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.
After a very difficult week that started with truck trouble, we will exhibit at the Charleston Antique Show this coming weekend. We had to leave most of our supplies in the truck, and two-thirds of our merchandise in New York, so our exhibition will be improvised. We had to buy all the basic supplies we always carry, like light bulbs, electric wires and fabric. We were able to rent a single showcase from a local dealer. But now it’s all new, so after exhibiting at hundreds and hundreds of shows, it’s like starting all over again. I’m not a fan. The show opens with a preview party on Thursday night. I can’t tell you how thrilling that is. NOT! Then the show opens to the public on Friday at 10 AM and closes on Sunday at 5 PM. Charleston is a very nice city and I expect the public to be very friendly and courteous. What I don’t expect are sales. Exhibiting in Charleston was a shot in the dark, but not having our usual display makes me truly apprehensive about the results. I hope I’m wrong, but I think this show will not end well. Tune in on Monday for the results.
