Atlantique City shoppers can try for two $500 shopping sprees

CINCINNATI – Attendees at the 2009 Atlantique City, New Jersey’s largest indoor antiques and collectibles show, will have the opportunity to win one of two $500 shopping sprees sponsored by Barbara Gerr Antiques of Galloway, N.J. Atlantique City returns to the Atlantic City Convention Center  for its now annual show on March 28-29, 2009.

Show buyers can enter a daily drawing for a $500 shopping spree in the appraisal/bookstore area of the show floor or right outside the Barbara Gerr Antiques booth, #1000. One winner will be randomly chosen each day to win the shopping spree. You must be present to win and the shopping spree is good for purchases made at the show.

“Barbara Gerr Antiques has been a tremendous partner over the last few years. Their sponsorship of the shopping sprees benefits all exhibitors as well as consumers and adds to the excitement at the show,” said show producer Eric Bradley of F+W Media. “Our buyers really look forward to the drawings.”

The March 2009 Atlantique City Show expects 400+ exhibitors of art, furniture, jewelry and vintage fashion, pottery, porcelain, glass, dolls, toys, silver and more. The show is considered by many dealers to be one of the easiest indoor shows to do because of drive-in set up that takes place over two days. It’s also a haven for collectors and decorators with objects and styles ranging from colonial to contemporary. 

Atlantique City will continue to offer attendees valuable services such as free furniture delivery within a 100-mile radius, free appraisals, drawings for shopping sprees and deep discounts on the latest antiques and collectibles books. A comprehensive multi-media marketing campaign includes advertising in daily newspapers, television, community-themed magazines and weekly papers.
