My favorite Antique Fair -SALON DE LA BROCANTE et DE L'ANTIQUITE' - February 23rd -February 26th in Carouge

copyright howtogeneva.com  - Painting by Leonce "La Revue du Nuveau Monde"
This is my favorite  antique fair, it's small, nice and full of interesting objects most of them at decently reasonable prices , it can be a a true treasure hunt experience if you are lucky and if you avoid peak hours. The Salon de La Brocante et de l'Antiquite' takes place every year in the Salle Des Fetes de Carourge , tram stop "Ancienne" and it lasts 4 days , this year it starts on Feb 23rd and it ends on February 26th .  This is not the place to buy high end antique furniture, however you can find a large variety of things such as paintings,jewels , small pieces furniture, and much more , mainly from the beginning of last century and also from 1950's 1970's
Opening hours are very convenient : on Thursday from 2 p.m. till 10 p.m.; on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. till 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. till 7p.m. FREE ENTRY

I love this little fair, held always by the same small group of antique shops owners, some years ago I bought there my loved large  painting "La Revue du Nouveau Monde" by Leonce
