The initial 1st "Hoot & Howl Show" is now history and in the record books. Another fun filled event sponsored by the local BCCA 12 Horse Chapter. Nearly all the tables were sold, filled with many fine beer advertising items. The walk in's were great in number as always. Buying and selling among club members was outstanding in a friendly atmosphere. What started out as gloomy rainy day was suddenly filled with bright lights in a clean hall. Fun was meeting old friends again after a long hot summer. The morning started out with fresh cider from Kelly's Farm with three varieties old fashioned fried cakes. Coffee was offered as well as wake up, if needed. At noon time freshly prepared catered food was offered at a reasonable prices.
Yes, even an advanced dedicated collector like me was able to find an item "one I simply could not live without". Mine was a Genesee Christmas poster sign never seen before by me from the 1940s time frame for only $10. After collecting Rochester, NY beer advertising for more than 46 years, adding anything is a rewarding experience no matter how little the price.
Message to all that did not attend today or those who have been thinking about attending, you are always welcome to attend our regular "Spring Show" planned for early next year. You will not be disappointed. No refunds on admission if not fully satisfied since the admission is free. How can you go wrong? If you have an old beer advertising item that you are thinking about selling, bring it to the next show. You might be surprised to find out how much it is worth.
A big thank you to JR and all the supporting members for another great show. Truly another great show and will probably become an annual event.
As always, take care.
