Nashville Press Release


Nashville Feb 10-13 400 dealers booked in Three Antiques Shows


Book signings, preview of new publication, and Amish quilt exhibit add to the special interest for ANTIQUES WEEK IN NASHVILLE at Tennessee State Fairgrounds and Nashville Convention Center


Nashville, Tenn. - Jenkins Management announces their two shows at Tennessee State Fairgrounds, ANTIQUES AT MUSIC VALLEY and TAILGATE ANTIQUE SHOW in conjunction with the ANTIQUES AND GARDEN SHOW at Nashville Convention for close to 400 exhibitors in Nashville at Antiques Week, Feb 10- 13, 2010.



This combination of the three shows offers customers, “More diversity”, according to Jenkins spokesperson, Jon Jenkins. “ The three shows working together in marketing and publicizing these events as ANTIQUES WEEK IN NASHVILLE, offers a comprehensive and wide ranging group of shows that are attracting national attention” he added. “With country, formal, garden, industrial, modern, continental, Americana, folk art, and decorative items to choose from, these 3 shows give patrons for their personal collections, decorators with clients, or professionals in the field an opportunity to shop one of the largest inventories in the country”.



ANTIQUES WEEK IN NASHVILLE consists of three events. Jenkins Management produces two shows at Tennessee State Fairgrounds, ANTIQUES AT MUSIC VALLEY and THE TAILGATE ANTIQUES SHOW. The TAILGATE ANTIQUES SHOW will open Thursday Feb 11 at 10:00 AM for early buyers with general admission at 1:00 PM. ANTIQUES AT MUSIC VALLEY will open at 6:00 PM for their preview party which includes a splendid array of hors d’oeuvres, ‘sweets, meats, and treats’ along with a cash bar for patrons. The ANTIQUES AND GARDEN SHOW opens Wednesday evening at the Nashville Convention Center with a gala preview party.


For the first time Jenkins is providing a free shuttle from the Fairgrounds to The Convention Center. This service, which begins Thursday February 11th, allows show customers to take advantage of free parking at the Fairgrounds rather than finding a lot with space available downtown.


Special events for the shows will include an internationally displayed and published Amish quilt exhibit from the personal collection of dealer and collector Darwin Bearley; a book signing by the author of At Home in Tennessee, Donna Dorian; and also the Premier of Jill Peterson’s new magazine, A Simple Life . The book signing, sponsored by Mad Anthony Books, will run Friday afternoon; Peterson’s magazine will be premiered during the MUSIC VALLEY ANTIQUES SHOW preview party, where she is also an exhibitor; and the quilt display will run the duration of the MUSIC VALLEY SHOW in the exhibition area
