Letter to the Editor: Commitment leading to longevity

Dear Editor,

Enclosed please find an article and picture, which we hope you will be able to use in your publication about our upcoming 42nd Annual “Collectors Showcase,” to be held in Bakersfield, Calif.

We are very proud of the longevity of the Showcase and for what this represents about a locally produced, quality antique and collectibles show. We remain enthusiastic and committed.

We all recognize that in a struggling economy, the antique business has suffered; but thankfully, because of publications such as yours, we are emerging with renewed interest and attendance at shows.

As a long-time subscriber of Antique Trader, my interest in all areas of collecting remains strong and vibrant, as I look forward to reading and learning all facets of collecting in the Trader. I have shared many of your articles about improving sales and interest with my fellow club members. It inspires us to strive for the best in collecting and promoting.

Thank you for your consideration and continued excellence in publication.

— Barbara Fields
