Oldwick Show Report

Sunday we had a number of sales including a Shaker Basket.  So it turned out to be a good day.  Total sales for us topped last year, that's good.   Our next show will be in Long Valley February 2015.

Saturday show update

As always with this show comes a massive crowd of people at the opening.  The show starts at 10am and the line starts forming at 9.  It rained the whole day, not sure if it affected the afternoon shoppers which we're a bit down in count from last year.
   Sold a bunch of smalls plus a table, chairs and a sled.  Today we hope for a few more sales.

Day 3(Saturday) report from Kutztown Antique Show 2014

Lots of sun, lots of people and just a few sales.  The dealers I talked to had about the same results.  You just never know.
Next show for us is the Christmas Show in Oldwick.

The parking lot was full.

Day 2(Friday) report from Kutztown Antique Show 2014

What a difference a day makes.  Warm, sunny and lots of customers.  Friday had the sales we general get on Thursday.  Haven't added them up yet, but maybe better than last year's fall show. Hoping for a few more sales today.

Day 1(Thursday) report from Kutztown Antique Show 2014

Mostly it was a day of rain.  The antique dealers that setup in the field stayed away for the most part.  That cuts the show in about half.  Which really reduces the customer count.  We had a number of sales, but not the normal sales expected on Thursday.
Today the weather is going to be nice.  Friday is not general not good for us, we'll find out.

Show Time!

                        Rainy and a chill in the air.

Had our large red hanging cupboard on this wall for about 5 minutes, then it was sold.

Kutztown Spring 2014 Show Report

Now that the dust has settled, and I do mean settled. Thursday and Friday it was very windy.  Everything we have is covered in dust. Friday night it rain, so the dust turned in mud for Saturday.  But despite those few short comings the show for us was a success.  A few sales for Saturday helped, but I do think the crowd was down from last year for a Saturday.
This year most all our sales came from antiques.  In the past it's been a mix of folkart and antiques.  Our folkart buyers(dealers) didn't come this year.  Don't know why?  But that's OK, we still did very well.

Friday Kutztown Spring 2014 show report

Yesterday wasn't bad for us.  Nice weather again and a good crowd of people.  Had a number of sales and I'm pretty sure this is our best spring show yet.  Now if we can get a few more sales today, that will be the icing on the cake.

Thursday Kutztown Spring 2014 show report

Yesterday was a great start to the antique show.  The morning always starts a little slow, but by lunch things really pickup. The weather was sunny and a bit breezy and the parking lot was overflowing.  We had lots of sales and ran out of shopping bags.  Friday is usual slow for us.  We'll see.

Kutztown Extravaganza April 2014

Victorian era Dentist chair early 1900's.  There is a head rest that has a crank to adjust it, the chair seat can be adjusted for height by spinning, the arms can swing out and are adjustable, and the back can recline by using foot pedals at the base of the chair.  Great steampunk piece.

Long Valley show report

Most dealers we talked to reported sales down this year, compared to last year.  We fared no different. The weather has taken it's toll on antique shows this year.  I think we had a very nice setup.  So I put the blame on the weather and start thinking about our next show in Kutztown.

One day to go

Started to pack the truck yesterday and will finish that job today.  Having all the snow and  ice on the ground did slow the progress but at least it's not snowing.
We have about 2 hours tonight to move in and start the setup.  The rest will be finished tomorrow morning for the 9:30 opening.   See you tomorrow at the Long Valley Antique Show.
