Valley Fishing Show a promotional success

I'm finally back at my desk after a successful weekend at the Valley Fishing & Outdoor Show. The Exhibitor list, fully booked for many weeks, had a last-minute cancellation. I had no idea that I was next in line for a booth. With only a week to get cards printed/packaged, make a prototype of "FishPlant" for orders, and assemble a booth, there was not a moment to lose. I was still painting and building minutes before the doors opened...
Thanks to my team, the fish-loving public got to feast on a healthy serving of fresh fish, Choleena-style. I featured my T-shirts, greeting cards, "FishPlants" (hand-painted wooden hanging planter which comes with 4 terra-cotta pots and a special swivel hook that looks like a fishing hook) and many original artworks. All fish-themed, of course!

Thanks, L&M, for the loan of the coat rack on wheels. Brilliant idea! I think that I successfully turned it into a gallery wall.

The booth at a glance:

Great job of on-the-fly fish-ing! That's an incredibly fast job. Most elegant fish stand I've ever seen. Hope you got lots of traffic and more than nibbles ;)
