Weekend shopping
I bet you woke up this morning and thought, "Gee, I'd really like to buy some new upholstered furniture this weekend." If so, you're in luck, because The Conran Shop's upholstery sale starts tomorrow, with savings of 20% on its most popular sofas and armchairs. Yay! 9/18-10/3; 11-8, 10-7 Sat., noon-6 Sun.; 407 E. 59th St. (at 1st Ave.).

If you feel like getting out of the city this weekend, head up to White Plains for the Vintage Clothing, Estate Jewelry, and Textile Show, featuring more than 100 exhibitors, plus a cash prize on Sunday for the person wearing "the most vintage attire" (hey, it's $250 for first place, $100 for second, and $50 for third). Admission is $8. If you take the Metro North to White Plains, it's a six-minute walk. 9/18-9/19; 10-5 Sat., 10-4 Sun.; Westchester County Center, Rte 100 Tarrytown Road, White Plains, NY.

If you'd rather stay in the city, head to the Metropolitan Pavilion for their Fall Antiques & Decorative Arts Show, which features jewelry, art, objets d'art, and knickknacky stuff. Admission is $10. 9/18-9/19; 11-6; Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St. (6th & 7th Aves.).
