« Part 6: Beginning Day 7 Part 7 of The Shows series Part 8: Big day »

Is the anticipation from hoping there are big crowds or because it’s almost over? Although we haven’t had banner crowds, I am perfectly satisfied with how my week has gone. I will leave with a comfortable profit and will have learned even more about how to do this. Had to rearrange this morning due to shelf units leaving booth. A guy that does reclaimed lumber work shows with in the summer. He brought in stuff to fill the void. I haven’t talked him into joining LJ’s yet, but I will.

Have a great day to all!

I’m glad you’ve had a good show, Monte. You seem to be a hard worker and very productive.

The rodeo is still Sunday, but I found out yesterday that vendor areas are done Saturday night. Fine with me. Back in the shop on Sunday.

Sounds like you had a good show. Hope the snow has cleared off enough for you to have a safe trip back home. Doesn’t sound like you have much to haul home and that’s the whole point!
