Shoppers pouring through the gates during Early Buyers Friday at the 2009 Vero Beach Antiques Extravaganza.

VERO BEACH, Fla. – More than 400 dealers from all over the United States and Canada will gather here on Jan. 28-30 to display a wide variety of antiques and collectibles from all over the world in the 15th annual Vero Beach Antiques Extravaganza.

Only antiques and old collectibles are allowed, meaning you won’t have to pick through the more modern clutter to get to the good stuff: estate jewelry, silver, china, glass, pottery, art, all types of furniture (including formal, country, European, and Chinese), postcards, military, linens, quilts, primitives, and much more will be offered for sale. Specialty items include Highwayman paintings, golf collectibles, decorative accessories, and nautical items.

The huge show starts off on Friday, Jan. 28, and serious shoppers will be in line to get in on the Early Buying entrance, starting at 1 p.m. Early buyers’ admission is $10 each for those wanting first chance at the merchandise. The show continues Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. General admission for each weekend day is $6 and parking is free.

The show will be held at the new Indian River County Fairgrounds on the north side of Vero Beach. The show is very easy to walk and is wheel chair friendly. One half of the show is held inside the air conditioned Expo Center, while most of the remaining vendors are located in huge, covered pavilions protected from the weather. Some of the area’s finest concessions will be available on the fairgrounds for the weekend.
