Prallsville Mills Antique Show 2019 Sunday report

Did have one more sale on Sunday.  Overall, are sales weren't as bad as I had expected.  Sunday did bring just a little smaller crowd.  Talking to other dealers, some did said they would give it another try next year.  We're not going to make any decisions right now to if we go back.  The promoter does need to have more dealers next year.  A few customer had mention they expected more dealers.

In just 3 weeks it's off to Kutztown.

Prallsville Mills Antique Show 2019 Saturday report

It was a marginal day.  We did have about 5 sales, but need more today.  I'm still on the fence about the date of this show.  The mill is used for weddings and other events, so getting a latter date is difficult. Years back this show was twice a year, June and October.  See what happens today.

2019 Prallsville Mills pre-show photos

Small butter prints.

Last of the pre-show photos.  Tomorrow is setup and the show is Saturday &  Sunday.  Have my fingers crossed.  This show was cancelled almost 10 years ago.  Having it again on Labor Day weekend is iffy.  But we'll give it a try.  The mill is a wonderful location right on the Delaware river.

2019 Lititz Antique Show Saturday report

Did have more sales on Saturday.  But still not as good as last year.  Talked to a few other dealers and their sales were off from last year.  It's a great show with many quality dealers.  I still think the sunny weather was a factor.
A little time off then Prallsville in the beginning of September.

2019 Lititz Antique Show Friday report

Unfortunately I don't think this will be a repeat of last years show.  Sales definitely down from last year.  I think the weather has been so bad for such a long time, come along a nice day and everybody's outside.
Fingers crossed for Saturday.
