The East Hampton Antiques & Design Show returns to Mulford Farm on James Lane this weekend, beginning tomorrow, July 15, at 10 a.m.. Now in its 17th year, the show serves as one of the biggest benefactors for the East Hampton Historical Society, while simultaneously celebrating the East End’s art and social scene.
“It’s a great evening because old and new East Hampton are all together, thinking about how lucky we are to be here… and the shopping is fun!,” says Liz Lange, honorary chairperson of the event in a statement released by the EHHS.
Lange, a fashion entrepreneur, author and podcast host, will be on hand for tonight’s preview cocktail party, where patrons will get first dibs on the array of antiques and cool collectibles available at the sale.
As the current owner of the iconic Grey Gardens in the Georgica Pond neighborhood of the hamlet, Lange is no stranger to the historical value of the area, having been coming to East Hampton since childhood, according to a press release.
“The buildings that the East Hampton Historical Society maintains are vital and make up the composition of one of the loveliest and best-planned villages in America,” she says.
Tickets to tonight’s cocktail party are $250 and are available here, and benefit the EHHS.
The antiques and design show will run tomorrow, July 15, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the 3.5-acre property, which boasts a restored 17th-century farmhouse along with some of Long Island’s oldest barns and outbuildings. Items include paintings, vintage decorations and wares for both home and garden, textiles, furniture, and jewelry ranging from classic to contemporary styles. There’ll be an onsite café and advance tickets are $15.
“I have found some of my favorite possessions there,” says Lange. “It’s a highlight of a summer and an event I never miss.”
