March 1: Decorating with Antiques with Larraine Meyer

"Decorating with Antiques"
Friday, March 1
7:00 pm
Goodwin Library
Historical Society Museum
presented by 
Larraine Meyer
Antiques Dealer

Perhaps, the story of how Lorraine became an antiques dealer is the most interesting part of this most interesting woman’s life. She attributes it all to being raised in a convent. She says convent school children were allowed very few personal items. Indeed, she explains with a laugh that this is why she loves being surrounded by “clutter”. In essence, attempting to make up for what she feels she missed as a child. At the age of nine, her parents divorced. Her father, as she explained “got” her and promptly placed Lorraine in a convent with nuns, who all became her “mothers”. Lorraine says her entire worldly possessions were contained in one tiny black suitcase. It is her belief that she reacted to deprivation by later accumulating anything that caught her eye.

A Meeting of the Historical Society Membership will follow the presentation.
Light refreshments will be served.
