Making A List; Checking It Twice.
Here we are- one week and counting until the start of the ANA show. I have been giving lots of thought to what I want to accomplish next week.
Here is my planning process, so far:
-Checked the show calendar to see what days I want to attend.
-Created a show Want List.
-Created a show For Sale List.
-Created a list of Show and Tell Items.
-Cut back all lists to a manageable size!
Daily checking of Lot-3221 in the Heritage Signature Sale: An 1895-O Barber Dime which I am selling from my collection.
-Check table numbers for Barber Collectors and Seated Liberty Clubs.
-Review the Show list of dealers and table numbers to create a list of those that I want to visit.
-Do a quick check of dealer web inventories; then call them with items I want to see at the show.
-Go to Safe Deposit to remove items I want to take to Philly. In my excitement, I showed up at the bank without the box keys- EMBARRASSING! Today, I made my second trip. Thankfully, it was not the same teller.
Over the next few days, I will cut this selection down to a size that I am willing to carry around for a few hours!
At the last minute, I will get some cash, take out my list and check it twice! Hopefully all works according to plan, and I get over my BIG show phobia!
Happy hunting to all attending, and may you dealers have a great show as well!
