Red Wing Collectors Society to Expand Annual Convention Show and Sale!
Red Wing, MN – The Red Wing Collectors Society announces new opportunities for sellers at their annual Show and Sale held in conjunction with their Annual Convention- Excursion Red Wing – July 9-11, 2015 in Red Wing MN.
The RWCS Board of Directors recognized that many Society members have collecting interest that lies beyond collecting Red Wing stoneware and pottery. With the Show and Sale slated for Saturday, July 10 time was of the essence. The RWCS Board and RWCS executive director Stacy Wegner worked quickly with a small, but driven committee of RWCS members to enhance the Show and Sale to meet the other collecting interest of Society members while still maintaining the focus on Red Wing.
The committee reviewed the show and sale parameters and decided on two significant changes for the 2015 Show and Sale: expand what items could be sold and offer open square footage selling spaces. The RWCS Board approved adjustments to the percent for antique and souvenirs to give sellers the opportunity to include quality antiques, American-made pottery, or other items related to pottery collecting or other period collectibles including furniture.
Expanding to include quality antiques opens the door to offer booth space square footage. The Booth Space option provides sellers the opportunity to design their own display and include period antiques like furniture for sale on the 2015 Show and Sale Floor Plan. The booths will be available in three sizes: Standard (10ft 6 inch W x 8ft D), Booth and Half (13ft W x 8ft D), and Double (21ft W x 8ft D).
“We are excited about these changes and hope that we will attract new Sellers who complement our existing sellers with American stoneware and complimentary pieces.” said RWCS President Larry Birks.
Mark your calendar now to come check out the Show and Sale, Saturday, July 11 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Red Wing High School at 2451 Eagle Ridge Drive, Red Wing MN. FREE ADMISSION and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
