Preparing and hitting the road for a show is always an effort to say the least. So it is always a good feeling when things go smoothly. I was pleased with the two kiln loads of work unloaded just hours before leaving. The three hour haul without incident brings the first sigh of relief. From the minute I arrived in Palo Alto it was non stop getting set up before dark and ready for a Saturday that turned out to be my best one day sales in recent years. It was a good show overall. Meeting and making new customers, getting to see some great work by other members, and better than average sales to boot! Then there is the after show party Saturday night with plenty of food and drink to cap off the day. What an enjoyable day. Sunday was a bit slower but the show ended being my best in the five years doing it. Thanks to everyone in the ACGA , and MLA for all the hard work everyone does to make this show possible. There is no other like it.
