Thanks for the comments. Sales are slow, but picking up. Some of the prices I have seen for knives with different vendors are at least full MSRP. I try to keep close to what others are doing for prices however, I assume the tax liability (many make you pay the tax), I also discount 20% when known forum members make purchases from me. They just have to inform me of their moniker to get that. Just make sure to remind me of this so I don't err and charge reg. price, this is like having a coupon in hand.
I started fresh and new at last years April show so you can tell I am pretty new at it. My on hand merchandise is not always top shelf (due to limited start up funds & reinvestment of funds earned at the shows), but I do indeed take orders and will make sure they are delivered. This is why I bring my catalogs to the shows. I did get several orders during this show that I will be ordering for people asap-tomorrow.
I am looking forward to when I can have SOG, Kershaw, CRKT and other top name brands available regularly. Till then I order them for my customers.
Thanks again Dave, for your interest & support.
I also want to say thanks to Kynarb and his wife, Clark Aposhian and others who stopped by & introduced themselves. It is always a pleasure to speak with, and meet, others from the forum.
