Boxborough Paper Show
2009-12-01 BOXBOROUOGH, MA – NOVEMBER 20, 2009: David Bornstein of Bornstein Shows and Tina Bruno of Flamingo Eventz, LLC are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached between the two organizations for Flamingo to assume management of the well known Boxborough Paper Shows. A Bornstein family tradition for 30 years, these are acknowledged to be among the finest Paper, Book & Advertising Collectibles shows in the Northeast, and true Dealer & Customer favorites.

Held at the well-known Boxborough Holiday Inn at 242 Adams Place, Boxborough, MA 01719, the shows will now be known as “Paper Town – The Paper, Book & Advertising Collectibles Shows”, and will be held starting January 24, 2010. Prominent exhibitors from across the Northeast will gather to present an outstanding array of fine, rare & unusual old books, maps, postcards, autographs, prints, posters, advertising, old toys, and much, much more. Collectors, dealers, and decorators alike all flock to these wonderful events for the best selection, wonderful finds, and rare treasures found only here.

According to Mr. Bornstein “…We and Flamingo have been friendly competitors as well as personal friends for a number of years. As circumstances changed recently in our business the logical move was to work with folks who know us and respect what we have accomplished. This is the right thing to do for all concerned.”

According to Ms. Bruno, “…Dealers and Customers will notice little visible change with this transfer other than the modified name and our logo. The Bornsteins have put a lot of time and effort into making these shows successful and we plan to run them with an eye to that strong tradition and history. We will be adding our own unique brand of advertising and promotion” she continued, “with just a touch of pink for Flamingo branding”.

Both Ms. Bruno & Mr. Bornstein have stated their desire for a seamless transfer of management, and that they will work as a team at the first show to ensure there are few bumps in that road.
