Since 1988, the Christie Antique and Vintage Fair has been attracting specialist antique dealers to showcase their wares at this twice yearly celebratory market. Thousands of serious buyers, casual collectors and market lovers from across Canada and the United States attend this event. Having completed its 30th year of business, this show has grown so much over time that it is now considered Canada’s largest, and most favorite, antique and vintage market.
The Hamilton Conservation Authority now organizes the Christie Antique and Vintage Fair. Since 2010, this market has been hosting two events every year – one in spring and one in fall – each gathering over 250 antique professionals. The Christie Antique & Vintage Show attracts more than 10,000 shoppers and continues to gain popularity. The site is expansive, with plenty of room for the hundreds of vendors that attend. It is easy to access for shoppers too, with more than enough free parking and public transport routes almost to the doors. There is an entrance fee, which can be paid on arrival or booked in advance online. It is more than worth it to be part of this incredible display of historical items and exceptional vintage wares.
