I have a really good group of dealers right now and I hope they all stick with me through the lean times of summer. We have had fairly good attendance up until this past weekend. A card show is only as good as the dealers and customers who attend. So please mark your calendars for Saturday, July 18, 2015, I need all hands on deck.
Things weren’t much better Sunday at the Wilmot Flea Market. There was a nice crowd but not a whole lot of sports card collectors. I’m planning on hitting the Wilmot Flea Market again on Sunday, July 5, 2015. I need to sell a lot more cards to keep attending the flea market.
Next Saturday, June 27, 2015, I am setting up at the American Legion show in Jackson, Michigan. Former Tiger pitcher Dan Petry is slated to sign autographs. I’ve done the Jackson show once before and did not have a particularly good day, even though there was a nice crowd. This does not seem to be a show for vintage set collectors. I may be wasting my time and energy lugging all my binders out to this show. I am trying to think of a creative way to set up for this show. At the last one, I noticed that several dealers seemed to do well by spreading out a couple hundred cards on their tables -- I may go this route. I have a few days to think about it.
On Sunday, June 28, 2015, I am setting up at the Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale, Illinois. It will be nice to be back at an Illinois show. If you are near Jackson, Michigan, on Saturday, or Bloomingdale, Illinois, on Sunday, come out and see me! I need customers!!!!
