The past routinely comes alive at the Sen. John Heinz History Center in the Strip District, but it will do so in a whole new, style-centric way on Saturday.

In partnership with The Neighborhood Flea, the history center is hosting the fifth annual Vintage Pittsburgh Vendor Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event features more than 40 local vendors selling vintage fashion, accessories, housewares, vinyl, home décor, artwork, books, toys, small furniture and other collectibles.

In addition to shopping, there will be a number of other activities, including a roundup of local food trucks (among them Meat Here!), a pop-up coffee shop from Zeke’s Coffee, retro board games, a photo booth in a vintage camper, the Storyburgh story time for kids and a selfie scavenger hunt throughout the museum.

The history center also will offer a special Vintage Pittsburgh discounted admission rate to all museum visitors throughout the day. Tickets will be $10 for general admission (the regular admission price is $16) and $6.50 for students and children age 6 to 17. Admission is free for children age 5 and younger as well as for history center members.
