The proliferation of antiques shows is a direct response to the pleas of road-tripping families playing the alphabet game who are perpetually terrorized by the letter Q. Find your sought-after item with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one ticket (a $16 value) to the "Antique City" Fun Fair at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks on Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This Groupon allows for admittance one hour early on Saturday (9 a.m.), and admission for children 12 and younger is free.
The "Antique City" Fun Fair is a classic-goods emporium that treats timeless-treasure enthusiasts to myriad antique accouterments and collectors' items at more than 500 vendors. Waltz down aisles packed with history-tinged gear, perusing spaces laden with toy trains, preserved comic strips, jewelry, fine art, and more while conversing with storied vendors and their clairvoyant 1930s-era teddy bears. The two-day extravaganza bedazzles ocular sockets with a dizzying array of goodies, entertaining memorabilia fans for hours before angling them toward a well-deserved nap inside an 1867 rolltop desk. The show poses as an ideal opportunity to snag inimitable pieces of nostalgia, such as clocks and jukeboxes churning out old-timey ditties, for sprucing up living rooms or hovercraft garages.
