Own a Piece of History

Antiques aren’t just for your grandma anymore. With the proliferation of television shows like “American Pickers” and “Pawn Stars,” interest in any object with a hint of history behind it has hit a fever pitch. If you find your DVR full of episodes of “Antiques Road Show,” then the Ellis Boston Antiques, Art & Design Show is for you. From October 23–26 at the Boston Center for the Arts’ Cyclorama in the South End, visitors can browse and buy from 40 exhibitors who offer everything from furniture and ceramics to vintage jewelry and ancient artifacts. Don’t miss the Gala Preview on October 23 from 5:30–8:30 p.m., which features food, wine and live music and benefits Ellis Memorial, an organization dedicated to strengthening inner city working families. Rookie antique-lovers need not fear, as the weekend is highlighted by New Collectors Night on October 24 from 5–8 p.m., as well as panel discussions on historic home renovations and interior design.
