Setup at the Chicago Merchandise Mart Show

The Merchandise Mart Show started setting up yesterday and will open with a preview party tomorrow night. The show will open to the general public on Friday at 11 AM and finish at 3 PM on Monday.

The Fall show sets up on the 12th floor of the Mart, not like Spring show, which sets up on the 8th floor. The feel of the show is quite different, with each exhibitor getting a huge booth. My booth is over twice as large as the Spring show, which gives me an opportunity to properly display my items.

The show has top quality exhibitors who exhibit only at the best shows, so you can expect a very diverse showing of the finest items. I’ve walked the entire show and I can testify that the dealers have set up some incredible booths with paintings, furniture, rugs, porcelain and of course me, with great glass, lamps and Icart etchings and paintings. This show is worth a trip, so try to make it your business.

Please send me your suggestions or questions about art glass, lamps, Louis Icart, shows, auctions, etc. If it’s interesting, I’ll answer your question in a future blog entry.
