Glass Show- Information ??
- My wife and I collect CW and recently started selling it online and
at flea markets. Neither sell very well. We're thinking of Glass
shows. Were from Southern Wisconsin. Anyone have any ideas or
information to pass of good shows/contacts for the Midwest.

- The glass shows are not that great now either. they only want to buy the
very top mdse. and at a low price. High priced does not sell that well.
Shows are very expensive to do..there is booth rent that is steep ........
depending on the area of the show and how big it is....motel bills and then
food........plus your travel and gass $. so shows are no picnic either.
I just heard that one in San Antonio , Tx, the booth rent is about
425.........it ranges from 175 to about 600 for the top shows. My advice
is to buy when affordable, lay low a couple of years...the glass economy is
not that good now either. E-Bay is not all it is cracked up to be and
takes a whole lot of time. I for one do not that kind of time. Flea
Mkts..these are the cheap ways to go but then you compete with everyone
selling the same thing as you and cheaper than you and it is dirty unless
you are inside and it is clean. If outside and it rains or the wind comes
up and blows over a table that is the pits.......so thake your choice here.
