One of the most highly anticipated antique shows in the Northeast, the Chappaqua Antiques Show will be held on November 6th and 7th at the Westorchard School. Now in its 43rd year, it will feature over 50 top dealers from the region and beyond. In addition, interior designers and interior space planners and raffle prizes and a mouthwatering homemade dessert table will make this annual event a hit with guests of all ages and interests.
Sponsored by the New Castle Historical Society, the show raises important funds to support the Horace Greeley House Museum and its rich calendar of educational activities for school groups and community members. Event co-chairs Betsy Guardenier, Lois Dannecker, Susan Blumenfeld and Tess Cerra, with the help of honorary chair, star chef Sandra Lee, and a dedicated team of 150 volunteers will hold the Society’s most important event of the year. “More than ever, our homes are havens for relaxation and a more home-centered lifestyle,” says Guardenier. “Our honorary chair Sandra Lee, pictured here, brings this idea to life in her TV programs and books. The Chappaqua Antiques Show is one place to find the best for ourselves and our homes. With its varied assortment of antiques—everything from jewelry, rugs, prints, kitchenware and furniture—our show has truly something for everyone, at every price point. And now, with our emphasis on home design, shoppers will find unique treasures and inspired ideas on how to make them work in their homes.”The popular “Gold in Your Attic” booth features treasures donated and consigned by New Castle residents to benefit the Historical Society.
This annual event is a favorite in the region and in previous years has welcomed as honorary chairs former President Bill Clinton, actress Vanessa Williams, and singer-songwriter Dar Williams.
