Meeting all the other exhibitors and of course the customers!

Best show ever and why

My best show ever was.......well there's 2! The first was the Fargo Street Fair in Fargo, ND in July of 2008. I had the best sales overall to date! The other was the Little Falls Street Fair in Littles Falls, MN in September of 2008. It's a 2 day show, but the first day I had the BEST 1 day sales ever!!

Worst show ever and why

The worst show I ever did was in Shakopee, MN at Canterburry (sp?) Park. The person coordinating the event was extremely rude. Here's how it went: the gas pump on my truck went out not even 2 miles from the event and so it made me late! Then when I got there (by way of the tow truck), my booth had been moved over 5 feet (they said it had been marked wrong the night before), so my booth was a disaster. When I found out I was going to be late, I called the event coordinator just like the information packet told me to, well he proceeded to tell me what kind of an artist are you if you don't have AAA. I don't travel all over the country so I don't need AAA!!! So because I was late, I missed the meeting in the morning before the show, well that same guy I talked to proceeded to tell all the other vendors about my call to him and make jokes about it and everything! Basically trying to completely embarass me! Well the show was 4 or 5 days (I can't remember!), it took him til the last day to apologize!!! And even then it was half-hearted, it was awful!!! I would never recomment the Huffman shows!!! EVER!!!!!
