One of the highlights of the fall social season is Antiques & Modernism, a weekend-long event that took place this year on November 7-9. Hosted by the Woman’s Board of the Winnetka Community House, the event combines the former Winnetka Antiques Show and the Modernism Show, nationally recognized as two of the Midwest’s most well-respected events.
Call it retro but your parents’ and grandparents’ mid 20th furniture and jewelry are “in.” Also in style are pottery, porcelain, pictures and pearls that date back a couple of centuries.
