We finally finished loading the 2 trucks last night around 11pm. Then we were up at 4:30am to throw our luggage and computer in with us and head off to Charlotte!
We started unloading about 10am. After working all day long trying to set up, we are still not completely done, but close enough to earn dinner at Denny's.
There are a lot of stories, or maybe urban legends about clients spending obscene amounts of money at these shows. I heard one such story a few months ago in Atlanta. It was about a woman who walked into the show on the very last day with her interior designer and checkbook in hand. Many of the antique dealers who were showing there had already packed up their trucks to go home. This woman ended up spending roughly $40,000.00 in about 30 minutes from the dealers who decided to stick around the last few hours of the show. You just never know what is going to happen. Tomorrow could easily be a day like that. Personally I would be tickled if I sold a few picture frames, and maybe a chalkboard. I will let you all know tomorrow night how it went and will post some pictures.Time to get some rest.
