For you regulars I have reserved your favorite spaces on the map but please do sign up right away if you haven't already.

If you are a Crafter you might also be interested in the Magic Of Santa Christmas Arts and Crafts Show. We recently became the promoters of Reno's longest running craft show! This is the 33rd year! It will be the weekend after Tanners (Nov 30th and Dec. 1st) and will also be in the Events Center. It is a juried show and the items have to be hand-made or at least involve some hand work. Please contact me for more information on the requirements. Click the link to the right to get more information and don't forget to sign up for the email list so we can keep you informed.
Nevada now has a Cottage Foods Law!(SB 206) went into effect on July 1st, 2013. The law allows many different types of food products to be sold, but it is restricted in most other ways. Cottage food operators must make all of their sales in-person, and they cannot sell more than $35,000 per year of goods. Operations must be registered with their health authority.
What this means is that people wanting to sell baked goods at Tanners or have bake sales and such can now do so legally without having to have a commercial kitchen and jump through as many hoops. You still have to register and get a permit in the county where you will be selling and there are some labeling requirements but it doesn't look to bad. All non-potentially hazardous baked goods are allowed.
I only just found out about this new law so check with the health dept. to get the real lowdown info. (If you do find out more please pass it on to me and I'll spread the word)
The most current info and pictures will be there. Please click the Like link so you get notifications when we post updates. It also helps our ratings and to spread the word about the shows.
The TV show "The Old House Antique Showcase" will be filming several episodes again during the weekend. The program will air every Sunday at 7:00 A.M. on the CW Network, channel 6 on Charter and ATT and channel 46 on Dish and Direct TV.

Help Spread The Word!
If you would like to help advertise the show we have created a flier with tear off tabs that you can print out and post on local bulletin boards or at your office. Many grocery stores etc. have places to post local events and every little bit helps get the word out. The more people that come the better everyone's sales will be!
Please post a Craigslist Ad and put the Facebook link and webpage address in it.
It also helps to place ad's with photo's of some of the items you will have for sale at the show. The more key words we get out there the more people will see the ads.
We are open to any ideas that you have to let more collectors know about the show and get attendance up. On that note please click the Forward to a Friend link above and let anyone you think might be interested know about us.
Places to Stay:
A few people have asked if there are places to stay close to the events center. The Events Center has RV spaces available (see the bottom of the show application page) and there are several motels close by and the casinos are close too. Kayak.com lists some close by ones. You can narrow the search in the location box.:

Some of Reno's Early History
In 1859, C. W. Fuller built a bridge across the Truckee River, but annual flooding repeatedly swept it away. Myron Lake purchased Fuller's crossing in 1860, and after building a sturdier toll bridge, he opened an inn on the south side of the river. The spot became known as Lakes Crossing. When the Central Pacific Railroad was pushing east in the late 1860s, Lake deeded 40 acres to the railroad to encourage construction of a depot there. He also sold the railroad 160 acres for a townsite, which was officially established May 13, 1868. The town of Reno quickly became an important freight and passenger center, and grew rapidly.
