At NORTHWIND PERENNIAL FARM'S
20th Annual Antique & Garden Show
in Burlington, Wisconsin...
"Word-Is" that attendance topped the charts at near "10,000"
shoppers!!!  ~ Something that this little gem of a show, with around 40 Dealers, wasn't quite equipped to handle (this time around)...  I heard from a good number of shoppers that the level of traffic had them walking 2 miles plus, to the Event Entrance!!! - REALLY!!!
 NO WORRIES ~ FOR NEXT YEAR...
All of the Show Issues, especially with closer parking...
 ease with item pickups... restrooms... food... etc. 
Will be resolved - By Next Year's Show!*!*!
NO ONE EVER ANTICIPATED SUCH A CROWD!!! 



Everything in this pic is LONG GONE!*!*!

 at 9am on Friday!!!
 ChiPPy-SHaBBy ShoPPerS were Lined-Up
 at my check-out table, along with every other booth
