Kimberton Sunday report

Sunday is always a question.  We only had one sale, but overall it was a really good show.  So no more shows this year.  But next year we might add a few more.

Kimberton Antique Show

We made it, and it did turn into a long day.  There was 6" of snow here so we could not use the side door of the building to unload.  Had to use the front which is a longer walk.  But it's done and we're ready.

More snow

I can't believe it's still snowing.  It's going to be a long day, not sure when we are leaving.  Waiting for the roads to clear.

Thursday, November 15, 2018


Got to be ready for any kind of weather.  Most of the packing is done, just a little more for tomorrow.  Setup is between 8 and 4.

2018 Lititz Antique Show Friday report

For our first show at this venue. it turned out well.  Had sales all day long and felt if we had more merchandise that might of sold to.  The promoters of the show are great and really did a wonderful job of advertising it.
So today it's open from 9-2.  Talking to other dealers that have done the show for many years said, we may get sales or not.  Anyway looks like a hot day, good we have air condition.

Renningers 2018 Show cards

This years show card has a photo of our booth.

Moving out of Slatington next week.

The time is closing down fast on our move.  It's kinda bad timing, the trailer is loaded from our last show.  We're using the same setup for Kutztown, so I could just leave all the merchandise in the trailer.  But with the Slatington move, I have to empty the trailer, then load it at Slatington, unload it at home and reloaded for Kutztown.  Still hoping for that one day when we can go to a show without all this trailer loading and unloading.

Kimberton Sunday show report

Sunday turned into a good day for sales.  That put us ahead of last year.  That is good news, specially when most dealers agree that the fall show has stronger sales.  So, onto Kutztown.

Saturday was a good day.  Sales where strong and hoping to match last year sales. 
This was the original center piece for our booth.  It was sold Friday as we started our setup.
