What If They Had a Show and No One Came?

This was the view of the walkway much of the time at the Lake Geneva Antique Show & Sale. They can't all be winners and sometimes doing "okay" has to be viewed as a major victory!  It came to light during the event that much of the advance advertising went out with the wrong dates on it.  

Among the meager crowd, The Frightened Hare of Racine found buyers for some of their beautiful furniture.

The content of the show was skewed heavily toward the wealthy mature buyer. Booth after booth was loaded with fine jewelry and silver.

It was nice to see a couple of my regulars there, and fun to meet a few others that appreciated my honest  old survivors.
Come see us another venue!


  1. Wow! How awful is that! I would definitely want a refund from the promoters!

  2. You sure have a way with words! You did not even mention the 100+ degree weather. :-( Your booth looked really cute, as usual. We really loved seeing your George Washington and that wonderful antique scrapbook.

  3. What a nightmare.... I always have a fear that I will show up on the wrong days for a show....

    I believe that I would definitely not be happy...

  4. Sooooo sorry it wasn't the Best for you... I think we've ALL had shows like that one time or another... I just know you'll have "knock-Your-Socks Off SaLes" at JUNK BONANZA!*!*! Jeanine, ChiPPY!-SHaBBy!

  5. It does happen... I have always found that if one day is awful, the next usually makes up for it. I had one day a few years ago where I had three refunds in one hour over a 1000.oo! Yikes!
