Where did the time go? Hard to believe, but a year has passed since the 36th Annual Pineapple Antiques Show & Sale… But happily, here we are at the 37th!!!

Now held in the brighter, airier venue of the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium, tickets to the event benefit the First United Methodist Church, Sarasota, and the Rotary Club of Sarasota Sunrise. Forty dealers from all over Florida and some snowbird vendors from the north have filled the space with silver, porcelains, paintings, primitives, jewelry, linens, vintage fashion accessories, toys, and memorabilia. In short, the show offers a wide range of antiques and collectibles from the 18th through the 20th centuries.
