Go Vintage With a Summer of Love Event … and More Event Ideas for June

Fifty years may have passed since the Summer of Love, but the mythology still burns, which makes this cultural touchstone a great inspiration for a summer party. Maybe a trunk show with a vintage feel, a designer inspired by earth issues? Another option: A Lucy in the Sky of Diamonds Sale. June is also the 50th anniversary of the release of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” 

  • June 8 On the 105th anniversary of the first Ziegfield Follies, hold a fancy-dress party to mark one of Broadway’s high points. Pearls and art deco-inspired jewelry are de rigeur. 
  • June 17 Mark the 45th anniversary of Watergate by doing something conspiratorial-feeling but useful: Shred those old financial papers piled up in your study. (But check with your CPA first).
  • June 28 Chicago’s Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade, held today, is the biggest in the country. Get involved locally in activities planned to market LGBT Pride Month.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
