We Had a Great Time at the Portland Antique Expo.....

We truly enjoyed the show......  

It was our first time to do the Expo, so we were not sure what to expect.  I was a little nervous since I haven't done a show this size and I was concerned about the turnout due to the economy.

Setting Up......

My fears were put to rest Friday morning when the doors opened to "Early Admission" buyers.  Our furniture pieces were selling as fast as we could put them up.  After the initial burst of selling, it slowed down long enough to get the rest of our inventory out and up on display.  

We knew we needed some additional furniture, so we brought some more from our storage on Saturday.....those sold too!  Friday and Saturday there was a consistent flow of people through the show.  Sunday was slower, but we were told it would be that way.

We both have sore muscles and feet, but are full of enthusiasm and excitement for our upcoming April show, Whimsical Wishes, in Camas.  Don't forget to enter our Celebration have until the luckiest of lucky days, St. Patty's Day, March 17th at 5:00 pm PST to post a comment here

We met some truly wonderful people at the show and got a chance to visit with some of our other blog friends who had booths there, as well. 

Here's a list of some of our friends who have written about their Expo experience:

Tickled Pink - Isabel
A Day in the Life - Auntie Joy
Today's Country Store - Kris & Amy

I'll add more, if I find them!
