The West Village annual fair season kicks off with the Greenwich Village Antiquarian Book Fair this weekend. Featuring over 50 antique booksellers who will wow you with everything from first edition Americana to medieval manuscript pages, it's hard not to while away a couple hours in search of something special. After all, first editions do qualify as a great gift for that someone who has everything... Entry fees ranging from $5-$12 (depending on the day) benefit arts programs at nearby PS 3. FB is very impressed with the creativity that local schools in the area have displayed. Tribeca local schools have a Taste of Tribeca, for instance. Book lovers will enjoy perusing books they may have only heard of.
