Margo has been retired for the past 10 years. She gets the most out of life and enjoys serving on the Board of Directors of Keeler Tavern Museum. This volunteer position includes managing the Gift Shop, Co-Chairman of the Antiques and Treasures Sale and is the manager of the Christmas Boutique.
Margo assisted with the Keeler Tavern Museum in Ridgefield, CT in planning their annual (18th) Antiques and Treasures Sale. It was held in early August at the Garden House, the barn and under tents on the Museum property at 132 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.
This event, a fundraiser for the Museum, will feature period furnishings and objects d’art from the 18th to 20th centuries. The furniture will be beautifully displayed with accessories for sale including lines, silver, porcelains, antique dolls, china, glass, art work, oriental carpets, mirrors, clocks, lamps, fireplace sets and other decorative items. Estate jewelry, Civil War artifacts, antique children’s books and much more will be featured and available to purchase.
After viewing the treasures indoors, visitors can stroll through the glorious flower filled garden designed by Cass Gilbert, architect of the Woolworth Bldg. and choose wrought iron furniture or other outdoor pieces for their own garden or terrace. Visitors may continue on to the large tent and barn to view furniture suitable for apartments or dorm rooms. A short walk to the front lawn is where small bargain treasures are for sale.
The monies raised from these sales help the Museum maintain the property and sponsor various programs. For additional information on the Museum please call 203/438-5485 or visit keelertavernmuseum.org.
