Starting on Friday, January 20th, the Park Avenue Armory will host the 58th Annual Winter Antiques Show. For anyone who's really into vintage, the Antiques show is any easy way to pick up something that's completely legit. As for those of us who haven't quite ventured past the Beacon's Closet level of collecting, it's still a fun afternoon browse. The 73 exhibitors will show off everything from 17th century American furniture to 20th century vintage jewelry. And it's all for a good cause: Net proceeds from the event go toward the East Side House Settlement, a South Bronx non-profit that provides social services to community residents.
For a sneak peek of what will be on display, take a look through our gallery above for six standout pieces, from a 1970s Bulgari diamond necklace to a ring worn during the Renaissance. The show runs through January 29th, admission is $20, and you can purchase tickets here.
