On 6 October 2016, a long red carpet will be rolled down the Rue Auguste Comte in Vieux Lyon. This kicks off the annual antiques festival that Lyon hosts every year. Featured are everything from furniture to vases to jewelry and more! If you are interested in collecting antiques, this is the place to be. It’s also a great source if you are remodeling your home or if you have just moved. Of course if you are in the market for making some extra cash from antiques, you should stop on by. The Red Carpet event also has live music with lots to eat and drink. It is pretty much a big fun party with a lot of great antiques to look at. Even if antiques are not your thing, it is impressive to see some of the stuff that are put out for sale or display. Think about how old Lyon is and then you will realize the amount of centuries that can be easily covered in an antique sale there.
