Canyonville or Bust

Canyonville 2010 

February 11, 2010

Dear Dealers and Fellow Collectors;

October seems like light years away. And yet, it will be show time before we know it. The Jefferson State Antique Bottle Collectors are pleased to announce the continuation of our ongoing relationship with Seven Feathers Casino Resort and to let you know that the show is a go for 2010 on Friday October 15th and Saturday October 16th. Mark your calendar!

2009 again showed that despite the economy, Canyonville continues to be an increasingly popular attraction for bottle and insulators collectors alike. 2009 saw roughly 70 sales tables and 6 display tables spoken for. Early bird attendance was up, way up, for 2009! Sales again were strong and most dealers reported that they did as well or even better than in previous years; again despite the economy. And, true to form, a lot of “sleepers” made their way into the show. Several dealers that I've spoken with since the show commented that they were able to network with locals, gaining access to quantities of "stuff " after the show that were real bargains!

We were able to break even last year and that has resulted in no increase in table space fees. The new table arrangement that we laid out last year was well received and dealers commented on how much better it was compared to previous years. We will be able to accommodate a total of 74 sales and eight display tables for 2010. First come - first served will again be important. Everything that you’ve come to appreciate about the show; plush carpeting and comfortable seating, linens and table drapes, valet parking, great lighting, the onsite appraisals and live auction action, plus the chips 'n dip & no- host bar on Friday evening remains as well. And of course, the entertainment, dining and wagering opportunities that Seven Feathers has to offer is also tough to beat. We’ve received reduced block room rates this year. Just mention "Jefferson State Bottle & Insulator Show room block" to receive your preferred rate.

Our website will be up and running soon and we will begin accepting early dealer reservations starting around June 1st. On behalf of Bill, Dale, Scott and myself, we’d like to personally extend our invitations to you, our valued dealers and fellow collectors, to join us on October 15th and 16th for Canyonville 2010~.

See you in October at Seven Feathers Casino Resort, where you can Expect The Best!
