$55 was the average, I've got pens that go for $100+.  Sales totaled $900 for the day.

Andrew...OK, don't laugh...but here's a picture from my sale.  Keep in mind, this was my very first show and I wasn't sure what to expect so I was very hesitant to sink a lot of money into set-up, etc.  That said...I learned soooooo much from this one show that I'll put on a far more professional/polished display next year.  I must not have done too bad, I sold just over half my inventory at this one show and have sold an additional seven pieces since then and just completed a couple of small items on commission.

John, I haven't done any shows and have only been turning for a couple months. My expectations are quite low haha

Looks like a good setup to me, not cluttered and open so that it feels there's more there to onlookers, good job! Thumbs Up
