Show Details

Lyle and Dale have graciously offered to host the show in their auction venue. We will occupy the smaller of the two rooms for our display area and the larger room being used for the auctions. A dinner will be served Friday evening, courtesy of the Chupps.

This year’s show will have two auctions. The Friday auction will be our typical auction for all the items brought to the show to be auctioned. The Saturday auction will be for cataloged items. Any items in this auction need to be in Chupp’s hands no later than May 1st. These “cataloged” items will be photographed and inserted into the “catalog” and advertised ahead of time. BOTH of these auction will carry a 15% fee. This is different from past auctions but is standard for auction houses. Lyle and Dale have been kind enough to provide the site for the show and are also providing a free dinner to all of the show attendees. They work very hard at their auctions and are always successful at bringing a lot of buyers to the auction.

The auction house has plenty of tables, chairs, and carts and there is ample room inside for displays. For those who want to vend only, there is covered room outside if the interior fills up. As always, custom displays are up to the individual collector. A great deal of collectors reside in this general area, so this should be a great show to see your fellow collectors and meet a lot of new collectors as well. Call Doug if you have questions regarding the show at 402-510-8845.

Other Notes

LaGrange County is a dry county and there are no alcohol sales in the area. If you are inclined to enjoy an adult beverage, you will have to bring it with you or go to a nearby county to purchase. Lyle does not mind if we have drinks onsite during the show, he just can’t provide it.

We are very grateful for Lyle and Dale offering up their location for the show! When you arrive, please take time to meet and thank them!
