    Hi Karen and Addvintage,

    I was wondering if either of you made it to the show. Anything great to report?

    It was a very smoothly run show for their 1st.
    The venue, The Cobblestone Events Center, is right smack dab in their antiques district which has 12 shops, 3 of which are considered antique malls. It is the oldest and largest antique complex in Michigan taking up a whole city block.
    The center has been newly renovated and is just perfect for a show of this size with bathroom facilites, fitting rooms set up and a lunch counter.
    I did not have time to go check out the shops. Will go back and stay with my DD soon to do that:)

    I did not see Addvintage. She must not have been able to make it.

    Great variety among the approx. 20-24 dealers set up from Victorian to 70's. Clothing, jewelry and textiles but no too heavy in any one category.

    I was busy as was another dealer with the same genre of stock. I'm sure she easily outsold me. Most of our items were 50's-70's wearable as opposed to collectible. She also had men's fashions as mine were all geared toward women. I tried to keep my price points between 15-35 and that seemed to work at this show. There was one dealer near me who had glorious displays of late 1800's-1920's merchandise but more lookers than buyers. Hopefully the next show will bring more buyers her way. I think the show has a lot of potential.

    They are doing another show in Oct.16th so I will be doing that one as well.
