Our first visit to the Janesville, WI Antique Show was several years back, and set our desire to one day have a booth of our own at this well-attended event. This year we finally had our chance, and despite weather conditions that kept polar bears indoors, we had a very good show.
Our hosts are Steve and Thelma, two hard-working individuals that organize and conduct this event. What a great gathering of antiques and collectibles brought to the show by individual dealers from around the surrounding states. Whether your interest was limited to marbles or post cards, furniture or glass, jewelry or paintings, wall art or fancy lamps, sports collectibles or vintage cameras, toys or tools, primitives or Mid-century, one of the booths had just what you wanted.
Our weather was the worst in memory with snow and extreme cold, and yet many hardy folks braved the elements to purchase a special item for their collection, decorating or to wear. The chance to discuss our array of collectibles and listen to what drives the true collectors in the pursuit of one more object for their hobby of collecting is alway a lively chat. We look forward to participating in next year’s event and hope our luck with the weather is better than this year.
Our next event is the West Bend Wisconsin Antique Show, an NL Promotions production. The dates are January 18th and 19th. Nona and Skip (of Elkhorn Antique Markets fame) always put on a great event.
No Egrets booth will contain fresh antiques (Oxymoron) and collectibles gathered on a recent trip into the Southeastern states.
Our booth location on the back wall is the same place we have occupied for a number of years at this event. Watch for the No Egrets booth sign, and continue to check back for future shows and or estate sales we conduct. We’ll see you there.
