If you love antiques, as I do, and live in the NYC metro/Westchester/Greenwich/Fairfield area – head over to the Greenwich Winter Antiques Show this Saturday and Sunday and celebrate the holidays in high style at the holiday house tour and boutique that follow soon after. All proceeds from the festivities go to support the Greenwich Historical Society.
This year’s Antiquarius kicked off in high style with a luncheon honoring Markham Roberts at the Belle Haven club on November 13th. This year’s event was co-chaired by Tiffany Burnette, Samantha Moro and Catherine Tompkins.
The Winter Antiques show is this Saturday and Sunday (12/6, 12/7). It is produced by Barn Star Productions/Frank Gaglio and will feature over 40 exhibitors including fine art, marine art, estate jewelry, American and continental furniture, luxury handbags and more one-of-a-kind items. The show will have a food cafe featuring light fare operated by Garelick and Herbs and admission is $15 at the door at the Eastern Civic Center in Old Greenwich. Here is a list of the exbitors. Kicking off the antiques show is the Preview Gala Friday night from 6:30 to 9pm. Tickets for the Preview Gala can be purchased here. There will also be featured designers on hand throughout the day on Saturday offering advise on design dilemmas. There is something for everyone!
I wanted a sneak peak at some of the items that will be at the show this weekend. Here are a few items that are on my “WANT” list!
Love this custom-made garden table. Fabricated from 18th century white marble balusters and silver travertine tile. See it at the auction – we would love it in our garden:

An assortment of jewelry from Jacqueline Smelkinson. These Sparkling Victorian cut steel earrings have two circles and five drops. They are fun to wear day or night. The earrings measure 2″ long and 5/8″ at their widest. Cut steel jewelry is said to have originated in Woodstock, England where it evolved from the manufacture of steel toys. It became popular as an alternative to diamond jewelry. Surely in evening social occasions, by candlelight, it looked like rose diamonds.England, circa 1860
