Setting up at the Winnetka Antiques + Modernism Show, October 17, 2012

Our booth is a mess, but it will look great by the time the show opens to the public

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.

Finnegan Gallery has a beautiful display

Setup didn’t start too well at the Winnetka Antiques + Modernism Show today, October 17, 2012. When we arrived, our booth was supposed to be 20′ long, but turned out to be 17′. So after jumping through some hoops, we were able to get our booth increased to 19′. Not too bad, but it took half a day, so we lost a lot of time. We’ll still get it done on time for the preview party tomorrow night, but it would have been less stressful if things had gone as planned.

Jayne Thompson Antiques is almost finished setting up

The entire Winnetka Community Center is filled with top-notch dealers. There’s no one selling junk. That’s a problem at shows as some promoters are forced to fill their shows with less than the best dealers. We’re the only dealer at this show with glass and lamps for sale, but you may have a hard time finding us. We’re located in the gymnasium. It’s a complicated building, so you have to look around to make sure you didn’t miss anyone on two floors.There are lots of good dealers with paintings, furniture, silver and more.

Sandy from Deluxe has her usual fine display

The show starts to the public this Friday, October 19th at 11 AM, and ends on Sunday, October 21st, at 5 PM. There’s plenty of time to visit, see some gorgeous items for sale and consider making a purchase. There are no dealers from the Arlington Park Racetrack Show from last week, so if you visited that one, you’ll see a whole new selection.

This is the last time we’ll be exhibiting in the greater Chicago area in 2012. We’ll be back for the spring edition of the Arlington Park Racetrack Antiques Show. Hope you can visit us in Winnetka this weekend. If you’re from the greater New York area, please come to see us next weekend at the Morristown Armory.
