My first mistake for this weekend was having high expectations. I mistakenly thought I was going to have a great weekend but instead, I laid an egg.
This was my third Bridgeview show and the previous two were good, so I thought this one would be good as well. No such luck. I'll be back though. You can't get rid of me that easily!
Now Orland, is almost always good and I have been setting up there for years. No such luck this weekend. You know I'll be back.
Sales were bad at both shows and buys were non-existent.
On the plus side, I got to hang out with my pals Will and Joe all weekend. Love those guys! Where was everybody else?
I know both the Bridgeview show and Orland show will bounce back. The promoters are superstars. We all have duds sometimes. I just have to forget about last weekend. I won't doink that field goal attempt next time.
Next up is the three-day Sports Spectacular, formerly known as the Sun-Times show. I am a little nervous heading into this show. I always like to have some momentum going into a big show. I will be there, regardless. I am bringing out display cases. I am working on pricing a bunch of new stuff for those cases. If you want to see any binders this weekend, let me know ahead of time.
Come see me in Rosemont, Illinois, this coming weekend and let me know where you were the past weekend!
Next Oak Creek show is April 1. Dealers tables are sold out!
