If you’re a fan of hard-to-find relics, dust off your directions to the Lujan Center at Expo New Mexico on Friday, Aug. 7, for The Great Southwestern Antique Show Sneak Preview (gswev­ents.com).

Attendees can also view a special exhibition called “The Navajo Man,” a display of intriguing Navaho menswear from the Michael Haskell collection dating 1860-1910.

All of the proceeds from the preview night admission fees go to funding the KNME PBS Endowment, which pro­vides funding for educational and artis­tic television programming per its pro­genitor, Cowboys & Indians Antiques owner Terry Schurmeier.

$12: cost of a daily genernal ad­mission ticket
