This past weekend I was fortunate to get into the very popular Acorn Antique
Show here in Ogden, Utah. The lady who puts this great show on had a few
dealers cancel on her and I was able to secure a spot at the last minute! I
was very happy about this as it is next to impossible to get into this show as
she has all of her regular dealers there from one show to the next. Yeah me!
I have been selling online for 10 years this June and I've never been in a show
before. How crazy is that! Here is a side shot of my booth. I wanted to have
a spacious area for people to walk around in so I decided to have a u-shaped
booth. There is nothing more annoying at an antique show than walking into
a booth and being afraid that you are going to knock things over! I hate that!
Even as it was, I had people jockeying for room in here if you can believe it!
My front display got quite abit of attention from my antique glass claw foot
table to my cute mannequin. Everyone wanted to buy the skirt (it's my own
personal one from Victorian Trading Company) so I decided to put a price on
it...that pretty much sealed the deal as it was quite an expensive skirt and
people probably thought I was nuts! The lamp shade on her head was my
hubby's idea and it sold right away! Darn, he's good! (*_*) The rose
adorned lamp also got a LOT of attention, but no one purchased it. Maybe
they thought that it was just a little too over the top for them!
Lots of sweet things for sale here from bisque lamps to tole sconces to
tole trays, antique telephones, hobnail glass, antique chintz and more!
More fun STUFF! My oversized Blue Boy and Pinkie prints darn near sold. A
couple came back no less than three times to look at them, but it was a no
go in the end...darn it anyway!
The view on the other side of the booth. This end was more of the French
style side and the other side had more of a Cottage style theme.
Love this pair of antique table chandeliers!
Lots of French style Cameo Creations pictures, a charming picture of a couple
playing cards and a lovely 1940's Cordey lamp from the Cordey China Company.
Love these adorable lamps! They are made of bisque and have the most
adorable pink trimmed shades. They did not sell (what the heck?!) so they
will be available for sale on the web site soon!
So there you have it...a little glimpse at my antique booth. I took these pics in
about 30 seconds before the show started so they are not the greatest, but
you get the idea. It sure was a fun show and profitable too! That is always
a nice bonus! (*_*)
On another footnote, I visit a lot of blogs out there on a daily basis and love
to leave comments, but I am one of the affected people these past four or
five days who have not been able to do so. I'm not ignoring you gals, I just
can't leave comments! I hope they get this fixed soon because I love letting
you all know how much I love what you are doing out there in blogland!
Have a GREAT long weekend!
