"You're My Blue Sky...

...you're my sunny day..." to finish the Allman Brothers lyric ... and that's exactly what our Allegan customers were enjoying over the weekend! What a golden season we've had this year, with few exceptions. Only one more to go. Allegan always goes by way too fast.
During the August show, early buy was something of a pleasant surprise, being super busy, unusual for this late in the season.
The show itself  was well attended and sales were steady, although we thought the great weather would draw a humongous crowd. Industrial was the top seller, with original paint close behind. Many dealers, like our neighbor Bottle Dan, whose booth is pictured, had begun to think about fall. Even though the summer has been mild, we're looking forward to the harvest season -- sweater weather, pumpkins, crows, owls and more. Look for some at our next show, this weekend's  Kane County. Check us out on Facebook later this week for a peek at what we are bringing. And click the link in our show sidebar more more information. See you there. xo

This Weekend's Allegan (MI) Antique Market: Everything old is new again!

Allegan Antique Market: If you follow us on Facebook (and we hope you do! if not, click the link in our sidebar to join the party right now!), you've already met this charming fella -- Vintage Joe, Circa 1973. He made his debut on our page a couple of weeks ago to help us promote the selling of his record collection during Grayslake's Vintage Vinyl show. And it turned out that he was a great salesman. So much so, that we've decided to add records to our permanent inventory. Make sure you check out their debut this weekend at the Allegan (MI) Antique Market. We will also have TONS of other wonderful finds, including furniture, smalls, handmades, graphics and more. Will be posting photos on Facebook later for a sneak peek. Additional show details can be found by clicking the link in our show sidebar. Do plan to join us -- the weather is supposed to be AWESOME ! See you there. Rock on. xo

ROCK ON! Vintage Vinyl and All Things Musical Special Feature for August Grayslake: Don't miss this weekend's Grayslake Antique Market. In addition to all the usual great stuff, this month's show features the popular show-within-a-show, VINTAGE VINYL. In honor of the occasion, Joe has gone through his own stash of classic rock and has two cases full of records to share. I tried to talk him in to posting his equally rockin' 1973 graduation photo, but so far, he has demurred. But don't let that stop you from joining us. There will also be vintage musical instruments, phonographs, radios, concert memorabilia and more. Plus LIVE MUSIC. Last year, the music show was extremely well attended and was loads of fun -- just like a party all weekend long! Don't miss it. Details are just a click away in our show sidebar. Vinyl not your thing? Not too worry! We have a terrific load of furniture, smalls, handmades, artwork and more in the works. Check our Facebook page later this week to take a peek! xo
