A yearly auction held by the Woman’s Club of Wilmette, in Illinois, will benefit the Wilmette Junior High PTO Science Fund – as $1 is donated for every ticket sold.
The fund is just one of the beneficiaries of the December event.
The Annual Premier North Shore Antiques Show and Sale is celebrating 72 years, and is the North Shore’s longest running show. Some of the best antiques dealers will be in attendance at the auction with a variety of fine pieces, which will be sold during the weekend of 7th and 8th. In addition, experts will be available to give advice on restoration and repair of porcelain, china, glass and silver. Furniture restoration advice and a demonstration will also be provided.
The mission of the Woman’s Club of Wilmette is to support domestic violence victims, youth and public service organisations. The donation from the antiques show will be used by Wilmette Junior High PTO Science Fund to pay for essential items for the students to test water quality and predict weather patterns in the US. Technology carts will also be acquired, so that students can learn how to follow the live collection of data.
Although the show will feature advice on how to restore items, extensive repairs to pieces of furniture like antique chests is better left to an expert in the field. Objects that have previously been restored by specialists to their original condition are available at antiques dealers in the Lancashie area of the UK.
