Just a quick note to say THANKS to everyone for making the August Allegan a record setter for us -- what a great show! Picture-perfect weather (okay, it was kinda hot by afternoon, but not so humid), plenty of dealers, plenty of shoppers....we heard over and over about how much everyone was enjoying the show. That's just the way we'd hope.
Sales were strong across the board -- industrial, furniture large and small, garden, containers, handmades, ephemera all performed well.
We also got some good buys, but I was kinda late getting out there, so I'm sure I missed some great things, too. We decided long ago that our focus at shows was on our customers, less so on shopping. But late in the day, the shopping actually came to us -- a customer came in with some killer maps from a university clean-out. How fun is that!
