September Antique Trail Sale starts this Sunday!

Our main objectives are to increase the number of shoppers and buyers in your stores
and to promote all member stores of Antique  Last year I sent out a questionnaire to all members and an overwhelming majority agreed to participate.  There were only eight who did not wish to participate, and that is fine. Many stores already have
an established time for sales each year which have become traditions. We do not
want to interfere.  There are no rules as to what is on sale and how much discount,
etc. You may have a store full of sale items or one item or one booth or a few items
with a percentage off.  It is a sale!

If all of you participate in some way, it is now the largest antique sale ever! Now we just have to let everyone know about both the March and September sale every year!   It is often easy to obtain free publicity for scheduled events. Please send the info below to all your Facebook friends, email buddies, your local newspapers and radio stations.  Share it often on social media! Use one of the photos of your store to spread the word!
September Antique Trail Sale 
There are over 700 stores on in 10 southern states participating
in the September Antique Trail Sale! To see photos of the shops and malls before
you travel, go to the website and see each store's websites with
photos, maps, hours, description, etc.

Please tell us details of your sale on the calendar and/or facebook.  Here is an example of one trail member's sale:

I found these boots at a store on They were too small for
me, but what a deal!  Betty took the picture below in July.  The area was empty!  We
