The show wasn’t to bad since the economy isn’t the greatest these days. While the show was going on. The lady next to me kept looking at the rolling pins. Later in the day she asked me if I would be interested in another show. I said sure. She told me it is tomorrow and where it was. I asked her how much to get into it. She said $25.00. I thought some more through out the day. Then I told her since you keep looking at the rolling pins. I would give her the one that she kept looking at inreturn for the entry to the show, she said ok. I went to that show it was the first one they have had there. It wasn’t that great but it should be better next year. So that was 2 shows in 2 days and I have another one this friday here where I live. Any way here is a couple of picks of the booth. Not that great they had a lot of booths, and I didn’t have to much room to get better pictures.

Tim, what pieces that you had at the show were selling? The one show I went to, no one was buying CB’s but they were buying pen’s and homemade breads.

Yeah, Tim, it would be helpful to many of us to know what sold and for how much. That sort of information is so hard to find- but would really be interesting to us. We can see the quality of your work and that would help many to be able to set their prices accordingly. Thanks.

Your merchandise looks great and persistence should pay off eventually. I hope that all of your woodworking ventures are profitable for you.
