Show manager Marilyn C. Gould has cancelled the Wilton Outdoor Antiques Marketplace, scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, June 23 and 24, 2007, in the meadow north of the Wilton High School. The 130-dealer fair was a benefit for Wilton Kiwanis projects.
Several factors contributed to her decision, Gould said.
“The Wilton school system is becoming increasingly difficult to work with. We had to move the Wilton Historical Society Antiques Show from March to April 29. Putting on another show in Wilton eight weeks later was too soon for me and for exhibitors,” Gould said.
Since January, Gould, who is also director of the Wilton Historical Society and Heritage Museum, has been busy organizing “Made In Connecticut: Toys for American Kids, 1850′007,” which opened at the museum on May 1 and continues through July 15.
She still maintains an active show calendar. In addition to the Wilton Historical Society Antiques Show, she produces the Wilton Holiday Antiques Marketplace, scheduled for December 2; the Wilton Historical Society American Craftsmanship Show, November 10‱1; and the Strawbery Banke Museum Crafts Show. Gould also manages the Delaware Antiques Show in November.
Gould says she is working on a new show, called “Fine Design,” to take place Saturday and Sunday, September 15 and 16, in Wilton.
“While it will include antiques dealers and craftsmen, it will be a totally different kind of show, focusing on room and garden design. I’m hoping to attract a different clientele and introduce them to a variety of design ideas,” said Gould.
