Just after imagining that Chinese mirror over the credenza, we realized that said credenza’s never been the same since the boyfriend neglected to put a coaster under his scotch. Time to replace it with something with an comparable patina—the Pier Antiques Show begins today. This year’s show features “Book Alley,” where you might be able to find that first-edition of Great Expectations (though your own great expectations may end up dashed). Pick up a lamp and claim you just received it as an inheritance from your Philadelphia ancestors.
Pier 94, 12th Avenue at 55th Street, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visit http://www.stellashows.com/ for more information.
