« Part 23: The Sports show - Wrap up Part 24 of The Shows series Part 25: Central States Fair start of day 5 »

Yes I am starting the blog a day late. I had a furniture delivery yesterday morning. Then rush home to load for the Central States Fair. 2 quick trips to get the basics here and setup last night. Last night was decent. My best sales are on concert and rodeo nights. Last night was motocross and tonight is the demolition derby. For whatever reason, those groups don’t spend money. First half of the booth is setup.

The pictures are done by my 85 year old mother

My friend Tyler makes the antler chandelier and picture frames

Our weather is supposed to be nearly perfect for the fai. 80s with little chance of rain.

Thanks for reading

Is there a friendly rivalry, as to who outsells who???

Good luck to both of you, sales wise!!!

Great looking booth, Monte! I bet your mom can run circles around my 28 year old son! Lotta talent displayed in the booth! Among the ‘smalls’ I especially like the mirror. Hope you do well. Can’t imagine why you wouldn’t. Thanks for sharing.

Good looking booth, Monte. Your mom is as good with a brush as she is at guarding the house.
Here’s to a great fair.

Wow, I’m really impressed. Of course, I love the antler light that’s hanging. It’s my favorite, but that’s just becuase I love just about anything to do with hunting. You put up a great display. It’s very professional looking. The chests are amazing.

Ditto on the pleasing display and on the talented Pittman family. Do they have the Jaegermeister girls on stilts at this show too?
