Turned for the Show

Here are the turned items I am packing up for the show this weekend. I still have bandsaw boxes, flat work and artwork to get ready. Thought I would grab a pic before I boxed it up.

Nice collection. Should be something for most people.

Fingers crossed you get buyers and not just picker-uppers.

I guarantee you I'd have bought a thing or two out of that selection. Figuring out crowd buying behavior is enough to drive a person crazy. Just don't take it personally. The next show might be a home run.

That's the problem beautiful days people are home doing the honey do list . I had a similar show at the Eagle River, WI gun show this past week end. I make most of my sales on gun and fishing rod racks. It's crazy people always want what you don't have. Oh well I just expand my offering at the next show. Shows sure are a cheap shoot.

After over 20 years of doing shows I have seen it all. It is just business. If you want anything out of that pic I have most of it left just PM me and we can talk.

Looking at another show middle of June and have one booked for July. Really looking hard at a big show nearby last weekend of Sept.

I buy all of my turkey call needs from Joe as well but you might want to try here for bands and duck and goose call inserts if you do not make your own http://www.echocalls.com/Bands.html this site is very reasonable. For other call parts click on Accessories, than click on call parts under the pic of the bands.
