« 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.

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.
