ON FRIDAY NIGHT Customers were greeted Outside the Main Front Door Entrance by the Booth pictured above in the top photo... REALLY!?!?
I just couldn't hold my tongue on this one!!!
~However, once you walked through the door, the HoLiDay B*L*I*N*G abounded, as seen in the bottom photo... OUTSIDE, across the parking lot from the Main Indoor Building, a group of Local ViNtaGe Dealers "Tented-Up with Heaters Going"... Their Little Camp-Like Area was Soooo inviting!!!
Customer comments circulated~ Regarding not as many quality vintage dealers this year, Some of their favorite vendors not being set up this time, & the Expense of Early-Bird Buying, to be a disappointment...
I'd LoVe to Hear Your Comments either
on the Blog -or- via Email...
