the apple fest show is behind me , and frankenmuth woodcarving show coming up next wee

hi folks, i had a great time at the apple fest , it was a last min decision to go.  the thought of setting up the big white tent , was a bit overwhelming to me with trying to get some work done here around my home and farm,,, but i went,, it was a very cold morning, i was out the door by 5am and setup by 630 and they open at 7am,,  the temps was 32 till about 10am this morning, the car was close enough to hop in the car to warm up a bit, and my normal big display was very small,,  i did not take all the videos with me, as you do shows , every show is different, and you can adjust what you bring along, , in the photo the other table that you do not see are some of the videos and carvings just let folks see what i do on youtube,,   there is a lot of interest in carving in general,, which always makes it worth to me to set up,, sold a lot of carvings, the christmas pickles were a hit again this year , about sold out of them lol   ,  so please if you get a chance to do a show do so,, yes its alot of work , some things you learn along the way , what to bring and what sells, at which shows,, the only thing i didnt think of was the smaller tent was 6x6 with no sides,  it was to short, when i stood to chat with people well could not see them,, lol so i sat down to carve and that brings folks around to see what your doing, esp kids,,  seem to enjoy it and asked many questions,  it was a good day, also i was able to meet a couple that followed me on youtube for some time, they came a long distance to a wedding and came up in this area for a few days, and came to see me at the apple fest, what a treat, to meet folks that i know only by name on facebook ,or by emails,, so overall the day was great,
now i am planning on the frankenmuth show in mich on oct 20th , i done this show before, and look forward to going, it will again not be the set up like i would have here in lancaster due to the lack of room in the car,, but i plan to have a great time all the same and hopefully meet some of you there ,, take care and keep carving
