The grounds of the historic Mulford Farm on Main Street in East Hampton Village will be jammed with antiques and art from 50 dealers — and with shoppers hoping to find objects they just cannot do without — next weekend at the 11th annual East Hampton Antiques Show sponsored by the East Hampton Historical Society. 

Everything from Ikat textiles to vintage sunglasses will be available among the rattan, bamboo, Art Deco, Moderne, and country-decorated furniture, light fixtures, garden ornaments, wrought-iron accessories, paintings, vintage jewelry, weathervanes, and mirrors. 

A preview cocktail party takes place Friday, July 21, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets to the show, which opens at 10 a.m., are $10 on July 22 and July 23, with early birds admitted at 9 for $20. For those who really want a jump on things, preview party tickets start at $150 and include admission on the following days. Junior tickets for the party are available for those 40 and under at $100.

Tom Samet, an interior designer, is honorary chairman of this year’s event. “With a broad range of styles from classic to contemporary represented, there is truly something available for everyone,” he said.

 The show itself is organized and vendors selected by Brian Ferguson Antiques. The East Hampton restaurant Bostwick’s and Debbie Geppert Events Catering will provide an on-site cafe. 

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 631-324-6850, by e-mail at, online at, in person at the East Hampton Historical Society Osborn-Jackson House, 101 Main Street, or at the gate.
