Pinup Girl Contest at 1:00 p.m. The market will showcase the latest home and fashion trends in vintage, antique, and eclectic goods.
"Lots of people wonder how much some of the antiques are worth that they have sitting around the house. Now is the perfect time to bring them in and have them appraised. Because of their uniqueness many people opt to incorporate vintage antiques into their living spaces. Whether it is something handed down through generations or found at an antique show many homeowners make "antiquing" a hobby in order to add personal flair to their homes," said Near.
