Bishop show - April 2012 in Chicagoanyone else going this year?
Posted 09 February 2012 - 06:28 AM
Just curious...is anyone else planning to go this year? I am already planning my list of "what to look for" for current project, and of course, allowing $$ for those "oh heavens, I KNOW I don't need this--but I simply must have it!" items that ALWAYS catch my eye (and wallet).
Thankfully I will have a bit more cash to spend this year, so I won't be in and out in 5 minutes (I hope)...LOL

I live close to the 3 Blind Mice and IMA show locations, so I will head to all three that weekend.
3 show in one weekend?! I knew about the Bishop but not the others. Maybe if I start buying lottery tickets now I can win a jackpot in time to visit all three. How fun!
making big plans for little things

Are these other Shows about the same size(amount of vendors and displays) or larger? I was a little disappointed in the size of the Dallas show.
The Chicago Bishop show in April is the largest show in the US (http://www.bishopshow.com). The Philadelphia show in November is also very large (http://www.philadelphiaminiaturia.com). and there is the Good Sam show in California in October with about 120 dealers.

If I can make it down to Orlando for the Molly Cromwell show next weekend I'll probably do some shopping, but won't make it to Chicago this year. Maybe I'll display / sell the houses at next year's show.
I'm surprised how many members of the GL family were at the Chicago show and didn't stop by and say, "hey, I'm so-and-so from the GL forum". I wouldn't have had anything to show at all if Brae hadn't come to the rescue and Beverly gave me a much needed break on Saturday, but I don't remember anyone seeing anyone else. Since I don't know what most of the members look like, I didn't know who was who at the show.

If you saw a half-crazed lady with 'blinders', winged sneakers and muttering "No, I mustn't stop" to herself fly by...THAT was ME!! It was quite a let-down (I barely remember even being there..sigh)
I plan to rectify that this year though. I am going to go to the preview show and spend the entire day if I wish, taking it ALL in.
AND, buy something totally frivolous if I want to!!!

I was "off the beaten path" but still seen by anyone who bought a ticket to see the show. My houses were right behind the ticket table! I liked that my display didn't cause traffic jams for everyone else and had some overflow space just past it. With all the shows going on that weekend, I couldn't imagine trying to fit all three into one trip.
