The fifth annual Greenwich Winter Antique show is now on at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center through Sunday, December 4.
This year there are 40 nationally recognized exhibitors who have brought their finest offerings for you to delight in, enhance your collections, and shop for your holiday gifts.
This is a real handsome show, featuring top-flight dealers with interesting and wonderful inventories. The dealers offer thousands of good reasons to attend this refined exhibition.
Savvy collectors know this is a great place to buy antiques!
Featured every style: fine art, marine art, estate jewelry, American and continental furniture, prints, fine porcelain, folk art, luxury handbags and much more from the 18th century to the hot collectibles of the 20th century – just about every kind of antique you could ever want to see or own.
Decorator and author Alessandra Branca (Honorary Design Chair) has created a winter atmosphere with a Black Forest theme, benefiting the Greenwich Historical Society and their capital projects campaign. The space is artfully adorned with festive, ornamented holiday trees and whimsical touches.
The opening night preview party drew an abundant crowd who enjoyed the festivities in high-style, breezing through the aisles of the finest antiques and collectibles in elegantly decorated room settings, chatting with the dealers, and purchasing timeless treasures.
Promoter, Frank Giglio who enjoys working with exceptional antique professionals said, “They are truly the stars of the weekend.”
He added, “having produced the Greenwich Winter Antique show for the last five years, I must compliment the show committee and The Greenwich Historical Society for putting this event on the map as one of the elegant shows of the year. A personal thank you to all our exhibitors who make this event a reality.”
