A Sneak Peek Inside The 20th Century Cincinnati Show at Sharonville Convention Center


This weekend, the Sharonville Convention Center is transforming into the swankiest pop-up thrift store in the Queen City.

20th Century Cincinnati is celebrating its 25th anniversary of showcasing the best of Vintage Modern design from Art Deco furniture and lighting to knick-knacks and works of art. A cornucopia of offerings for all budgets awaits with over 70 dealers spread out across 20,000 square feet.

This year’s special guest is 91-year-old Modernist glass designer Wayne Husted, who will be both exhibiting some choice vintage works and selling more contemporary designs.

For true collectors, Saturday’s Java Preview offers early-bird admission to snag advance shopping opportunities, with bonus coffee, tea and juice.

We put together a sneak preview of some of the things you can expect to see this weekend. Keep in mind these are in progress photos — vendors may still be working on their booths. 

11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 23) and Sunday (Feb. 24); 9-11 a.m. Java Preview Saturday. $8 is good for both days; $25 Java Preview. Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Sharonville, queencityshows.com.
