For my first run at this show, I would consider it a success. I have already signed up for next year. Of course there’s a learning curve, but that’s to be expected. She assured me I would get a larger booth next year.
I made a decent profit on the show. Most of that will be spent on new tools and upgrades in the shop :-)
66 of 72 mugs sold, 11 of 12 boxes, a dozen dog food holders and assorted other small stuff. The small items pay for the booth. The big items are still where I make my money. I had some really nice orders. Probably as much as I can handle at this point. I also got a good list of trees to go cut. That’s essential also. Next show is in about a month. Hopefully i can have stock built back up again. It’s home show time. They tend to be expensive to get in to, but payoffs can be huge also. I got (stolen) ideas for a couple new things to make that I think will do well.
I have orders for a custom gun cabinet and a custom bar that I am looking forward to. I will post them when the time comes.
Until March, that’s all for now.
