Caption This??

Reviewing photos from Springfield last weekend, and for some reason, this is one of my favorites. Please help by providing an appropriate caption, winner to receive international fame and notoriety on a semi-unimportant blog of note. My best so far-

"Architectural Lost and Found" or "Look what the Extravaganza dragged in"

Your thoughts?

Springfield and the week ahead.

After what can only be described as a very good Springfield Extravaganza, I am attempting to recover, rest and get ready for the trip to Texas. Good crowds, good weather and mostly encouraging dealer reports make me think that better days may be on the horizon. We bought some really great things, including a grandfather clock, Pennsylvania chest of drawers, grain painted jelly cupboard and a few other things. Springfield continues to amaze. More tomorrow.

Nice Day for Shopping

Here is a picture from last weekend's Farmington show. Like I had mentioned, couldn't have been much better shopping weather. Finalizing the last few details for the Springfield show next weekend and eagerly anticipating the first Sunday of the NFL season today.

This Just In!!

On the road home from Farmington and Brimfield. Blogging from the passenger seat of the rental truck hoping that Pennsylvania is almost over. If there was only a way to move Pennsylvania north of Lake Erie and slide Ohio over, the drive wouldn't be so bad. Home for 1 night and off to Chicago to see U2 Saturday night. I was very encouraged by the results at Farmington. Shows still aren't great across the board, but I talked to many dealers who were very pleased with results. Wish things were more consistently good, but economy needs to keep moving in the right direction before we'll see that. Brimfield crowds appeared to be strong, but wasn't able to develop much of a consensus of how things went. I don't remember any better show weather from Farmington to Thursday of Brimfield. Hope it continues through Springfield next weekend. For those of you who have never been, Extravanganza almost has to be seen to be believed. Very busy booking spacesw and excited about it. I'll try to post photos later on today or tomorrow.
