Setting up at the Kansas City Antiques Expo, July, 2014

Monday’s post will be up by noon.

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.

Setup for the Kansas City Antiques Expo began yesterday at noon and will continue until 5 PM today. This is my first time at the new exhibition facility at the Holiday Inn KCI, near the airport. It’s a modern exhibition hall that nicely accommodates all the dealers. It’s an interesting mix, with several dealers from last week’s Denver Antiques Show, together with many new Midwest dealers and even lamp and glass dealers from Florida, Alan & Adele Grodsky.

I’ve got a gigantic booth, 40′ long. It’s very nice to work and display in a large booth. We’re not stepping all over each other during the setup and the final display won’t look crowded. I’m very pleased the way the booth is setting up.

It’s surely worth a trip to the show from anywhere in the greater Kansas City area. Many of the dealers are strong with high-quality displays. Remember, it’s only a 2-day show that starts tomorrow, Friday, at 10 AM and ends at 6 PM on Saturday. Don’t come on Sunday, as the show will already be closed and we’ll be on our way back home. I’ll post the results on Monday.

baltimore-8-2014We’re off for a couple of weeks and then on to the big, important Baltimore Summer Antiques Show. It’s the biggest and best show of the summer, and one of the best of the year. Consider it to be the summer version of the Original Miami Beach Antiques Show in February. Buyers fly in from all over the world, including as far away as Japan. No matter where you live, you should come. It’s that great and important. You’ll love the show and you’ll love Baltimore.
