Larry, I have always been in the original show, by the fountain, it is still the best show of all of them, I would stay away from fourth street, fifth is the next best choice. sJ is a low end sales show, for me it is hard to make $3500 anymore, I am about ready to drop it after 25 years. Hope this helps a little.
