This prematurely-warm March weather may have you taking a closer look at your winter-crippled garden earlier than normal this year. So the timing couldn’t be more perfect for the Ice House Mall’s third annual Antique and Garden show sale which starts today in Barrington.
You’ll find plenty of ideas, inspirations and items to help you revive your indoor and outdoor décor at this year’s show. Presented by Barrington antique dealer and merchant, Tivoli Garden Antiques, the FREE event runs through this Saturday, March 17th, and features a variety of vintage home and garden furniture, jewelry, clothing and accessories for sale. Ice House Mall Marketing Director, Maria Straussner says, “It’s a nice event for the community to come do something different…
It affords them with something new to look at, because we don’t normally carry antiques or furniture.” Local and regional vendors will be selling their vintage items until 7 p.m. tonight. The doors will be open again from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday, March 16th and 17th. After you shop, there’s another great event at the Ice House on Friday at 7 p.m. The Barrington Cultural Art Center will host a show in tribute to historical women. Tickets for the show, called “Women Who Inspire,” can be purchased on-site and will cost $5.00 per person. Barrington’s historical Ice House Mall & Village Shops will not fail to fulfill your vintage decoration needs this spring, so be sure to make a stop at 200 Applebee Street this weekend to see what’s new at the Antique and Garden Show.
