Harvest Festival

Oy Vey! I am tired and sore. We went to the Harvest Festival location Wednesday evening about 5 p.m. to set up the frame of the booth. We have two side by side spaces for a total of about 6 feet x 20 feet.

We returned today, Thursday, at our assigned set up time of 9 am to 11 am, actually leaving about 1 pm. We got it set up, but there isn't anywhere near all of the possible stuff we could have put in. Here are pics of how it looked like with the frame work set up and our totes and boxes piled awaiting arrangement.

You can see the dirt floor. They do spritz it with water to try to keep the dust down and that helps to some extent. You don't want to leave product in boxes on the floor under the table because the moisture will come up into your boxes and product. They also mark the booth dimensions with a heavy dusting of chalk which can be quite nasty when it gets on some of the product, like the chairs you can see in one of the pics.

By the end of the show, all the feet of the public have really kicked up some nice dust. Since this is mostly used as a training and competition rodeo arena, the fragrance leaves a little (ok, maybe a lot) to be desired. Makes our nicely scented soaps stand out!

Showtime starts at 9 am and ends at 8 pm, so I'd better go get my beauty rest. I'll post more pictures as the show progresses.

Good night and be sure to say your prayers!

Hope to hear an excellent show report Duane, Good luck!
Can't imagine doing a show under those circumstances, but it must sure be interesting to say the least, hehehe
hoping the dust stays settled, ; )
