Antique & Vintage for the Holidays.December 16th, 2011 in member junk
From Sue: Please let me introduce you to Jon Jenkins of Jenkins Management. Jon is now an honorary contributor here at JMS and a long time antique show promoter. I have the pleasure and opportunity of working with Jon on two of his upcomiing shows; The Vintage Market Place in Nashville, TN in February and the Springfield Extravaganza in Ohio in May of 2012. I am very excited to be a part of these projects and look forward to developing something fresh and exciting in our industry. Stay tuned as all the details unfold.

From Jon: My earliest memories include being around the antique business. I set up at my first show at age 3- selling $19 and buying a Christmas tree (dad was in the booth next to me- these were much simpler times). As I grow older and now have a child of my own, I look back and realize that most of my special Christmas memories don't necessarily involve toys, electronics, clothes or money, but presents from family members that were gifts from the antique world. Whether it was cast iron still banks, T-206 baseball cards, marbles, cool college sports memorabilia or things that still are in our home, those things stand out as deeply personal gifts, rather than mass produced items that come and go with time. This holiday season think about giving something from the past, which might have a great chance of creating memories into the future.
