« Part 21: Return to the Shows Part 22 of The Shows series Part 23: The Sports show - Wrap up »

I have never done these shows before, I assure you that I will again. All of my expenses were paid on day one. I would encourage the custom furniture makers to look into these shows locally. The response has been great. I was the only furniture maker there and that is always a good thing.

They are expecting about 10,000 people to pass through today. Fingers crossed for the day.

Well if anybody is due a break in life – it’s you. Happy to hear things are looking up for you Monte. Being the only person selling anything is always good :-).

Wonderful news, Monte.
As CtL said, hope your good fortune continues, and on in through the rebuild, too.
You deserve it.

For a show that I have never done before, it may turn into the most profitable show I have ever done.

I’m glad that the show is going great! I knew your style would appeal to the outdoorsmen (and women). I finally realized what is so cool about your stuff: that beetlekill pine is just tailor made for your style of furnishings.
