Below are some pictures from the latest show I did.I only had a chance to take pictures in one building(the one I was in) there was a total of three buildings.The show was pretty decent the crowd was a little light.They had all the polygamist stuff that has been on the news going on there.There was like 800 lawyers in town plus media so people that normally travell to the show could not get motel rooms.I couldn’t get one myself I had to sleep in my van.But anyway it was still OK ,sold some carved bowls and took an order for some chairs.

The bottom four pictures are my booth

Quite a show! I see lots of different products. You have a lot invested in time and money.

Beautiful work, hope you did well to cover cost and then some. I think if you sold a couple pieces you would have done that. Great work. mike
