Fiddler's Inn Antique Show--Rain-Rain-Go Away!

We just returned from Nashville---what a fun but wet time! There was rain, sleet and snow, but more importantly---there were customers in the mood to buy! I didn't get rich from the show, I still can't retire, but it was worth it and we look forward to the next one. Several repeat customers that we had just seen at the Music Valley Show. Here is a look at the weather on opening morning!

This is my Gary--known that morning as the Weather God--checking out the situation!
This is a shot of the outside parking space where all of the furniture and larger items were. The white flecks in the picture are snowflakes! We only had one day of uncovered merchandise. It's hard to sell when it's covered up, so we sold our smalls from inside the hotel room! It was cozy in there.

Finally, uncovered and dry outside!

Another outside shot.

Now for the inside. This was all set up on 2 6 foot tables. A lot of stuff!

The little boxes on the wooden stacker were old herb boxes from a pharmacy. They all went home with one collector. Many of them still had the herbs inside.

I love red and white and this part of the display looked pretty. Several Old Judge Coffee Jars with one having the original label.

More smalls--cookie cutters, rag balls and framed post cards.

An overall shot of the room.

Great pictures--pages from an old book. Also some candles.

A family of rag dolls.

All in all, we had a wonderful time. Scott Jenkins and his crew went out of there way to be helpfull to everyone. Including the goodie bag! Tricia and Ellen from The Red Door Antiques in Eddyville Kentucky stopped by. Chatted with Scarlett Scales, and had dinner and too much fun with our friends Doug and Ty Wyant from Cassapolis Michigan. They were set up at Heart of Country. Ty had started a blog " Wyant Antiques" so be sure to check it out. They specialize in Sports, Folk Art, Americana and anything of interest! Our friends Tina and Dennis came down from home and stayed a couple of nights, so of course more dinner and fun!
Be sure to check my blog tomorrow. I have a really cute St. Patrick's Day collectible to show.
Until next time,
