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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
