"FALL"ing for the Springfield Extravaganza - Part I...September 27th, 2009 in blog, hot spots
OK - here's the first of a couple posts covering our weekend at the Springfield Extravaganza. We've been selling there for about 5 years and have had good shows (and a few not so good shows...) - this particular weekend was a GREAT show for us! The weather was as beautiful as it gets in Ohio in September - high 70s and sunny, and with over 2000 vendors to entice customers with unique finds, as well as great bargains - the fairground was packed with record crowds - and for us one of our best selling weekends as well.
The pictures here show some of the things we were selling, and I can say that the big sellers for us were silver platters, the wire cloches (we're gonna make more for the next show!), small pieces of furniture, and jewelry. We had set up a table with odds and ends of hardware, knobs, fixtures, architectural stuff, etc., that were "leftovers" from projects that we wanted to "liquidate" - and that all sold like crazy.
We made some new friends (pictures coming...), visited with some of our old friends - and entertained passersby (that's what we do - ha ha). It was huge fun and definitely an encouragement in the current economy. People are definitely out there buying to decorate, reuse and repurpose - and as we all know...vintage is definitely "in"!
So, that's it in a nutshell (we are in the Buckeye state)... I'll also be posting on the the sights at Springfield, and then another one on project pieces. Sorry, Sue - I've got so many pictures! ;)
The next Extravaganza is the third weekend of May 2010 - and we'll be there - selling (and doing a little buying when we have time) - so hope to see some more new JUNKMARKET Style faces!!
Take care! Kathy
