BOXBOROUOGH, Mass. — David Bornstein of Bornstein Shows and Tina Bruno of Flamingo Eventz, LLC are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached between the two organizations for Flamingo to assume management of the well known Boxborough Paper Shows. A Bornstein family tradition for 30 years, these are acknowledged to be among the finest paper, book and advertising collectibles shows in the Northeast.
Flamingo Eventz, LLC presents some of the finest, most innovative, successful, and respected book and ephemera fairs and antiques shows in the Northeast.
Held at the Boxborough Holiday Inn at 242 Adams Place, Boxborough, MA 01719, the shows will now be known as “Paper Town – The Paper, Book & Advertising Collectibles Shows,” and will be held starting Jan. 24, 2010.
Prominent exhibitors from across the Northeast will gather to present an outstanding array of fine, rare and unusual old books, maps, postcards, autographs, prints, posters, advertising, old toys, and much, much more. Collectors, dealers, and decorators alike all flock to these events for the best selection the market has to offer.
According to Mr. Bornstein, “We and Flamingo have been friendly competitors as well as personal friends for a number of years. As circumstances changed recently in our business the logical move was to work with folks who know us and respect what we have accomplished. This is the right thing to do for all concerned.”
According to Ms. Bruno, “Dealers and customers will notice little visible change with this transfer other than the modified name and our logo. The Bornsteins have put a lot of time and effort into making these shows successful and we plan to run them with an eye to that strong tradition and history. We will be adding our own unique brand of advertising and promotion,” she continued, “with just a touch of pink for Flamingo branding”.
Both Ms. Bruno and Mr. Bornstein have stated their desire for a seamless transfer of management, and that they will work as a team at the first show to ensure there are few bumps in that road.
The Brunos have over 25 years’ experience as antique dealers and over 15 years’ experience as professional antiques show promoters. They are members of the national Professional Show Managers Association (PSMA), and John Bruno is an antiques appraiser and television personality who has appeared on numerous weekly shows appraising and discussing antiques.
Dealer and customer inquiries should be directed to Flamingo Eventz, P.O. Box 157, Rochester, NH 03866, via telephone to 603-509-2639, via e-mail to FlamingoEventz@metrocast.net.
