I should have put a smily face after my comments.  Wink My daughter does shows for her monogramming bussiness and I might just put a few items in her booth when she's not looking.

Actually George, that is a good strategy. Every booth needs some help, if nothing else, just for potty/coffee recycling station and food breaks. You can also see what people are interested in and get feed back. I also always traded for Christmas gifts. You can also get leads on wood...

One day shows outside are a lot of work. Drive early in the morning, set up the tent and set up the products, sit all day and take it all down and drive home. The next day you have to unpack it all. I am obligated for a one day show fifty mile drive but this will be the last year.
Shows need to be at least 20,000 attendance.

Just finished the Oregon Country Fair, my most fun and profitable show ever. The last few years, plates and platters have outsold the shallow and deeper/more standard bowl shapes. This year, the other way around... That's Show Business....
