Raleigh Bottle Festival - Dealer Package Guide



Show Date: Saturday November 3, 2001 9:00am-5:00pm (setup 6:00am)

Welcome to the 1st Annual Raleigh Antique Bottle & Collectibles Festival. Unlike our indoor Show in the Spring, the Festival is an outdoor event on the lawn beside the Flea Market at the NC State Fairgrounds. The location and date were picked for two reasons: 1) the Flea Market gets a lot of built-in buyer traffic and 2) Nov 3 is the first weekend that the Flea Market reopens after the NC State Fair and is typically one of the busiest weekends of the year. Add this to the advertising we are doing to bottle collectors in the Southeast (NC, VA, MD, TN, SC, GA, FL, ...), and this should be one huge event with great sales for dealers and lots of opportunities to find that special bottle for buyers.

While the festival emphasis is on antique bottles, the diverse interests of the buying public will present our dealers with the opportunity to sell many other types of collectibles. So please feel free to bring your other table top antiques, advertising, and collectibles to sell.

We have the capacity for over 300 tables, which are located in the busiest part of the fairgrounds. Our grass area includes picnic tables and is partly shaded by huge oak trees. Bring a 50 foot extension cord if you need access to the nearby power outlets.

This package has everything you need for the festival. Our spring show was a sell-out and we expect this fall festival to be even bigger. So sign-up early and make your plans to attend a great event!

Included in this package are:

  1. Dealer Contract - fill out and return with payment ASAP to reserve your sales table. Two copies are enclosed - one to return and one for your reference.
  2. Show Flyer - please display in a public area to help promote our festival. Extra full page color flyers available, including postcard size - just ask and we’ll mail them.
  3. Map of Raleigh area, Fairgrounds, Full Table Layout, and Closeup Table Layout
  4. Hotel and Restaurant information.
  5. Membership Application - to join the Raleigh Bottle Club.
