Yep, shows have been a little thin for me lately also. Fortunately, there are so many shows in and around Atlanta that I don’t have overnight travel expenses and have shown a profit, even as small as it may be. This weekend is my last outdoor show for the year and then I move to indoor shows. I have a show scheduled every other weekend through the middle of December and I hope the Christmas shopping binge will finally hit as we get closer to Christmas.

I saw on the news tonight about how China factories are shutting down and thousands are out of work because American companies are not placing orders for toys and appliance parts. Before it’s all over, we woodworkers may be the only source for gifts in town this year….one can only hope.
