Antiques return to field house
The Wilton Historical Society and Barn Star Productions will present an antiques show revival with the return of the Wilton Antiques Market, Sunday, Oct. 27.
The event, which has enjoyed collector and dealer loyalty for decades, will be revived under the directorship of Frank Gaglio and Lynn Webb at the Wilton High School Field House on Danbury Road, where it originated.
“We are ecstatic to see such enthusiastic support from the antiques dealer community for this exciting fund-raising event,” said Leslie Nolan, director of the historical society. “Frank and Lynn, who have successfully managed our Fine American Craftsman Show for the past five years, sought permission from our Board of Directors to bring back the antiques show and have received unanimous support for this project. We look forward to the show as an annual event and collector support for the exhibitors.”
More than 105 exhibitors from 13 states will fill the hall with period Americana, English and French furnishings, fine and folk ceramics, textiles and needlework samplers, mid-century decorations, estate and costume jewelry, trade signs, stoneware, early iron and brass, poster art, Black Forest carvings, decoys, game boards, Oriental carpets, carnival games, lighting, mirrors, clocks, nautical work, fine art, prints and maps plus several other categories not offered before at the Wilton show.
The exhibitor roster will read as a “who’s who” of active, talented and familiar former Wilton exhibitors as well as several newcomers happy to join the show, a press release said.
Show hours are 9 to 5. Admission is $10. Information: barnstar.com or call 845-876-0616.
