Trade Show's 2019

I need to apologize. I haven't been posting much this year. Not that I haven't been busy making anything in leather, quite the opposite. I started in January making up items for the two trade show's I would be attending this spring. The Kalamazoo Trade show here in Michigan and the Fort Frederick Market Fair in Maryland.
We made it to both of them and did well and we enjoyed see our friends and meeting new ones.
This years Market Fair was there 25th Anniversary. There was 135 vendors and several period campers.
It was a busy four days in spite of the off and on rain.
There is plenty of things to see and do while there.
