Craft Show this weekend pics
« on: September 14, 2008, 05:06:44 PM »
Well it turned out really well. Got my name out to many and sold quite alot, grunt calls and fawn bleats being the homerun hit.
Also had fun with Ardin Cogar and his wife. They are both World Champion lumber jacks from here.






Thanks for looking, Jeff

Congrats on a good show!  Looks like you have a good amount of stuff on your tables.   

Would you do it again?  I have never done a craft show, but have thought about it this winter at Christmas time.

I have done a couple shows and it is a good way to get your name known.I enjoyed setting up my display and talking with folks that I would have never had the chance to otherwise

Looks like you had a very nice setup

Sounds like you had fun Jeff. I didn't see you in the picture of your table though.  ;D  Glad you had a good time and lots of sales.

Nice display and glad to hear you had a good time.  As for that lumberjack work - someone else can do it, cause it won't be me.

Craft shows are GREAT. my wife talked me into setting up at our county fair my 1st year. She said something about there not being anything for men at these things. So I set up ($30) for a booth and sold $800 worth of calls. Not one single sale to a man, it was all women buy Christmas gifts for husbands and sons.  :o

That's what I REALLY like about doing shows. Meeting and chatting with the folks that come by. Sometimes your lucky to pay for your table or booth space, others you do real well. But ALWAYS have a great time with the folks that come by to visit. Alot of ties, folks may not buy at the show bt call later on, just because you spent a few minutes to show them how the call worked or shared a story with them about the "Old Days". Glad you had a good show, I wouold encourage ANYONE to get out and try it.
