ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The Atlantique City Antiques & Collectibles Show announced the addition of Jacquie Morton to its staff starting last Dec. 1. Morton will be the primary contact on dealer booth sales and corporate sponsorships for Atlantique City.
Morton is no stranger to the antiques trade – behind the counter or out front. She brings 17 years of experience selling advertising in the antiques business at such titles as Antique Trader, Cotton & Quail, Toy Trader, Postcard Collector, Antique Review Midwest, Northeast Review, Today’s Collector, Baby Boomer and Big Reel magazines.
Morton and her husband own an antiques store in Central Wisconsin called Memory Market. The shop (a former grocery store) has been in her husband’s family for three generations. She intends to bring the lessons learned there to Atlantique City. Morton will specialize in booth sales and corporate sponsorship opportunities to include the show’s Web site, event promotion, signage and the online merchandise locator system called FindIt! Morton will work directly with Show Manager Eric Bradley and Show Coordinator Karen Thulien.
Morton’s addition is one of several major changes for Atlantique City. Ticket prices will now be $15 for Saturday, $10 for Sunday and $25 for a weekend pass. All advance ticket buyers get in one hour early before the box office opens at 10 a.m. This season’s theme is Vintage Sports Memorabilia.
For more than 20 years, Atlantique City has featured an eclectic array of antiques and collectibles inside the Atlantic City Convention Center. Presented every March and October, it is the largest indoor show in the Mid-Atlantic with more than 400 dealers who specialize in 18th, 19th and early 20th century antiques and quality pop-culture collectibles. Exhibitors from 41 states and Europe bring estate jewelry, furniture, silver, paintings, fine art, costume jewelry, funky finds, antique toys, curiosities, Tiffany, bronze, comic collectibles, cast iron, vintage robots, vintage fashion, and amazing finds! Each season Atlantique City features a celebrity appraisal booth where everyone can bring a piece from their collection for a free appraisal.
Future show dates are Oct. 18-19, 2008.
