Los Angeles Antiques Show Runs This Weekend
Los Angeles is a city that has a strange relationship with the past. It's accused of being a city with no history and yet it is a city that adores and reveres old things, as long as it can remake and reinvent them. For collectors and designers alike, the playground is open this weekend. It may not be one of the most famous antique shows but the Los Angeles Antiques Show, which runs through Sunday, is a great showcase of dealers from Southern California and around the world. The show features jewelry, fine art, collectibles of all sorts, fine silver, rugs and furniture from a wide variety of eras. The show is at the Barker Hanger at the Santa Monica Airport and runs through Sunday and costs $20. Why should you go? Let the pictures tell the story, a few selected images are after the jump, more in the gallery below.
