The Greenwich Historical Society is pleased to announce that this year's roster of holiday events includes the Greenwich Winter Antiques Show, managed by Frank Gaglio, Inc., on December 7 and 8, 2013, at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center, Old Greenwich, Connecticut.

The Holiday House Tour, chaired by mother/daughter designer team Sandra Morgan and Laird Morgan Tolan, will showcase five spectacularly decorated Greenwich homes and will take place on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. The Holiday Boutique, chaired by Ashley Allan and Holly Cassin, will be held at Christ Church Parish Hall (a new venue for the boutique) on December 10 and 11, 2013. Talented leadership for Antiquarius is in abundance once again with a steering committee that includes Tiffany Burnette, Fraser Bennett Beede, Killeen Faughnan, Sabrina Forsythe, Suzanne Frank, Rachel Kelley, M. E. Kjaernested, Mimi Moulton, Anne Niemeth, Anne Ogilvy, Deborah Royce, Leigh Ann Ryan, Catherine Tompkins, Roxanne Vanderbilt and Davidde Strackbein, Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

On December 6, 2013, Antiquarius will kick off with a party and preview of the Winter Antiques Show with a mid-century modern theme "Meet Me at the Beverly Hills Hotel." Not to be missed, the celebration will include signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, designer tours of the booths, door prizes, private early shopping and consultation with exhibitors. The Greenwich Winter Antiques Show will feature period to mid-century antiques, fine art and exceptional jewelry. In addition to collections from top exhibitors, a series of special programs are being planned, including designer and celebrity guest speakers (both sold-out programs in 2012). A November 15, 2013, private patron event for Antiquarius angels, patrons and benefactors is also on the calendar.
Antiquarius chairs include Tiffany Burnette and Don Casturo, Killeen and Joseph Faughnan, Mimi and John Henry Moulton, Anne and Chuck Niemeth, Deborah and Chuck Royce, Leigh Ann and Robert Ryan, Catherine and David Tompkins, and Roxanne and Hugh Vanderbilt.
Antiquarius is a major source of funding for the Greenwich Historical Society, providing crucial financial support for the only organization in town dedicated solely to the preservation of Greenwich history. Proceeds help sustain the Historical Society's beloved Bush-Holley House and Historic Site, the William B.
