Back in the day, Route 7 was a weekend destination for antiques shoppers of all stripes. The Wilton Historical Society hopes to revive some of that with a new annual event \u2014 Objects of Desire: Style for the Garden and Home \u2014 that opens with a preview party on Friday, June 1, and continues Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3, from 10 to 5, at the museum complex at 224 Danbury Road. Admission on Saturday and Sunday is $10. \u201cWe\u2019re hoping it will be an ongoing destination,\u201d Allison Sanders, co-director of the historical society, told The Bulletin. Twenty-six vendors have signed up to offer their wares, and New York interior designer Phillip Thomas of Phillip Thomas Inc., who is the show\u2019s design chair, will set up a vignette of items from dealers in the large hearth of the Betts House as inspiration on how they can be used together. The historical society has teamed up with Karen DiSaia, who is acting as show manager. She also manages the New York Botanical Garden\u2019s Antique Furniture Fair and the Washington Winter Show, among others. \u201cWord among the dealers has been spreading,\u201d Sanders said. \u201cBy the end of the Botanical Garden\u2019s show we had four more vendors. Now we have a waiting list.\u201d The edited, eclectic mix of pieces for the garden and home will range from antique to mid-century to contemporary one-of-a-kind garden accents, fine furniture, accessories, found objects, and art. There will be armillaries to urns, sconces to sculpture, and a host of items in between at a variety of price points. \u201cWhen something has been around for 50 or 70 or 100 years or more, it has a different energy about it,\u201d DiSaia said in a press release. \u201cIt\u2019s a much more interesting approach to design.\u201d Dealers include A Bird in Hand, Jeffrey Henkel, Leatherwood Antiques, Newsom and Berdan, Sandy Jacobs, Village Braider, and Warren Antiques. In addition, there will be food trucks on site, including Bubble and Brew, which operates out of an antique fire truck. There will be wine and charcuterie on Saturday from 3 to 5, and the Wilton Garden Club will offer a container planting demonstration on Sunday afternoon from 2 to 3. Committee members are Wilton interior designers Angela Lowy\/Grace Homestyle Design, Jane Schapiro\/Jane Schapiro Interiors and Barbara Schmidt\/Tile and Texture, plus landscape designer Susan DiLoreto\/SMSD Landscape Design. The Festive Preview Party with early buying is Friday, June 1, from 6 to 8. Admission is $125, with proceeds benefiting the historical society. Information: wiltonhistorical.org.
