Marburger Show Spring 2009

So, the spring show is behind us now. Seems like it went by so quickly, maybe too quickly. It was so awesome to see all our friends and commrades in the antique world and to meet some new ones. Thanks to all the bloggers who stopped by and said hello! The weather was not our friend though, and made some of the days a challenge. Especially the day we fought to keep our booths intact during 40 mile an hour winds! Luckily we did not suffer any losses but many did. There is nothing worse than hearing other dealer's inventory crashing to the ground around you and wondering if yours will be next. At times it felt as though the tent would take flight with all my treasures attached to it!

I felt this was my best offering to date, and though most were very careful with their money the trailer was a little lighter going home. Mr. Sweet Pea was especially proud of his industrial metal dresser that he painstakingly stripped to the bare metal. It turned out just as I pictured it would and it went to a good home. What was selling? Small items, mirrors and some smaller pieces of furniture. The big stuff not so much. But in these times I am grateful for the support of our customers at any level. And besides, we always have a great time as well! Here are pics of my booth~~please enjoy! More pics to follow of the talented dealers I call my friends...

Dear Shelly and Rex... we enjoyed seeing the two of you talented people an setting up with you at Marburger... I loved being there and enjoyed each day, inspite of the weather.... that I could do without.. I am not a good trooper when it comes to being cold, wet, windblown.. I fear my whiny self really shows... but as you stated we all seemed to wind up really great after all that weather fuss... see you soon... time flies..already I am planning our next booth design..

Mr. and Mrs. Pea, It was an utter delight getting to meet y'all and hang out (although not nearly long enough!). You are both great fun/
You're booth looks wonderful. Y'all did a terrific job of merchandising. I totally understand the wind thing. Our tent actually lifted its back legs once. All you Marburger girls (and guys) are so talented. I'd be jealous, but I like you all too much for that. Look forward to seeing you in the fall.
