and they were buying!!!




LoVely Displays in this booth...




1st Time Vendors 
~* LEONI VINTAGE *~ 
Went All-Out with their Over-The-Top Display!!!
And AwEsoMe Show Booth Neighbors as well!!!




Great Display!*!*!
LoVed the BedSprings with Old-Fashioned Lights!!!




Despite the Constant Buying Crowd ON SATURDAY, and myself  having a very decent show,  something was very *OFF* for Friday's Preview Night Festivities,
 besides the COLD TEMPERATURES...

ON FRIDAY NIGHT Customers were greeted Outside the Main Front Door Entrance by the Booth pictured above in the top photo...  REALLY!?!?
  I just couldn't hold my tongue on this one!!!  

   ~However, once you walked through the door, the HoLiDay B*L*I*N*G abounded, as seen in the bottom photo...  OUTSIDE, across the parking lot from the Main Indoor Building, a group of Local ViNtaGe Dealers "Tented-Up with Heaters Going"...   Their Little Camp-Like Area was Soooo inviting!!!

 Customer comments circulated~ Regarding not as many quality vintage dealers this year, Some of their favorite vendors not being set up this time, & the Expense of Early-Bird Buying, to be a disappointment...  

I'd LoVe to Hear Your Comments either
 on the Blog -or- via Email...
