The East Hampton Historical Society
will present the return of the highly anticipated East Hampton Antiques Show
on Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 23, with a Preview Cocktail Party on Friday, July 21.
"From the first time I visited East Hampton as a teenager, I knew that this was a special place. The charm of the village and surrounding area is the same today as it was then thanks to the continuing work of our local organizations and societies," said Tom Samet, interior designer and the Honorary Chairperson of the Cocktail Party. "I still get the chills every time I turn from Woods Lane to Main Street and see the sun reflect off the town pond with the famous swans swimming and the history of the area in view in the background."
The East Hampton Antiques Show is now in its eleventh year and is widely considered the premier antiques event on eastern Long Island.

The Preview Cocktail Party will offer patrons first access to the extraordinary selection of antiques, art, jewelry, and collectibles. The 2017 Antiques Show will include an assembly of over 50 antiques and art dealers, and the focus of this year's show is vintage decorative items for the home and garden. Classic rattan and bamboo furniture, lighting, textiles, architectural elements, American and European country decorated furniture, Art Deco and Moderne, garden ornaments, wrought-iron accessories, industrial items, paintings, trade signs, period jewelry, weathervanes and mirrors will all be available for purchase at the show.
The show will also offer an on-site café by Bostwick's & Debbie Geppert Events
Catering Co. Both the Cocktail Party and the Antiques Show will be held at Mulford Farm
in East Hampton, which features a restored 17th century farmhouse in addition to several barns and outbuildings among the oldest on Long Island.
"With a broad range of styles from classic to contemporary represented, there is truly something available for everyone to buy," said Samet.
Tickets to the Friday night Cocktail Party start at $150 per person and include return visits on the weekend. Junior tickets (ages 40 and under) are priced at $100. Ticket proceeds benefit the East Hampton Historical Society.
