The annual 12 Horse Beer trade show was held yesterday, April 23rd and was again a great show. If you attended I am sure you will agree. If you missed attending, it was the best show yet.
The tables were loaded with many new treasures. Many walk in collectors attended, some bringing in items for sale. The sales were brisk and all attending appeared to have a barrel of fun. Another fantastic show lead by Brian Coughlin and the many supporting members. If you did not attend this year, make sure you put it on your calendar for next year. You will not be disappointed.
As they say, collecting beer advertising items is fun hobby but sharing information of your latest new find is always the proudest moment. Hope to see all of you again next year including many new collectors.
Believe me, after collecting beer advertising for over 45 years, you will always find a new item that you need, I did. The best part is meeting new collectors not active in the community commonly called "closet collectors" who provide new leads for beer items seeking a new home. Proof of senior advanced collectors finding new treasures was again a reality. Two other collectors who have been collecting more years than me found new finds to take home.
Share the word and who knows, maybe next years show will be even better than this year which is hard to believe given the outstanding success of the show just held.
In closing, the best part was seeing old friends again sharing memories of the good old days.
