I want to do more fiber shows, but holy baloney they are expensive! You figure the booth fee, which can be anywhere from $60-$500, plus car rental, gas, food, hotel and I'd have to sell just about everything in this picture below in order to just break even on the travel costs, not to mention the costs of the inventory itself. Luckily, we have a free hotel and car rental for Kentucky otherwise we wouldn't be able to do it. Someone who isn't me ought to organize a large St. Louis fiber festival that brings people in from all over the midwest.
*or an unscrupulous squirrel, such as we had at Strange Folk who used my empty display as a nightclub.
