The semi-annual Antique & Collectible Show returns to the Washington State Fair Events Center (in Puyallup) on Nov. 7 & 8. 300 exhibitors filling 400 booths will offer items ranging from salt & pepper shakers to jukeboxes all from the 1880s to the 1970s. Collecting, decorating and wearing vintage has never been more popular, particularly with the emphasis on recycling and repurposing. All it takes is your imagination; the ingredients are at the show for making your personal design statement or the chance to surround yourself with things that you grew up with (or that your mother threw away). Examples include Pez dispensers, turn of the century estate jewelry, furniture, vintage watches, Parrish prints, pharmacy items, pottery, kitchenware, vintage clothing, circus posters, postcards, old cookbooks, vintage military items, toys from the 1880s to the 1960s and 70s, vintage lighting, lamps, old tools, advertising, glass, silver, china, vintage clothing, firearms, dolls and pretty much anything that is no longer produced.
