Aerin Lauder — designer, tastemaker, and modern-day style icon — is the Honorary Chairperson of the Preview Cocktail Party on Friday, July 22, which offers patrons an early buying opportunity from the impressive array of antiques, art, jewelry, and collectibles. Ticket proceeds from the Preview Cocktail Party benefit the East Hampton Historical Society.

“East Hampton is such an important part of my childhood and there is nothing more important than to preserve history around you. The East Hampton Historical Society does a beautiful job in maintaining some of the most iconic properties in America and I am honored to be co-chairing this year’s Antique Show, showcasing some of the most incredible art, jewelry and collectibles,” Lauder said.

The site of the show, Mulford Farm, is located on James Lane in the heart of East Hampton Village. The 3.5-acre property features a restored 17th-century farmhouse as well as several barns and outbuildings that are among the oldest on Long Island. The selection of wares and art to be offered during the show come from a diverse assembly of more than 50 antiques and art dealers, housed in white tents across the farmstead.

The focus of the show is vintage decorative items for the home and garden. Classic rattan and bamboo furniture, lighting, textiles, architectural elements, American and European country decorated furniture, Art Deco and Modern, garden ornaments, wrought-iron accessories, industrial items, paintings, trade signs, period jewelry, weathervanes, and mirrors will be for sale.

Admission to the Antiques Show costs $10, with early buying at $20. Show hours are Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., with an early buying hour at 9 a.m. On Sunday the show is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Admission to the Friday night opening night preview party is $150 per person and includes return visits on the weekend. Junior tickets (ages 40 and under) are priced at $100.
