Wow! What a great experience!!! Though we’re new at participating in arts festivals, this was our first year, and just our 3rd time out there, this was GREAT!!!
Not only was the festival beautifully organized, (thanks to Pax Bobrow and her staff) making it easier for us to set up and breakdown, but the turnout on all 3 days was fantastic! We met some incredible people who seemed to love our knives! Mr. & Mrs. Keith Jones - he being a custom suit maker, look him up at kjonesmtm.com (What a pleasure to chat with you both); Rachael, who made us feel so welcome in the area; The group from EastWind Castle LLC!; the 9 year old lad who wanted to “negotiate” the price of a knife, (how could I not)!!!; and then there was young Molly, who stole my heart, and visited us 3 or 4 separate times! Please contact us, as we need to negotiate, we so want you to have one of our knives, the one you really wanted; So many more wonderful and interesting people came through to help make our weekend truly a success on so very many levels!
I kept track of some of the comments that were being bantered about:
"Great job!” - "Beautiful work, amazing knives!” - “Nice, never seen knives like that” - 'Gorgeous stuff!” - “This says, that’s my cheese, don’t mess with my cheese”!! (with regard to the small knives) - “Crazy stuff, pretty wild” - “Cool designs” - “What a talent”! - “Awesome” - “Truly works of art!” - “Very cool, great tools” - “Fantastic” - “That is seriously beautiful” - “Wow, I’ve never seen anything like this"
Thank you all, you know who you are.
