Flea-N-Tique Update

We finished our set-up this morning and we are having many shoppers stop by to look at the booth. The booth looks great and we have received many compliments on how well it is displayed. Hopefully, it will be a good day for us.

Took another stroll through the show and found some items to buy. I can not go into the show without buying something. I have my eye on some tools that if they are still there tomorrow, I may buy. I have included a new slide show.

Flea-N-Tique Show

The Trotwood-Madison Historical Society has a booth in the Flea-N-Tique Show at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. This is our first year to set up at the show and we have many items for sale.

The Flea-N-Tique is a Flea Market and an Antique shoe. It is held at the Montgomery Fairgrounds Coliseum Building, 1043 South Main Street, Dayton, Ohio. There are many booths there with a lot of unique antiques and collectibles. In fact, I bought an antique toy for our granddaughter tonight and have located an old vintage kitchen tool used to remove jars from a canner that I hope to buy tomorrow.

Admission to the coliseum building is $1.00, but, it is well worth the cost to visit even if you do not purchase anything. It is always a lot of fun to look at the antiques--many of the items I have seen in some of the museums that we visit. Admission to the coliseum is cheaper than admission to a museum and you can buy the items that you like which you usually cannot do in a museum.

Come out and support your Historical Society. Visit the show and stop by our booth. Linda and Janet will be glad to see you.

Kris Kringle Shop

Once again the Kris Kringle Shop operated by the Trotwood-Madison Historical Society is open for business. This is a fantastic little shop that has something for everyone--toys, dishes, dolls, villages, silverware, crystal, etc. There is too mush to try to list all of the items on sale. However, if you view the slide show, you can see more of what we have to offer.

The shop will be open December 3-5 and December 10-12 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Come out and find that one of a kind gift at a fantastic price. You will be glad you did.
