Default Outdoor Show-5/1/10

Like others have posted, we had an outdoor show yesterday morning. We were located downtown on the campus of a Fortune 500 company. At least 50,000 visitors were within a few blocks of us for the season's first farmers market and Berkshire Hathaway's shareholder meeting. And since the weather was perfect the turnout was excellent!

Our table was in the middle of a circle of very large tents that the company erected for vendors without their own tents. So virtually all the event traffic passed by us. We definitely exceeded our goals and were pleased with the inventory planning.

Some photos are attached below.

Thanks all! Yes, we're in Omaha, NE. This show was actually our first. It sort of popped up on short notice, and we were using it as a test run for a three day festival in June.

The only problem we encountered was mud! We had some bad storms the previous nights. So the grass was very wet. And since all the traffic passed by us, the soggy grass right in front of our table turned into large patches of mud. Visitors had to leap and tip toe to look at our products. And a strong, sudden gust of wind blew some bow holders into the mud.

Here are some more photos of the event.

Congrats on a good show! When I do outdoor shows I put a few cardboard boxes in my trunk all folded up so if we end up in a muddy space I can fold out the boxes and make a path for people to walk.

Thats a great idea. Thanks for the tip! We're doing another outdoor show in June, and it seems to rain during this event every year.
