July 4th Weekend Rocks At The Collinsville Antiques Company Of New Hartford, Connecticut

Come See The Swap-A -Roos At The Collinsville Antiques Company Of New Hartford, Connecticut, July 4th Weekend

There is a lot of moving and shaking going on at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut.

Here's The Scoop.......

Here is the scoop, as of Friday, I counted NINE swap-a-roos of dealers moving their booths from one place to another in this 22,000 square foot former Waring factory on Route 44. Oh and that leaves about 90 other booths that stayed put. Collinsville Antiques Company is one of the largest and most successful Antique Malls in New England!

Kitsch n Stuff (My Shop) Is Now In The Front Section At The Collinsville Antiques Company

And you can count me in the mix...I moved my shop Kitsch n Stuff from the back of this awesome Antique Emporium to the front of the store. Hey...when good "real estate" have to go with the flow.

Just Ask......
So if you are a regular at The Collinsville Antiques Company and you can't find some of the dealers you frequent...just ask.....they are still there...but in a new spot.

The great thing about all these changes at The Collinsville Antiques Company is that the dealers brought in lots of NEW furniture, collectibles, decor etc.

So What's up With The Booth Swapping?

So why do you ask did the dealers decide to swap and move? The answer is person started the change and than before long it was a chain reaction.

Shlepping Is The Name Of The Game

At times this week, I thought the moving and shaking was kind of comical.....we all worked our tails off shlepping our stuff...but after all we are antique dealers...this is our way of life!
