WILTON, Conn. — The Wilton Spring Antiques Show will open its doors on Saturday, April 16, and Sunday, April 17, for a weekend of treasure hunting, discovery and fun.
The event is hosted by the Wilton Historical Society and Barn Star Productions and held at the Wilton High School Field House.
Benefiting the Wilton Historical Society the show will include over 30 diverse exhibitors in gallery displays showing a wide variety of antiques, fine art and garden furnishings just in time for spring decorating. The show also raises funds to allow the society to continue its mission of educational programs, groundbreaking exhibits and historical restoration of several properties.
“Wilton rivals or exceeds many other regional shows with dealers from six states and Canada," says Frank Gaglio, show manager. "Our new boutique floor plan makes it easier to enjoy the show without being rushed or cramped as you visit with familiar dealers and new ones as well.
"Wilton is one-stop shopping for beginning to advanced collectors so gather up some friends for a delightful New England weekend and make Wilton your show of choice welcoming spring!”
Some of the new dealers in the show are Richard Axtell from Deposit, N.Y.; Rue du Tresor from New York City; Edwin C. Ahlberg Antiques from Guilford; and American Room Antiques from Chambersburg, Pa.
Show amenities include free parking, mobility challenged access, café, free glossy magazines, antiques newspapers and courtesy table filled with upcoming event announcements.
