Now in its sixth year, the East Hampton Historical Society's annual East Hampton Antiques Show will take place on the historic grounds of Mulford Farm the weekend of July 21-22, kicking off with a Preview Cocktail Party July 20. Designer and author Charlotte Moss is the Honorary Chairperson of the preview party, which offers patrons an early buying opportunity of the extraordinary array of antiques and collectibles.
Twenty-five A-list interior designers who work in the Hamptons are also supporting this year’s show on the Designers Committee including Tom Scheerer, Marshall Watson, Tom Samet and Sharon Simonaire to name just a few.
“There is nothing more important than preserving our architectural heritage so those in the future can experience it, learn from it, be aware of history. We all do what we can. The East Hampton Historical Society is crucial to the preservation of our community's integrity. Everyone can participate is this mission and they can begin by coming to the Antiques Show and shopping!” said Ms. Moss.
