Happy  150th Birthday Nevada!
All year long I'll be including some items of historical interest

Time is going so fast! It's almost time for the next Tanners Marketplace show.  February 15th and 16th will be here before we know it.
We had a conflict with the May date so we are trying to figure out a new weekend in May that doesn't conflict with other shows and is available for the venue.  I'll post on Facebook and the website as soon as we figure it out.


February 15th, 16th

May ? to be determined 

July 26th, 27th

September 13th, 14th

November 22nd, 23rd

Thief Heads Up. There was a brazen robbery on January 8th at the Somewhere In Time antique mall. 2 guys distracted the cashier by pretending to buy some items then while the cashier was ringing things up one casually wandered over and snatched a small jewelry case and walked out. Upon watching the video the same 2 were in the store earlier and tried unsuccessfully to break into a display case. Please contact me or the police if you recognize either of them and share this with your friends. We do have video. Thank you!
On a Happier note the show is filling up quickly and promises to be a really good one.
We have a lot of vendors signed up with a very diversified inventory. Sylvia will be here with her Sterling Silver, Alex and John will be back with their wonderful estate jewelry, Glenn from the Serendipity shows is coming if weather allows, Carol and Mike and Rosi and Rose Anne and.. wow there are just too many to list, you can see them all listed on the website at http://www.tannersreno.com/dealerspaces.htm
There are also quite a few Crafty Vendors signed up that make everything from potato baking pouches to custom jewelry so there will be something for Everyone.
We do still have some spaces available if you want to get in on the fun!

If anyone has time and knowledge to help get the word out by contacting newspapers and such that publish event listings I would appreciate the help. Please drop me an email or call.

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:
   A friend of mine stays at the SandsRegency Hotel Casino when he visits. They usually have some good deals going. I did a quick check and found their deals page:  
Once he visited the first time they keep sending him free nights tickets.    
   Motel 6 is about a block away:  
   Days Inn is just a little further:
   Americas Best Travel Inn is right at the freeway exit too:
There is a 24 hour Denny's and a Carrows restaurant very close. (walking dist. from motels, right at the freeway exit)
Let's make this a fun forum to keep interest and excitement up for the shows!

Buy Local
In these uncertain economic times it just makes sense to support our friends and neighbors!
With that in mind there is a growing trend to try and buy from local companies and small business. Each of us that does the show is a small business trying to make ends meet, it just makes sense to support each other.
There is a local website that encourages and supports small businesses. It's called 
"Welcome to Buy Local Reno-Sparks and the Green Business Chamber.                                                      *We are a new model of a chamber of commerce supporting only Locally Owned Independent  Businesses and Green Businesses, headquartered in Nevada.
*We offer a FREE directory listing to ALL Nevada Based-Locally Owned Businesses.
*We ask consumers to choose Nevada Based-Locally Owned first for purchasing decisions, and we link to those businesses with this online directory.
*We have the latest internet marketing programs committed to driving sales to Nevada Based-                   Locally Owned Businesses ..helping to increase retention and to help create more local jobs.          
*We are asking all Locally Owned businesses to UNITE, and support the Buy Nevada First campaign. "

I suggest everyone check it out and perhaps register your small business.
If you aren't local to the Reno area you can see if there is something similar where you live.
The V&T Railroad
a little history
[photo]Photo of Engine No. 22, The Inyo Photo courtesy of Nevada State Railroad Museum
In 1870, Nevada's first short-line railroad, the Virginia and Truckee Railroad (V&T), was completed between Carson City and Virginia City. Two years later, the track was extended to Reno to connect with the transcontinental Central Pacific Railroad. The V&T was the brain child of William Sharon, William Ralston and D.O. Mills of the Bank of California in San Francisco. They feared that Adolf Sutro's plan to drain the Comstock mines of water through an ingenious tunnel would adversely affect the bank-held monopoly of mills along the Carson River. William Sharon petitioned the Nevada legislature and received funds to build the railroad. This calculated move stalled the tunnel's completion for many years. The line served to haul ore from Virginia City to the mills in Carson City, lumber from the Sierra Nevada, and passengers traveling between Virginia City, Carson City, Reno and Minden (south of Carson City). The V&T operated from 1869 until 1950. 
About 50 pieces of the railroad remain today, more than half of which are housed at the Nevada State Railroad Museum, including two locomotives listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Dayton and Inyo. Both locomotives saw intermittent service between the 1870s and 1930s. No. 18, the Dayton, was built in 1873, and is the sole survivor of the 62 locomotives built at the Central Pacific Railroad shops in Sacramento, California. The Dayton was used for passenger and snow service. Locomotive No. 22, the Inyo, was built in 1875 by Baldwin Locomotives and used for passenger and freight service. Both the Dayton and Inyo were sold to Paramount Pictures Corp. in 1937. In 1939, the Dayton was used for a publicity run to New York promoting a Cecil B. DeMille film. Both locomotives were part of the National Park Service's celebration of the centennial of the transcontinental railroad in 1969, and displayed at the Golden Spike National Historic Site in Promontory Point, Utah, before they were brought to the museum.

Other railroad cars of interest at the museum include Locomotive No. 27 (unnamed), the last one purchased by V&T in 1913 and retired in 1948; the completely restored Caboose-coach No. 9; the V&T Express Mail No. 21, originally built in the railroad's own shops in 1906, and later used by Paramount Pictures in their movies through the 1970s; Express Mail No. 21, awaiting restoration; and Locomotive No. 25 (also unnamed), converted to an oil-burning boiler in 1907, that served as a back-up to the popular "Reno" No. 11. Locomotive No. 25 runs during special "steam-up" events throughout the year at the museum. Other V&T railroad cars and locomotives are on display at the California State Railroad Museum, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and Old Tucson Studios.

Virginia and Truckee RR. Engine No. 18, the Dayton, is located at the Comstock History Center at 20 North E. Street, Virginia City, NV 89440, which is open to the public from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm Thursdays and Sundays. Virginia and Truckee RR. Engine No. 22, the Inyo, is located at the Nevada State Railroad Museum, on Hwy. 395 (Carson St.) at Fairview Ave. in Carson City. The museum is open to the public 8:30am to 4:30pm daily; there is a fee for adult admission. For further information or for special events check the museum's website or call 775-687-6953 
 From the National Park service website at:
Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker- function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen. 
MAN: "Hello" 
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?" 
MAN: "Yes." 
WOMAN: "I'm at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?" 
MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much." 
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2014 models. I saw one I really liked." 
MAN: "How much?" 
WOMAN: "$65,000." 
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options." 
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing. The house we wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $950,000." 
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer, but just offer $900,000." 
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you!" 
MAN: "Bye, I love you, too." 
The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are looking at him in astonishment.

Then he smiles and asks: "Anyone know whose phone this is?"
