The Cooperstown Antique Show is here!

Whew! What a busy couple of weeks!
The Round Lake show was last week, and it was fun and successful for us. We had a wonderful time visiting with our friends, not to mention selling lots of great merchandise both days of the show!
So we came home Sunday night, recovered on Monday (lots of fun + lots of work = tired) and moved on to the next big thing.
And that thing is the 48th Annual Cooperstown Antique Show on Sunday, July 4. As I have said, this our first time managing a show, and at this point we are feeling the nerves. I was interviewed on three local radio stations yesterday morning – that was something new! There is definitely some last-minute scrambling happening (rental tables? you mean no one ordered the rental tables??) And there are decisions to be made – how many donuts do we need for the dealers during set-up? You don’t want too many, and you definitely don’t want too few. Ahh…the minutiae.
On the stress-relief side of things, the weather forecast looks fabulous. I am feeling totally blessed by this incredible weather! And we are equally blessed by the response we have had from our dealer friends to our involvement in the show. They are showing their support by coming to set up, some for the first time in years and some for the first time ever. Its truly heartwarming.
I am certainly hoping for tons of shoppers, and tons of sales for everyone. But with the bunch that is coming I am certain that we will have fun, no matter what else!
Please visit the website for the Cooperstown Antique Show for details and directions, and come on down on Sunday. It’s going to be a terrific day!
