The show is on the 3rd Sunday of every month, April – October. It is an outdoor show at the Boone County fairgrounds that features about 250 antique and collectible dealers. Some dealers are out in the open while others are under cover. Food vendors are present at the show, too. I like the fact that dealers are not supposed to bring “new” items to the show.
I’m in the process of gathering lots of jewelry to sell. I’ve found that it’s best to have a great deal of jewelry and to have items in a variety of price ranges. I’ve sold to people who want junk jewelry for grandkids to play dress-up in or who want to use junk jewelry for craft projects. I’ve also sold very high end jewelry to serious collectors. That’s what’s fun about Burlington — interacting with all the different people and talking to them about their interest in vintage jewelry.
I plan to sell at Burlington each month in 2009. Hope to see you there!
