Our 2017 mini lamp convention was held at Adamstown, PA from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, 2017. Friday night we held a gathering in the hotel breakfast room followed by room sales and visiting.
Since the convention was held in conjunction with the fall Extravaganza, there were a lot of opportunities to shop for lamps and everything else all day Saturday. The weather was good so there were a lot of outside dealers set up along with all of the antique malls that are there year round. Members found all kinds of treasures to take home. One member found so many things that she was wondering how she'd get it all on the plane to go back home! That's a good problem to have.
Saturday night we had our group meal, and there was so much food that no one went away hungry. Then the rest of the evening was spent with more room sales and visiting. Sunday was our business meeting including a talk by Bob & a web site demonstration by Kathy, plus show & tell. After the meeting, anyone who wanted to come was invited back to the Gresko's to see their lamp collection and the various other collections in the house.
The weekend flew by, but everyone enjoyed seeing old friends, making new ones, hunting antiques & talking lamps. It was a fun weekend!
