GREENPOINT — Lovers of antique books, posters and jewelry will be able to shop more than 100 vendors at Brooklyn Expo's debut event.

The Brooklyn Antiques and Book Fair will run on Saturday, Sept. 13 and Sunday, Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 79 Franklin St.

The brand-new 40,000-square-foot expo center will be filled with East Coast vendors marketing their books, antiques, jewelry, art and photography for the fair. Tickets cost $12.

Highlights include photos of sisters Marjorie and Katherine Stinson, who were among the first women to fly a plane in the early 1900s, and photos by Philip Fagan, who documented New York women in the sex trade.

The event benefits the Brooklyn Public Library and Friends of Greenpoint. Brooklyn Brewery and The Milk Truck will be on site to sell food and drink.
