On Thursday, November 6, The Woman's Board of Winnetka Community House kicked off Antiques + Modernism Winnetka with a highly anticipated benefit Preview Party at Winnetka Community House. More than 350 collectors, treasure hunters, interior designers and community supporters gathered for a first glimpse of this highly anticipated style and design event. Chaired by Winnetka resident Amy Swartchild, the preview party helped raise more than $100,000 to support the programs and services of Winnetka Community House, a non-tax supported organization that is dependent on a broad base of community support for its existence.
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.
So, whether adding to a collection or curious about what some of the items handed down are worth, the place to go this weekend is the Antiquesand Modernism Winnetka Show.
