We’re so glad you asked. Here are a few tips we’ve gathered over the years:
- If you frequent the Show, you probably have an exhibitor or two who works actively with and for you to find the items you are looking for. If you do not see something that you are interested in – Ask! Get to know the exhibitors who sell items you collect. You will see them year after year, and once they know you are serious, they will pick up things with you in mind.
- Have personal cards printed with your name and phone number and pass them out to an exhibitor with the item you are looking for jotted down.
- Know more about what you are seeing by reading books on the items you collect before you come to the Show. You will be more confident in your purchasing decisions.
- Because the Show occupies such a grand space, be sure to note the name and booth number where your favorite items are displayed. After hours of browsing, walking and talking it is easy to forget where you were when you saw that prized piece!
