Our booth was set up and waiting for the doors to open on the first day of the West Bend Antique Show on Saturday, January 18, 2014. We had spent a great deal of time on preparing for this event, readying a variety of antiques, many purchased on a recent Southern buying trip and on other adventures over the last year. The crowd was waiting for the doors to open on Saturday. Nona and Skip of NL Promotions always draw a large crowd for this great event and at their Elkhorn Antique Markets in summer.
This two day show has been and continues to be the place where we bring our best finds; we title them our “A” Game. It may be that time of year when you’re finally buying something for yourself instead of gifts for family, friends or co-workers. Or after the holiday decor’ was put away, you see a gap on the wall or a place around the room that needs filling.
What better place than an antique show to reward yourself with a special find for your collecting or decorating needs? Val spent the better part of two weeks just getting the antiques selected, priced and packed for this show. She chooses items from our stock that reflect current trends in the market; things that are hot and determining what is not. She does her best to group items that are similar, but at different price points, since pricing must reflect what the buyer is willing to pay.
Friday was setup, with some extra time to chat with our fellow dealers, companions from here and other shows. We have a look around to view the other booths and marvel at the great stuff different sellers have to offer. We even find a treasure or two for our own collections!
As always we had a great time, enjoyed the conversations with our customers, shared our stories and listened to their tales on the joy of finding antique treasures.
We will continue to search for the oddities you have come to expect from No Egrets Antiques, and hope to see you at Cabin Fever Flea Market at the Knights Of Columbus Hall, 1800 S. 92nd Street, West Allis Wisconsin. It will be held on Sunday, March 2nd. Just look for the guy with the tie.
