Pack Up The Babies .... Everyone Knows ... About flea.o.logy!!

 We would like to thank Dennis Barker of the Collector for his fun and quippish article about flea.o.logy in the August edition of his paper. 

A couple of months ago, Cathie, our tertiary fleaologist, suggested that it would be wise as part of our 'get the word out' campaign, to put a small add in the New Century Collector, the Utah Antiquer's monthly bible.  I thought it was a great idea, so the next time the editor, Dennis Barker, came in to deliver a new crop of papers to Treasure's Antiques where I work, we struck a deal.  Dennis who hails from points north had not heard of our venture, and said he would like to come down and see what it is we do!!

It was great to see him at flea.o.logy, and he seemed to be having a great time, even finding a few treasures to take home with him.

We are excited to announce that his half page feature article was published in the August New Century Collector.  I have printed the a scan of the cover of the collector so you can now rush to your nearest Antique Store and pick one up a free copy!!  The Collector is a great paper, besides including maps to help you get to your favorite stores, there are articles on new businesses, and even articles to teach you about different areas of antique collecting.  And now .... ta da ....  you can read up on flea.o.logy as well!!

Our regular shoppers may even spot a picture of themselves at the July sale.  The article itself is well written.  Of course every venture needs an element to keep it from being absolutely perfect, which this one almost was, other than the announcement of our next sale date being off by five days ... fortunately on the calendar in the Collector the dates are correct, so come and see us again on September 2nd and 3rd.  Please note that if you can't come Friday all dealers are bringing fresh merchandise on Saturday as well!!  See you there!!
