Twenty five years ago “Gold in Your Attic,” the Historical Society’s own booth at their annual Chappaqua Antiques Show, began as only one table with several small objects for sale. It was located in the back hall of the school.

Antiques-available-at-the-New-Castle-Historical-Societys-Gold-in-Your-Attic-booth-at-the-45th-Chappaqua-Antiques-ShowThe booth has grown every year and is now featured in other area antiques shows. Both dealers and show attendees seek out the booth to see what the community has donated and/or consigned for sale. Both options benefit the Historical Society. Some of the more recent items include a rare Russian samovar, an opaline glass light fixture from Paris, vintage embroidered Japanese kimonos, and Tiffany candlesticks. Over the years we have seen rocking chairs, antique desks, mirrors and a variety of artwork.

If you would like to donate or consign items to the Gold in Your Attic booth, please call the Museum at (914) 238-4666 for more information.

One never knows what is going to appear – treasures that have been hidden away in someone’s attic.
