The dust has finally settled from our fall Three Speckled Hens Antiques and Old Stuff Show, and we are still on cloud nine from the excitement and success of the show! This show’s opening day now holds the record for the largest attendance of any opening day, ever! The temperature was perfect, all of our dealers brought their A game, and the smiles of happy shoppers were abundant. We work very hard to bring our best to you, and everyone involved, dealers and Hens included, felt your appreciation and love all weekend long.
After another stellar show, we Hens felt the need to sneak away on a quick retreat to wind down from the showtime excitement and focus our thoughts on the 2017 show season. What better way to do this than at a luxury resort right in our own backyard! So off we went to the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, just off Hwy 46 East in Paso Robles, CA.
We checked ourselves in to two adjoining suites and acquainted ourselves with our private patios overlooking the radiant vineyards. Our spa bathrooms were totally over the top and an absolute dream! The art they have onsite is just spectacular and worth a tour around the property. We had a fantastic dinner at the resort’s restaurant, Cello, where we were even able to sample some of the wines produced from Allegretto’s estate vineyard.
The most productive time of our retreat came after dinner. We headed back to our suites, donned our pj’s, and with notebooks in our laps and wine glasses in hand, started pecking away at our plans for 2017. For those of you that may not know, our next show on May 6 & 7, 2017, will be a huge benchmark for us. This show marks the 10-year anniversary of the Three Speckled Hens Antiques and Old Stuff Shows!
Our first market was held in our little town of Templeton at the American Legion Hall. Having had only 15 dealers and 300 shoppers at our very first show, we just cannot believe how much our business has grown! At our last show alone, we welcomed over 145 dealers and approximately 7,000 shoppers throughout the weekend.
Through our planning, we all agreed that our greatest joy comes from the glowing texts and emails from our followers and shoppers expressing how much they loved the show, what wonderful one-of-kind treasures they found, and how much fun they had! Because of this, we have decided that the best way to celebrate 10 fantastic years would be to give back to all of you! Look for contests, giveaways and great deals! We will be putting together some great girlfriend and couples packages including Early Bird tickets, hotel stays, spa indulgences, wine tasting and so much more!
To kick off this season of giving back, we’re giving away **2 General Admission Tickets** to our spring show on May 6 & 7, 2017! Head over to our Facebook page now and share what you are most thankful for to be entered to win!
Keep watching! We are hard at work! In jeans or jammies, the Hens will make 2017 a phenomenal celebration of fabulous friends and fantastic finds!
