Over the Moon Show Cancelled

Right now, my wife Anita and I, should be in Lawrenceburg, Indiana doing the Over The Moon Vintage Market but, it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus.

It sucks because we spent months preparing for the show, buying inventory, painting antiques, making home decor items and pricing everything. Some of the items that Anita wanted to sell, she now has listed on Mercari and Facebook Marketplace in order to drum up some cash. She’s doing okay with it, but it’s nothing like what the sales would have had been at the show. What really sucks is that the two antique malls that Anita sells at are currently closed so money is really tight right now.

Here are the garden spoons I made back in the winter that I wrote about. I was hoping they would be a hit so I could determine if I should spend the time to make more. Now I’ll just have to wait.

Unfortunately, my huge display cabinet I built a couple of months ago will now have to remain in the basement until the next show in December. I was really looking forward to seeing how Anita would decorate it.

In all honestly, with everything that’s going on in the world, the cancellation of the show is small potatoes compared to what some people are going through with this virus. It’s during times like these you really need to count your blessings. Hopefully, things will be back to normal by the middle of June. Stay safe everyone.

  1. Really sorry to hear this. I know you two worked hard. Just try to find the good in all of this, and like you say maybe it will all be over soon. Hang in there and be safe!

  2. Two of the big boat shows that I used to do, and that friends still do, have been “delayed”. I’ve never thought much of rain dates, and I don’t think that delayed show dates would be much better. Unless you do shows it’s hard to get your head around how much business you drum up in the weeks, or even months, following the show. Hope things improve.

    1. Yeah the Spring was canceled so now it’s just going to be the Holiday Show in December. What really sucks is all the antique shows are cancelling as well which means we can’t even buy new inventory for when things get better.
