RHINEBECK, N.Y. — Antiques at Rhinebeck kicks off this weekend, May 28-29, offering an across-the-board selection of quality antiques spanning continents, centuries and styles. The extensive exhibitor list features over 135 dealers with an expansive variety of antiques, vintage, furniture, décor, jewelry and collectibles.
Frank Gaglio of Barn Star Productions only recently took over management of the show, this being his second year running it. With boundless enthusiasm, Gaglio is proud to bring Antiques at Rhinebeck into its 40th anniversary this year.
Gaglio says, “This year’s show will introduce new categories of objects to the floor, keeping Rhinebeck fresh and interesting for the Twenty-First Century collectors and decorators, as well as our incredible Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century dealers whose material eclipses time.”
If a show’s success is reliant upon the quality of exhibitors, Rhinebeck will prosper. The show’s renewed energy has prompted Gaglio to add a fourth building to the grounds, housing new dealers with inventories that elevate and expand past years offerings.
The show takes place at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds at 6550 Spring Brook Ave, Rhinebeck, N.Y. 12572. For more information, www.barnstar.com or 845-876-0616.
