Happy Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend in Indianapolis always revolves around the race. Went and had a great time. Thanks to all those who served our country and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Farmington then a break-finally.

Farmington is coming soon (June 12 & 13). Looking forward to our Connecticut show as it means getting to spend some time in a really scenic part of the country. Busy booking vendors. After Farmingon, only one show until Mid August (July Springfield). Looking forward to some down time and gearing up for the busy fall schedule.

Graham Jenkins- Artist- Age 2


Title- Angry Red Lines over Yellow
Artist- Graham Jenkins
Medium- Sharpie over latex and drywall

I believe the young artist might be making a political commentary. Is this the red line (tea party movement) striking a blow against the perceived yellow menace of big government?? I was able to google a method to remove said marker before mommy got home, lessening the penalty for both of us.

Birthin' websites is hard work.

Happy Mother's Day,

Hope all Mother's are enjoying a well deserved day of rest and appreciation. I will never experience childbirth from any other perspective than spectator(unless you believe those "Men Give Birth" headlines on the tabloids) but must pass along thanks to all of you who did. Job well done! I am currently in labor (bad pun) trying to deliver a new website for Springfield prior to next weekends Extravaganza. There are currently 4 people (me, developer in Las Vegas, programmer in Vietnam and another in Russia) trying to deliver this website on time. Working in 4 time zones also makes it fun. Stay Tuned.

Thoughts in Nashville

As most of you know, we have produced antiques shows in Nashville for over 25 years. The flooding and devestation have our thoughts with friends, dealers and customers who call Nashville home. Please keep them in your thoughts and we certainly hope for a speedy recovery and healing for one of our favorite places.

A Good Sign

In the past 24 months, we all seem to have been looking for a sign that there is light at the end of the tunnel on the economic front. I know there have been some positive numbers reported in the press, but those numbers are all very abstract. Improvement in the economy is very personal. Unless you have a house for sale, or are a real estate agent, the fact that home sales are up may be nice, but doesn't directly affect your pocketbook. I am happy to report that it looks like our May Extravaganza might come in at around 200 more vendors than last May. Our website traffic is also up 43% over the same period last year. I hope both these things mean we might be turning the corner.
