Be sure to check out Set-Up Day + Day One, Pre-Set-Up Day, our Display Cases and my Show Booty.
Below are some images I captured of the activities, sights, and people I encountered over the course of the day.
|Normally I would not want to see a three-dealer convergence as that would indicate a slow show. However, in this case it was early in the day on Sunday morning when not much typically happens at a show.|
|The Davidges were a welcome addition to our show and filled our opal hole.|
|This was our only open half-space which was fine with me as it gave us a little wiggle room in case somebody had been unhappy with their assigned half-booth space or had wanted to downsize from a whole-booth space.|
|This year we better dealt with our tree root problem thus making the show safer for our guests.|
|Tom and Lucy Demaris came all the way down from Junction City, CA, in Trinity County to sell in our show.|
|Manny & Dalia Hernandez were in my old spot this year and last. This was the location of my very first ever rock show booth space in September 2006.|
|My Uncle Fred of Naturals From The Earth.|
|The main drag of the show nearing the end of the day today as things quieted down.|
|The Central Coast Gold Prospectors gave a nice showing in their inaugural appearance in this show.|
|As chaotic as this went towards the end it was smooth as silk; I did the phone calls for those winners not in attendance.|
|The Central Coast Gold Prospectors will be most welcome to rejoin us here in a year. Here they are breaking down their booth at the end of the show.|
|This is a melancholy and bittersweet scene: Manny & Dalia loading up for the last time in Paso Robles, CA.|
|Joe is the muscle for Naturals From The Earth and that was never more obvious than on this day at the end.|
|Going, going, gone.... the mirage of a show quickly disintegrates.|
