GREENWICH, Conn. -- Whether you're a lover of fine antiques, eager to catch a glimpse of Greenwich's most spectacular homes or just ready to start celebrating, Antiquarius, the Greenwich Historical Society's annual series of high-style holiday events, is just the ticket.
The festivities begin with the Greenwich Winter Antiques Show from Dec. 4-6, featuring more than 40 vendors displaying 18th- to mid-20th-century art, decorative objects, estate jewelry, furniture, prints and vintage accessories. New this year, representatives from New York auction house Doyle will be available by appointment Friday, Dec. 4 to help determine just how much your family heirlooms are worth.
Interested in shopping the antiques show before it opens to the public? Attend the "Back to the Future"-themed preview party Thursday.
The holiday boutique at Christ Church will take place Tuesday, Dec. 8 and Wednesday, Dec. 9, with festive holiday shopping and unique gift and holiday items for everyone on your list. Passed hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served from 6-8:30 p.m. on Dec. 8 and the boutique will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Dec. 9.
The holiday house tour will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 9 and spotlight five properties.
The money raised at these events support special exhibitions, preservation initiatives, education programs for all ages, a library and archives focused on all things Greenwich, as well as the Bush-Holley Historic Site.
