Maybe you’re one of those people who, no matter where you find yourself, has to stop into any used bookstore you see. Or, maybe you can’t pass a shop with mid-century furniture or vintage jewelry. After all, what if there’s a first edition of Sister Carrie hiding in a stack, just waiting to be discovered? What if there’s an amazing lamp or rare Heywood Wakefield coffee table that will complete your living room?

If that sounds like you, you should know about the Brooklyn Antiques and Book Fair, coming to the brand-new, 40,000-square-foot Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, Sept. 13-14, 10am to 5pm. More than 100 antiques dealers and rare book sellers will be at the event, peddling their wares.

Exhibitors from all over the county will be displaying furniture, jewelry, paintings, pottery, prints, vintage and antiquarian books on every subject, prints, manuscripts and more. If you want to be among the first to get a peek at what’s for sale, come to the opening night preview on Friday, Sept. 12, 7:30-9:30pm. The event is a benefit for the Greenpoint branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, and refreshments will be provided by Brooklyn Brewery and Milk Truck. (Mmm… grilled cheese and beer.) Tickets for this event cost $25.

Weekend passes for the Brooklyn Antiques and Book Fair are $12 for adults, though you can get a $6 discount by bringing a new children’s book to donate to the Brooke Jackman Foundation or a $5 discount by signing up for Brooklyn Antiques and Book Fair updates. Children get in for free.
