Hi Randy. If you are alone in your booth, keep your money in your pocket, don’t leave a money box sitting out. There are thieves working everywhere.
I fount that a nice piece of black velvet cloth from a fabric store dressed up my booth a lot. I use their tables and some are pretty shabby, but with that black velvet covering, everything looks more rich!!

Talk to customers. Tell them how things are made and what goes into making them.. Give them an appreciation of your work.
I worked next to a guy who just sat there a let the people look and never talked to them and I did 5 times what he did because I engage them.

Good luck, you have some very impressive band saw boxes- some of the best I’ve seen!!............Jim
