The Pekin Marigold Festival is this weekend. Vendors are setting up today in Mineral Springs Park. Debi watched the store yesterday while I set up a sign near the park on Court Street. It will only be up until Sunday, but we want to let the folks at the festival know about the store.
We are excited to be open during the festival, and the events will culminate on Sunday when I set up two tables at the Pekin Bottle Show at the KC Hall. It runs from 8 am until 3, and I will be handing out fliers about “Spirit of the Past Antiques” www.spiritofthepastantiques.com while Debi and Jaime run the store from 12-5.
We had an outstanding first five days of September, but Tuesday and Wednesday were very slow. We wonder if between the Labor Day weekend and the festival will always be slow days? We expect this weekend will be very busy.
