• Service Club of Manatee County Antiques, Vintage & Collectibles Market

    Service Club of Manatee County will hold its 52nd Charity Antiques, Vintage & Collectibles Market on February 24, 25 and 26, 2017 at the Bradenton Area Convention Center. For over 90 years, Service Club’s mission has been to make a meaningful and sustaining difference in the quality of children’s lives in Manatee County. Last year Service Club raised and distributed $124,500 to 29 local nonprofit organizations providing underprivileged children with food, shelter, clothing, health and educational services. Our Market will feature over 50 vendors selling antiques, painted furniture, shabby chic, farmhouse, Americana, vintage decor, primitives, lace, silver, artwork, jewelry, vintage cameras and much more. The Market also features crystal repair, antique appraisals by Kennedy Brothers Auctions (Sat. only) and Annie Sloan® Chalk painting demonstrations (Sun. only). The Opening Night Soirée on Friday features cocktails & hors d’oeuvres, catered by Pier 22, live music, and an exciting silent auction. Hours are Friday from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Sunday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. All proceeds raised through this event benefit Manatee County nonprofit organizations who support the well-being of local disadvantaged children.
