The 9th annual East Hampton Antique Show will debut during a preview cocktail party on Friday, July 17th from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Interior designer David Netto will serve as honorary chairperson of the kickoff soiree.
"Growing up in East Hampton gave me such a love of American architecture — the older and humbler the better, though in East Hampton we do have all kinds," shared Netto.
The preview cocktail party offers guests early buying opportunities of the antiques, art, jewelry, and collectibles. The evening will also include live music from Jane Hastay
and Peter Martin Weiss and catering by Brent Newsom. Both the party and the Antique Show will be held on the grounds of the Mulford Farm.
The focus of this year's show is vintage decorative items for homes and gardens, such as rattan and bamboo furniture, garden ornaments, industrial items, period jewelry and more. The event, which is managed by Ferguson & D'Arruda of New England, is well received by collectors and dealers, and features items from over 50 antique and art dealers.

"Come and shop, come see your friends, come meet some designer you've always wanted to meet," Netto said. "It's your history and mine, and we need to thank the East Hampton Historical Society for all they do."
The East Hampton Antique Show will be held on Saturday, July 18th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, July 19th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 or $20 for an early buying opportunity.
