Hey Cpt. Hammer. The show was out in Lebanon TN. After factoring in fuel, cost of materials and expences, I came out about even. We decided to do the show last minute (about 3 wks ago) so I had to get a lot of things done to get ready. I think we will continue to try the shows as long as we can at least make our expences. If anything, it will give us more exposue and lead to custom orders, I had orders for 2 boxes and 6 trivets before I left.

I think that the economy is having an impact. consumer confidences is low so people aren’t spending any money right now. I think things will actually start to turn around after the election.

I’m looking into shows in our area but most of those are jurried to enter and a bit more expensive so the risk is higher. If you know of any, let me know and perhaps we can team up for the show.
