It’s love at first glance with one-of-a-kind finds at the Pre-Valentine’s Day Show at The Sunday Antique Market.
The Sunday Antique Market, which recently made its way from the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto to the Small Arms Inspection Building in Mississauga’s Lakeview neighbourhood, is hosting its love-inspired show on Feb. 5.
As for what to expect, organizers say shoppers can peruse everything from Venini glass and designer jewelry to decorative art and memorabilia.
In a news release, organizers said that each piece sold is not only ever-changing, but many are rare and sought-after vintage.
The pieces will be sold by vendors who scour the world for items such as sterling silver from England, folk art from Quebec, and antiquarian and old books from private collections and estate sales.
The Sunday Antique Market is a unique addition to the city. For 31 years, the weekly market took place in Old Toronto until moving west into the newly-rejuvenated Small Arms Inspection Building on November 2022.
The Small Arms Inspection Building is remarkable for many reasons. In 1940, the site was a large munitions plant which manufactured rifles and small arms for the Canadian army during the Second World War. At one point, the factory had more than 5,000 employees, and two-thirds were women.
The building is located at 1352 Lakeshore Rd E near Dixie Rd.
The Sunday Antique Market happens monthly, and parking and admission are complimentary.
Attendees who come to check out the romantic goods on display can also enjoy a coffee and indulge in some homemade pastries or soups at the Capitals B Cafe’s Bistro inside the market.
So far, the Sunday Antique Market has hosted several events since moving to Mississauga, including a Christmas Pre-show last year.
