The main Extravaganza field opens at 10:00 AM on Thursday. If you are coming on Thursday you may want to arrive early. The Indoor Antiques Market opens at 8:00 AM. The permanent merchants always bring in special merchandise for the Extravaganzas. At 10:00 AM the field opens and all exhibitors may begin selling. The buyers will rush in followed by trucks and cars of exhibitors to the non-reserved spaces. Many of the dealers are meeting customers for whom they have made special purchases. Unlike internet selling, customers will get to touch and closely examine merchandise they are interested in purchasing. Although customers have been in mind for certain merchandise dealers will sell to anyone. You are encouraged to ask questions and learn about the merchandise. Most antique dealers have a passion for what they are selling. Although you may see many people rushing about from dealer to dealer you may consider taking your time. So much is missed in the rush.
If you are looking for specifics, by all means, ask. Most exhibitors have merchandise in many other locations and cannot carry all their items with them. Also, many dealers may have different merchandise for different shows. Don’t underestimate the vast network of antique dealers. They are not opposed to referring you to someone else. The hours for Friday and Saturday are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Don’t worry about missing everything by not shopping Thursday. Many dealers don’t even put some of their items out until Friday. Saturday morning usually starts with an addition of 100 to 200 new exhibitors, replacing some that have moved on. Each day is a different and unique experience.
Dress for all weather. The show runs rain or shine. Pack a bag so you can shed or put clothing on. And above all, wear comfortable shoes. You will be doing a lot of walking.
