    Has anyone ever been to a vintage tradeshow? I am thinking about going to the Manhattan vintage tradeshow in April and I am curious what is there? I need to do some buying for an online vintage boutique, will this be a good place to find merchandise? What kind of vendors do they have? Is it a ton of vendors in a ginormous venue? I am just trying to get an idea to help me make a decision whether to go or not. Any input greatly apprecited, Thanks in advance!!

    I've never heard of a vintage trade show before!
    it sounds mega cool!! you should most definitely buy some
    of their merchandise because of one-of-a-kind pieces.
    have you heard of the rose bowl?? it's mainly the same thing, buying
    vintage merchandize, vendors everywhere, piles and racks of clothes, and
    booths for vintage jewelery. I don't know about the vendors in Manhattan...
    but in Santa Monica it's like in a parking lot. So it can get pretty crowded.
    you just need to know how to bargain with them. :)

    do you know if they have vintage tradeshows in the los angeles area??
    it sounds so interesting!
