If in the Northeast this week-end, looking for getaway adventure, hop on the ferry for a visit to Nantucket. The 33rd annual Nantucket Antiques Show opens today and runs through Monday. The NY Times Travel section includes all the info - places to stay, where to eat, what to see - in their article 36 Hours in Nantucket. Attached below is more on this week-end's Antiques Show from The NY Times Home section.
"The 33rd annual Nantucket Antiques Show, Friday to Monday, is scheduled to have 22 dealers from the United States and Europe, including William Nickerson Antiques, which will show 18th- and 19th-century furniture and Shaia Oriental rugs, and the Silver Fund, a London firm specializing in Georg Jensen silver. Phoebe Booth Antiques, a Manhattan firm that sells English furniture and decorative items, will show a number of pieces, including an Arts and Crafts ebonized fireside chair, circa 1890, at left, that has its “original woven rush seat,” Ms. Booth said (it is listed at $2,850)."
"Proceeds from the show, to be held at Nantucket High School, will go to the Nantucket Firemen’s Association. Tickets for the preview party on Thursday are $50; admission to the show is $10. For information or to reserve party tickets: (757) 220-0400."
