A moment with the Greenwich Ephemera Festival"
"The Ephemera Society of America (ESA) held its forty-fourth annual fair at the Greenwich Hyatt from March 15 to March 17. The three-day event gathered collectors in the hotel’s ballroom to buy, sell, and trade ephemera, a broad class of items which can include antiques and collectibles, but largely consists of things that were not intended to last."

A Panorama of Design

"Love’s bonds can be delicate yet feel constraining and require hard work to maintain. How better to express all that than by slicing paper into handmade greeting cards, with whorls that can be pulled up to form gossamer cages for images of lovebirds, bouquets, engagement rings, or even rodents? The cards, known to fans as cobwebs or beehives, became popular in the 1800s. Some will be for sale March 16-17 at the Ephemera Society of America’s annual fair at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Old Greenwich."
