(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) It's a long-standing tradition that continues at the Civic Center, the annual antique show brings out furnishings and knick-knacks of old, as well as folks just looking to explore.

"For me and for others in this business its all about the hunt," Angie Hummer, show promoter said.  

Organizers behind the show said about 60 vendors from near and as far away as Michigan came to St. Joseph to take part in the show.

The vendors taking part brought their own mix of eclectic taste to the show.

RT Rustics specializes in repurposing old furniture. 

"We’re former co-workers and started just kind of doing this for fun." Rosemary Salerno, RT Rustics said.

They said there’s a market for upcycled furniture.

For most visitors though, it’s was all about finding that diamond in the rough, that special item that can’t be found in a store or on Amazon.com, items that tell a story of a time gone by.

"You come with an expectation of just finding a treasure." Eric Martin, a visitor said.

it’s that feeling visitors said that keeps visitors coming back

"Because it’s fun," Martin said.

The St. Joseph Antique Show and Vintage Market will open again on Sunday, Feb 17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $6 and kids 16 and under are free.

A warm and windy Thursday across the area as temperatures reached into the low to mid 70s. A much cooler day on Friday across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas and the winds again start to pick up out of the north which will cool our temperatures down to the 40's for highs.
