The semi-annual Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer will move to Nova Place in Pittsburgh’s North Side for its next event on Nov. 9. Organizers say the larger venue at the former Allegheny Center will allow for double the usual number of vendors of vintage goods, along with more parking.

To accommodate more vendors and more shoppers, the Pittsburgh Vintage Mixer is moving to a larger venue for its next event.

Dubbed by organizers as the “biggest vintage fair yet,” the Mixer is scheduled for 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Nov. 9 at Nova Place, the former Allegheny Center in Pittsburgh’s North Side.

“We are excited to expand our event in this huge, brand new Innovation Space on Pittsburgh’s historic North Side — bringing you even more shopping, more (indoor!) parking, more vintage fashion, more lamps and more vinyl,” organizers say. “With room for double the vintage vendors and 3,000 covered parking spaces, this vintage fair at Nova Place will truly be PGH Vintage Mixer’s version of Mall Madness.”

Since 2012, the semiannual event brings together local collectors and small businesses offering vintage fashion, vinyl, comics, toys, furniture, textiles, ceramics and pottery, mid-century modern wares, lighting, barware, artwork, collectibles and more under the theme “Kitsch! Conversation! Collectibles!”

The hipster flea market was the subject of a 2018 installment of WQED documentarian Rick Sebak’s “Nebby” series exploring various aspects of local history and culture.

More details and a list of vendors will be announced soon, organizers say. Information on becoming a vendor is available on the website.

Admission to the Nov. 9 Mixer will be $5, or free to children under 12.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
