After a cold wet winter, antiques are breaking out all over the place. Sales and happenings all through the month of May. But you don't have to worry about missing your favorite event, because you can depend on the New Century Collector to keep you posted on what's going on out there. So gas up the car and hit the road.
HERE'S YOUR MAP TO ANTIQUING NIRVANA
ABOUT TIME ANTIQUES BIRTHDAY
What could be better than cake and an antiques sale. Be sure to stop by and wish a happy 1st birthday to owner Connie Tibbits at About Time Antiques Mall. Cake and antiques! Mmmmm on both counts.
FLEA O LOGY, EVERYONE'S FAVORITE FLEA MARKET
This is not a day for antiquing lightweights. Two must attend events, the spring Flea o logy sale and the Sandy Historic Museum collectibles sale & appraisal event will separate hardcore antiquers from the wannabe's.
As luck would have it, the girls at Flea o logy are out to get the worm. So, you can participate in the art of discovering second hand treasures at 8:00 am Saturday morning, and still make the scene at the Sandy Museum by its 10:00 am kickoff.
Find out what your old stuff is worth. The Utah Antiques Dealers will be sponsoring an appraisal event at the Sandy Museum, where for a paltry $3.00 each, you can have your antiques and old books evaluated by three of Utah's best appraisers, Gary Thompson (Gary Thompson Antiques), Nate Bischoff (Bearcat Antiques & Appraisals) & Ken Sanders ( Ken Sanders Rare Books). All proceeds will go to the museum.
CAPITAL CITY ANTIQUES MALL, SUNDAY MARKET
Capital City kicks off the third season of its popular Sunday Markets on the second Sunday in May. Owner Monica Zoltanski promises to soothe our souls with a few of our favorite things; antiques, food & music. What better way to spend a sunny Sunday morning.
EXPRESSIVE BUNGALOW ANNIVERSARY
THE ESTATE SALE MALL, PARKING LOT SALE
Expressive Bungalow, one of Salt Lakes classiest resale shops, celebrates it's first anniversary in May. Stop by on the 12th, and congratulate owner Nancy Blaney, enjoy some refreshments, and shop at 25% off your total purchase.
If outside sales are you thing, you'll want to be in Ogden for what promises to be a great antiques & collectibles sale in the parking lot at The Estate Sale Antiques Mall. Owner Lance Lewis always has plenty interesting things at good prices.

SPRING CITY HERITAGE DAY
Last but not least, is one of my favorite annual events. Spring City Heritage Day. Catch an early breakfast, bid on art by the foot, attend an antiques show in the Old School, and take the most fascinating historical home tour you've ever been on. It's an easy drive from anywhere in Utah to Spring City. If you've never been before, this will become one of you favorites too.
I'LL SEE YOU OUT THERE. I'M GOING TO TRY TO MAKE THEM ALL!
