Atlanta Dogwood Art Fest April 7-9, 2017 Review

Posted on April 12, 2017 at 8:26pm 5 Comments

Atlanta Dogwood Review...

Everything just seemed to fall in place. Stormy weather was predicted for our drive there but during the entire trip it seemed that it poured rain everywhere ahead of us and stopped everywhere just before we drove there. Wet cement and puddles but no rain...! We didn't have to turn on the windshield wipers at all. The closure of I-85 was north of where we were driving and we were able to drive…


What is your attitude now that election is over?

Posted on November 16, 2016 at 12:32pm 5 Comments

Now that the election is over no one can use it as an excuse for poor shows. Our first show after the election was this past weekend and it was a good show for us.

I sure hope that we all have excellent shows going forward without any more excuses or reasons to have excuses.

I cannot think of any negativity and I don't want any.. 

Howsa bout you? Are you looking forward to a great upcoming year ?????…

Not all shows have the advantage of this type of layout due to the show location.

Load in starts at 4:30pm and was a fairly easy load in and setup. With the daylight saving time it became dark early and I was glad I had my trusty…

Your boxes are beautiful.  They make you want to reach out and touch the curves, feel the wood.  Interesting woods also.  Good luck to you.
