Antiques in the Hamptons this weekend? Stop into the East Hampton's Mulford Farm show...

What's happening around East Hampton this weekend? 
I will be on the hunt for antiques at Mulford Farm in East Hampton...

This weekend there are lots of parties, events, fundraisers and family get-togethers but on the top of my list is the East Hampton Mulford Farm Antique Show.  Tomorrow night's (Friday) gala on the historic, bucolic property kicks off the festivities with lots of sneak peeks and early buying. 
The East Hampton Historical Society 
brings this annual show to the historic grounds of Mulford Farm from Saturday July 19 to Sunday, July 20.  For eight years now the antique show is one of my favorites in the area.  Interior Designer Celerie Kemble is the Honorary Chairwoman of tomorrow's Preview Cocktail Party which is set on the Mulford Farm, located on James Lane in the heart of the village of East Hampton on 3.5-acres of historic land, complete with a restored 17th century farm house and several barns and outbuildings, some of the oldest on eastern Long Island.   With more than 55 antique dealers in the meandering property throughout set in white tents spread across the  the farm, it is truly one of the prettiest places to shop for antiques. 
check out these photographs I've taken of a sampling of items I've spotted, 
and some I've picked up for myself or for my clients over the years when shopping 
at the Mulford Farm show! 

 there are a cornucopia of botanical and antique prints
I loved checking out this lovely majolica
 some of my favorite pieces are the fabulous outdoor garden furniture 
offered at the show each year.
the lighting and antique textiles are some of my favorites as well.
