The Greenwich Historical Society is pleased to announce plans that this
year’s roster of holiday events includes the Greenwich Winter Antiques Show,
managed by Frank Gaglio, Inc. on December 7 and 8, at the Eastern Greenwich
Civic Center, Old Greenwich, Connecticut. The Greenwich Winter Antiques Show
will be a premiere feature of the Historical Society’s annual Antiquarius
fundraiser, which will also include a Holiday House Tour and Holiday Gift
Boutique. The Holiday House Tour, chaired by designer Sandra Morgan is themed
“the Holidays in High Style” and will take place on Wednesday, December 11. The
Holiday Boutique, chaired by Ashley Allan and Holly Cassin, will be held at
Christ Church parish hall (a new venue for the boutique) on December 10 and
Antiquarius fundraising events also include a patron party on November 15
and a spectacular themed opening night preview party on December 6 that
includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, designer tours of the booths, door
prizes, private early shopping and consultation with exhibitors. The Greenwich
Winter Antiques Show will feature period to mid-century antiques, fine art and
exceptional jewelry. In addition to collections from top exhibitors, a series
of special programs are being planned, including a designer event and celebrity
guest speakers (both sold-out programs in 2012.)
Antiquarius chairs include Tiffany Burnett and Don Casturo, Killeen and
Joseph Faughnan, Mimi and John Henry Moulton, Anne and Chuck Niemeth, Deborah
and Chuck Royce, Leigh Ann and Robert Ryan, Catherine and David Tompkins, and
Roxanne and Hugh Vanderbilt. Antiquarius is a major source of funding for the
Greenwich Historical Society, providing crucial financial support for the only
organization in town dedicated solely to the preservation of Greenwich history.
Proceeds help sustain the Historical Society’s library and archives, lectures,
exhibitions, award-winning educational programs that serve more than 7,000
students and its beloved Bush-Holley House and Historic Site. More details
