« Part 14: Spearfish Home Show wrap up Part 15 of The Shows series Part 16: plugging away »

I am back to the Central States Fair here. The last couple years it has been my biggest sales event. Major anticipation going into this year. The area in general seems to be doing better economically. The weather is about as perfect as we could ever hope for. Expecting great crowds. I have quite a few new items and of course I will be building all of the time I am here. The grounds opened a few hours ago and I have been pleasantly surprised by the traffic through the booth.

No big traumatic events leading into this week. I am getting better setting up and so far I don’t think I forgot anything.

More to come.

hope you sell a bunch! Keep your security up? I’m remembering that you got ripped off at one of these. All the best. :)
