We are all geared up & ready for our 2011 Christmas Show! (Nov. 11-19th ). Pre-sale on the 10th from 4-8 PM.

Are you starting to think about the Holidays yet?.....Well here at Blackberry Junction, we certainly are!

We have a lot of great things lined up to put a big smile on all of your faces for the Holidays. Lots of trees, lots of white lights & certainly lots of great vendors who will bringing the bling!

This years show will run from Nov. 11th thru 19th from 10-6 everyday. We will also be having our pre-sale evening on Thursday evening from 4-8 P.M. Tickets will be sold at the door on this evening & will be $15.00. We will also be having some treats & hors d'oeuvres for your pleasure & you will be automatically entered into our hourly drawing!...Sounds like fun huh?

We had a lot of fun at the Sept. show during our pre-shop night. (Customers liked the fact that it was a bit more relaxed & easier to shop). It was nice not only being in a new larger 1 level showroom, but also to be able to try out a new venue like a pre-sale evening.....& yes of course you may actually make your normal purchases that evening. (The only thing that we ask is if you wish to purchase a large item or a "featured" item you may certainly do so, but that we may PLEASE leave it on display thru opening weekend). That way the show won't look torn up on opening day before it opens to the public.

We would like to once again thank all of you for your support & allowing us to make the necessary changes that we needed for the show to grow. With out all of you guys, we could not begin to have a show, so THANK-YOU so very much!

Hope to see you soon!

Great things planned for our big autumn show!

Lots of activity going on in the old Borden warehouse where our show will be taking place. Quite a few vendors have already started construction on their eye-popping displays & moving in some of their beautiful items. It's getting pretty exciting right about now!
Not only are the vendors getting excited, but some of the local businesses have been coming around to check out all of the activity. Some of them are going to be having their own sales & events around our show dates so the customers will have plenty of things to look at after they leave Blackberry Junction. Shops such as Albany's first stop antique mall who are planning on running a store wide sale that will be open daily from 10-6 Sept. 16th thru 24th. They are located in a large 3000 sq. ft. brick building at 131 Montgomery St. N.E. (2 blocks west of Blackberry Junction), & their annex store at 321 1st. St. inside Montgomery Park.......

As you can see, we have already started preparation for our wonderful Blackberry Junction Autumn show. Lots of new & exciting things this time, including a new location!!!!!!
We have enjoyed our time at the historic Fairmount grange, but we have simply grown out of it. (Which is a good problem to have). I know both the vendors & the loyal customers have been asking us to find a new larger location that has only one level to make shopping and set-up a bit easier.
So now I am happy to announce to all of you that our new warehouse facility on Water street in Albany, will meet all of our needs & will open a more doors for us to keep growing & just keep getting better!
We are currently working on plans to sell tickets at the door for $20.00 to have a pre-sale evening from 5:00-8:00 PM the evening before the show opens. This invitation is for our loyal customers who have been with us & helped to support us all of this time. It will give them a chance to have a sneak peek of our fall show & a chance to shop early enjoy wine, chocolate & other goodies! (We will also have a one drawing per hour during this evening).
That's all of the surprises for now, I'll keep you posted as more fun things unfold!
