RHINEBECK, N.Y. – Frank Gaglio of Barn Star Productions has announced the creation of a new fall event, the Autumn Hartford Antiques Show. The new event will be held Sept. 19-20, 2009, at the Connecticut Expo Center in Hartford.

With the recent cancellation of the Fall Hartford Antiques Show, Barn Star can fill the gap left in dealers’ fall schedules and endeavor to restore the excitement and fine quality antiques show Hartford had become known for.

“I have been looking for an opportunity to bring New England another Barn Star event, and when the Expo Center presented availability, Hartford became that event. We are thrilled at the number of longtime and high-end Hartford dealers that have already heard about this new show and have requested a contract,” said Gaglio.

The Autumn Hartford Antiques Show will present prominent New England dealers specializing in traditional Americana, plus selected dealers in other categories including art, jewelry, garden, pottery, textiles, maps and prints, folk art and Oriental carpets. Dealers will present their antiques in room-style settings.

Gaglio said that he will also introduce a taste of Mid-century modern and English antiques, with the hope of creating a show everyone will shop and enjoy.

The Connecticut Expo Center has become a popular location among showgoers and dealers for its ample free parking, easy loading and access from major highways.

With a year to build the show, Gaglio said he is planning an extensive marketing ad campaign.
