News-Antique.com - May 03,2011 - GRAPEVINE, TX, May 3, 2011--Promoters recently announced Grapevine, Texas will be home to a new show focusing entirely on vintage jewelry. Vintage dealer Melissa Sands and Promoter Eric Miller have teamed up to bring the show to the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
"It's rarely a question of if vintage jewelry will sell," says Sands adding that while everyone loves vintage jewelry, the most typical jewelry buyer falls right in line with the demographics in North Dallas. "There's already been an enthusiastic response to the show. This is an ideal specialty show for the region."
Dealers will be bringing a variety of vintage costume jewelry along with vintage and antique fine jewelry to the Grapevine Convention Center, March 16-17, 2012.
Sands says the dates were chosen to provide an opportunity for dealers to add a show while traveling to Texas for Round Top. She also says preliminary interest from dealers has been strong and expects to fill the 23,000 square foot convention center.
The Grapevine Convention Center was chosen because of it's easy access and location among some of Dallas's most prominent suburbs. Moreover, the town is an attraction in itself.
"Grapevine is located among the regions most vibrant suburbs including Southlake, Westlake and Colleyville in the fourth largest MSA in the country and is easily accessible from throughout the region," Miller says.
Dallas and Fort Worth residents are already accustomed to visiting Grapevine for other shows and festivals and Miller says the location also means dealers will have an enjoyable destination. "Having an enjoyable experience is an important component to both wanting to travel to a show and having another reason to come back," Miller says.
The traditional Main-Street neighborhood with shops, restaurants and wine-tasting rooms is within walking distance of the Convention Center. There are plenty of comfortable hotel options at all price levels.
