Chicago 2013 -- Who's Attending??


 Share

Recommended Posts

I was going through the forum and noticed there was a nice four page topic about the 2012 Chicago show(s). I was just wondering who is attending from here. I have seen a couple of people post, but not many.

I have to be in Atlanta that Monday through Wednesday to give some training presentations, but definitely plan on getting up there.

I just got my credentials for the Bishop Wholesale Show, which means driving up to Chicago Wednesday night after flying home from Atlanta, spending Thursday and Friday in Chicago, back to Indianapolis Friday afternoon and then back to Chicago for the retail portions of the Bishop and the 3 Blind Mice shows for the weekend. I am really looking forward to it since I missed last year. I just wish I had time to take in a workshop or two. That will definitely be in the plan next time around.

So...who's going???

I will be a vendor this year, but with all of the recent interruptions, neither house will be ready. I will be displaying two unfinished houses again this year. I'm also holding off on making reservations to vend anywhere else until they're both finished. Hopefully I'll have something to show in 2014.

Wow...I really expected there to be a bigger response. I figured brae would go (no hotel expense -- lucky!), but really thought more of us would be there. I missed out last year due to my travel schedule, but worked it out properly this year. I am looking forward to it. I can't wait to see Jeremy's work up close and will look for everyone else.

I was really hoping to go this year, even had someone to go with me, but don't think I'll be able to pull it off this year. :( I need to do earlier and better planning for next year.

So Jeremy, if you are still driving through Atlanta, I'd still love to try and catch up with you to see the houses!

I'm planning to be there this year too :) Saturday and possibly Sunday too. I can't wait and I hope to see Some Greenleafers there too. Last year I got to meet up with Deana (Chesterfieldzoo). It was so nice to see her face to face. I hope I get to meet up with you all

I still plan to go, but my wife is putting a lot of pressure on me to cancel due to recent medical issues. Unless things get worse or my doctor throws a wrench in the works next Monday, I still plan to stop at Miniature Designs from 10:00 to 10:30-ish.

I'll keep an eye out for you too Tracy, but if you see me making a bee line for towards Jane Graber's table, you might want to help clear a path :taz:

I like the fact that Jane's studio is less than 30 minutes away. It is too tempting.

Super! I'll see what I can do to meet there.

Oh I just read your other post. Looks like the doctor is on Monday, what day will you be at MD?

Hey guys, don't forget: MD is usually closed on Mondays unless you give them a call. I am going to try to stop there that Monday morning after my flight lands and take a look at what's left from the Attic Sale.

My plan is to see the doctor on Monday and depart on Tuesday around 4:30 a.m. I'll arrive at MD that morning around 10.

I really wanted to make it this year, but work had other ideas. If anyone gets a chance can they keep an eye out for glass bell jars/cloches. I've been looking for some nice ones for ages! I just need a vendor/artistan name. Thanks! Have fun guys :)

You can buy cloches in several sizes from Grapevine Miniatures, look under products- garden supplies :D

I'm having doubts. If I could cancel without getting black-listed by Tom, I probably would. What are the chances of selling anything when all I have to show is an unfinished Tudor house and the MacKenzie's foundation under repair? Not only do I not have anything new to show since 2011, neither of them are ready for delivery.

If my doctor tells me I need another surgery on Monday, I'm not sure he would be willing to wait two weeks either. Just like two years ago, it seems everything short of the sun not rising has occurred to keep me from getting to Chicago this year.

Tell him it is a great opportunity for you to do a little networking on your new furniture venture.

      The Kansas City show is coming up June 9 and 10 in Lee's Summit, MO. There are several classes available, including some new ones and another Dana Burton class.

      I'll be there both days and am signed up for several classes, plus Mom and I may be joined by all the ladies who are in our new mini club. Who else is planning to come?

      Greetings,
      I just wanted to let everyone know that CIMTA this year has wholesale & retail. By offering retail we were able to attract a lot more exhibitors that didn't want to wholesale.
      Please join us! The rooms are super affordable and if you sign up for our mailing list you get 75% off your tickets. That makes entrance only $3.75 for two days when you pre-purchase online.
      The rooms are super affordable, and the mailing list for discount tickets is here:
      CIMTA Retail Information
       
      Thanks,
      Jeremy Gonzales

      Hi all! There is a miniature show in Nashville, TN this weekend if you can make it. Miniature Collector had published that a miniature show in Nashville was cancelled. That is NOT this show. It should be a great time with lots of awesome vendors.

      Here we go! The NAME National Convention ends with a show this week and soon we are looking at several miniature shows throughout the US. Below is a list of shows that I will be attending as a vendor. This is very different from what I have done in the past, but things are different now. If you are going to any of these, please stop and say hello.
       
      August 15-16         Dayton, OH 3 Blind Mice Show
      August 22-24         Aztec Wholesale Show in Aurora, OH
      August 28-29         Chicago Fall Show from Tom Bishop
      September 5-7      Orlando Miniaturia
      September 11-12  Nashville, TN presented by Harville Productions
      September 18-19  Indianapolis presented by the Museum of Miniature Houses
      October 24            Louisville, KY
      November 5-8       Philadelphia Miniaturia Wholesale and Retail Shows
      November             Chicago Wee "c" Miniature Show (tentative)
       
       
      I know there are other shows, but these are the ones I am attending. More details on each as we get closer. The Bishop show will have more vendors than in the past. Orlando is a new show and it is a holiday weekend, so it is hard telling about attendance. It is on Disney grounds, so that may help.

      Hi All !! The Chicago Miniature Shows are just around the corner!!   :w00t:  :w00t:  I am surprised that there hasn't been more talk about it. 
       
      I know several forum members will be there. Who is attending?????
       
      I will be setup at the 3BM show at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Schaumburg.  I have attached a coupon for those attending to save $1 off admission. If nothing else, stop by and say hello.
