Robert, this makes me homesick. I hope that you have a great show and that they can make an ongoing success out of that show.

Probably not worth posting.

Show was held at the Holiday Inn West in Kalamazoo (close to US 131 and Stadium Drive). A little off the beaten path, but not bad. Would really like to see signs from the highway helping to direct guys in, if for anything just to help maybe get some extra foot traffic.

Had maybe 40 tables set up, but in all honesty dont think 15 were used. I only took one table, had thought about 2, but wasnt sure I'd be able to recoup 80 in sales for the two tables, especially for a show I had never been to. My biggest issue here was the promotor IMHO should of said spread out I want to make this look busy...even if on his dime - room was already rented..if for anything to make the room look filled. Even if he had said spread out if you make enough can you throw me an extra bone or two for the table would of been great. Had sales picked up, I'd of gladly thrown some extra $$ his way if it came from that extra table(s).

but do 80 in sales with the majority coming late from the show promoter (that being said I did unload three mid range autos on him (Harvin x2 and Crabtree for 60), which given the numbers was my bacon saver.

Low traffic. Think the advertizement was mostly beckett, and given everything going on in Kzoo this weekend, should of been higher. There is/was atleast 2 car shows, plus a few other festivals ongoing and today the weather was very nice. That being said the 1st weekend of the NFL could be to blame (Lions playing at 1 and show being from 9-4).

Probably my only show for the month since Redford doesn't have a show this month, and Gibraltar and Grand Rapids are both next weekend and I've got commitments for a dog event next Saturday. I expect Grand Rapids to be a really good show and wish I could setup.

It was better for you to go there than to watch the Lions game
