« Part 13: Spearfish Home Show day 2of2 Part 14 of The Shows series Part 15: It's been a year »

Well there’s 2 days of my life I can never get back. Vendors that have been there before said it was the slowest they had ever seen it. I guess I should be relieved that they didn’t consider it a big weekend. You never can predict how a show will go. I have had a few good ones in a row. So I probably was due a dud. I have plenty of work so I wasn’t desperate for more orders. But it’s preferred that the booth pays for itself. Live and learn.

Sorry to hear Monte. Hope at least those folks you talked to yesterday get back to you to cover the show costs. We heard from a number a few vendors the same thing at our show. We didn’t do bad though, but hopefully will do much better next year if we return.

Too bad…its definitely a numbers game. I hope you didn’t have to travel to far or spend hotel exxpenses also.
The next show will be much better…

Chalk it up and move to the next one! It’s all about showing your wares and meeting people. In the long run, all the work and effort will pay off.
