Brian,

I don't know about anyone else, but I printed off a USMF logo and made a badge out of it. I'll be wearing it proudly along with my OVMS badge. I am at tables Q38 - 40 if you want to drop by and say hello. Sgt Dorango (another forum member) will be set up with me.

 

Only 16 days until SoS dealer badge pickup!!!

 

See you there.

I have been packing for the last four days and almost done. I should have my usual block of six tables M1-6 with a lot of "stuff". For the past four years I have experimented with a half price sale on Saturday with two of my six tables. Each year this has been a success and shoppers get a lot of great deals. Those who have been at my spot know what I am referring to. So once again, this year the half price sale will be on first thing Saturday morning. I don't just put a few things on these two eight foot tables, I LOAD THEM UP ! ....... So stop on by.

Good call! I'll print out the same one (just change the name) and affix it to my backpack...always wondered what the best way would be to get this seen!

Dave, I laminated my sign in plastic and just cable tie it to the handles of my tote bag. Simple and durable.
