You did your spring cleaning and now, you deserve some new things! Perhaps you should make your way to Ardmore Antique and Vintage Market on Sunday, April 29 — a collaboration between Phila. FleaMarkets and Ardmore Initiative.
From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., go hunting for antiques, estate jewelry, glassware, pottery, home furnishings and more at Rittenhouse Place at Lancaster Avenue.
“We are thrilled that Phila. Flea is back for another year,” says Marie Suvansin, executive director of the Ardmore Initiative. “The market is a great opportunity to welcome new visitors to Ardmore and introduce them to our wonderful small businesses and many great restaurants. We are especially excited that many of our downtown businesses are bringing family-friendly activities [including a scavenger hunt], to Rittenhouse Place to get the whole family involved.”
