Why load-in makes vintage dealers crazy

Unloading the van after vintage haul

When I fly, I am most stressed at takeoff and landing. Everything in between is easy.  Sort of like Vintage Garage Chicago.  In the vintage market world, the real trouble is usually in the takeoff.  Load-in can change the personality of even passive, constantly sweet vendors can slip.  I admit it. My own personality can take a dramatic turn.  I know the feeling all too well as a dealer, and now as a promoter. What causes this dark phenomenon?  Stress.
