How can i put this. 10 years ago there were maybe 500 dealers, 5 years ago maybe 300 dealers, last year maybe 150 dealers and this year almost dead with maybe 100 dealers left if you're lucky, but last week it was more like 50 dealers and all the regulars are leaving. I have spoke to some of the remaining dealers and many of them blame the quicker decline on the owners new boyfriend who they say ruined what is left of the market and nobody likes him, they claim he is miserable. Shupp's use to be one of our favorite places to take a stroll and fine a nice treasure. not anymore. The dealers have disappeared and the market is 90% empty and the ones that are left are selling lower quality junk for the most part and things that nobody wants. What use to take at least an hour to walk around now takes 15 mins. It's really no longer worth the effort. I would suspect this place will be history in less than 5 years. It's too bad because it use to be so nice.
Even during their bottle show a few years ago there would be over 100 bottle dealers this years there was one, we actually only saw one bottle dealer. Pottery theme weekend NOBODY!
