I am sure there will be plenty of inspiration for sure . It was a great show last year , although I did get there a little late. If the weather is good it will be packed !!. Make sure you keep your ticket stub , there will be numerous drawings for custom blades and, I think a new grinder .

Yes sir . You never can tell, might get a last minute cancellation ??? I will bring a medium suitcase full of stuff to sell . I was going to bring a folding picnic table just in case they had room but, the city occupancy rules only lets them have so many tables .. See you there.

Jumping in late on this thread..., yea, it's on, and yea, tables were sold out six months ago. I joined the Gateway club back in Nov, and this show is a pretty big deal for them, plan for it all year, etc. Being local and all, I'd go, but turns out that weekend I have to be in San Diego on a business trip,and can't get out of it (believe me I've tried). Anyway, I think it should be a good show, given all the planning and such.

Well Bubba didnt do to bad. Id say i broke about even with expences. Thats a nice little show. There was alot of things going on in the city competing for peoples time. So i can say for my first show it was a good learning experiance talking with fellow knifemakers about the good old days. Here is a pic of Bubba at his table.

I had a load of personal problems arise , therefore I missed the show . So how about the highlights ? Any smokin deals ?
Just wondering .
There were a few you had to be fast though . Sold a bunch of my small sword steel blades . and sold 3 swords , when I finish them LOL. We had a pretty good time all in all. Had a lot of competition from huge veterans Parade . 250,000 attended it . Free food and beer at show.
made some good connections for all kinds of stuff. Lots of local makers ...... not too bad with the free grits and suds .
