EVANSVILLE – The January Collectors Carnival Antique & Collectibles Show is still one of the best for many of Collectors Carnival’s antique dealers.

The specialized show’s smaller size draws a knowledgeable shopper looking for quality antiques and collectibles which result in consistently good sales for the January show dealers.

The timing of the show also helps. With the show always on the last weekend in January, shoppers have typically recovered from the holidays, are tired of being couped up and have some Christmas money to spend.

This show, the first of four in the Collectors Carnival 2010 schedule, will be Jan. 30-31 at the Vanderburgh County 4-H Center in Evansville, Ind. Promoted by Brent and Suzie Pace since 1992, the Collectors Carnival shows have proven to be well advertised, organized and operated over the past 17 years.

The Jan. 30-31 Antiques & Collectibles Show will fill two heated buildings with approximately 100 dealers from Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio and beyond. Show hours and admission: Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m.-4 p.m., $2 per person; Saturday Preview Shopper 7-9 a.m., $5 per person; Friday Setup Shopper 3-8 p.m., $15 per person.

The entire 2010 four-show schedule along with contracts, building maps, driving directions, hotel information, and more is available online at http://www.collectorscarnivalshows.com or you may call to request a contract by mail at 812-471-9419.
