Selling vintage jewelry at the Burlington (KY) Antique Show this summer, I had more brides than I can count looking for rhinestone pins to add to a bridal bouquet.
Most of the brides I spoke to were looking for one showstopper piece to add to a bouquet of blooms.
Others were making an entire arrangement out of rhinestone pins and earrings.
I set up a space and sold jewelry this past Sunday at the Burlington Antique Show in Burlington, KY. I’m always nervous before doing these things because it requires a lot of advance preparation without knowing if there will be enough sales to make it worth the effort. I’m also nervous about thinking I’m going to get there too late. I arrived a little before 7am on Sunday and was definitely one of the last dealers to arrive but that’s about as early as I’ll ever be…..
Regardless of the slightly chilly and wet weather, a large group of enthusiastic people were at Burlington on Sunday. It’s always fun to meet new people and to see some that I sold to last year.
I would say that the majority of my sales were higher end costume jewelry and sterling silver jewelry. There were a few dealers and collectors that honed in on the higher quality jewelry and much of it was sold.
Now my challenge is to find more!
