Thank You, New York
Wow, I can't remember a knife show we enjoyed so much. Each has it's moments but this whole show was just about the best. We can't thank everyone enough who came by to visit with us. We had a great show - all the knives and beads sold, the enthusiasm for the work was outstanding, visited with old friends, and new friends were made. What could be better you ask? Well, maybe....

Come to mama[/caption] Seriously, when the people coming to a show are so energized and knowledgeable about knives it is refreshing and such a positive experience that one can't help but be appreciative. So many nice and interesting people came by that it was an honor to attend. You've all heard about the New York and New Jersey attitude but we met only accommodating and truly nice people everywhere we went.

It is also a time to reflect upon the good in our lives; and a fine example of that is the classy move made by Tom Krein this past weekend. Hat's off to you, Tom for standing up for a friend. New York , we look forward to visiting next year. Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate.
