The 2014 Philadelphia Antiques Show took place this past week, kicking off Friday night with its annual preview party. Founded in 1962, The Philadelphia Antiques Show is one of the longest running antiques shows in the country. The preview party hosted about 1,000 who dined on delicious food, enjoyed an open bar, and mingled.

For years the show was held at the 23rd Street Armory until it outgrew the space. In its new home at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, it’s organized more like visiting a grand home with different rooms filled with the most exquisite items. One of the finest shows of Americana features more than 50 exhibitors offering a vast selection of furnishings and decorative arts for both the period and the modern American home.


The proceeds from the show benefit the Penn Medicine University of Pennsylvania Health System, and will support the Penn Center for Human Performance.
