Christie Antique Show

Every spring and fall, vendors set up shop at Christie Conservation Area for the annual one dayt antique sale. And every spring and fall, thousands descend on the park looking for a rare treasure. There is, simply, everything here – furniture and glassware and signs and, well, you name it. Here’s a look at some photos from today. – Barry Gray
