A Paradigm Shift: 2011 Tri-Cities Antique Show . . . with a twist of vintage!
By: Ann Steiger  -  4/30/2012

The traditional antique dealers who have supported this event during it’s over 30 year lifetime, were just a little nervous . . . actually, really nervous.  The 2012 show launched a new beginning for the Tri-Cities Antique Show . . . remaining both a traditional antique show and becoming a vintage market!

To balance out the changes, the advertising budget was increased to market the event. The result was an increase in the gate attendanantique show washington, tri-cties antique show, vintage market, tri-cities, yakima, spokane, portland, hermiston, pendleton, seattle, washington, oregonce and a building full of happy dealers!

I felt it was important to send out a thank you letter to each and every dealer who participated this year, who joined us on this adventure, and to those who were unable to attend for a variety of reasons.

Here is what I said -

You were with us! THANK YOU!

Together we recreated this Tri-Cities Antique Show . . . with a twist of vintage.  In two days, Friday and Saturday, our customers made those decisions to purchase a treasure, not just kick those tires.

We “morphed”, ever so slightly, with the traditional antique show format and added show dealers who are the cutting edge of the vintage market.   

Our plan for the future is to continue with a strong base of antique and collectible dealers and add various vintage elements.  Bottom line, it looks like everyone benefited from this change: our gate attendance increased by over 35%!

Stick with us! Our 2013 for the Tri-Cities Antique Show . . . with a twist of vintage! dates are Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9, 2013.  We will return to the TRAC Center in Pasco.  We will be looking for a few more awesome dealers and some exciting additions to our popular Glamour Trailer Rally.  We will also be increasing our advertising program, again.

The Tri-Cities Antique Show . . . with a twist of vintage! launches both the traditional antique show season and the vintage market show circuit.  Join us next year!
