It was a great show. There was a crazy amount of people, from beginning to end. I never got a chance to actually walk the show.

There was seemed to be quite a bit of calligraphy interest as well. Unfortunately, the past year I have been focusing on my new fountain pen model so I only had a couple of pen holders and dinky dip trays available. This winter I plan to make some holders out of my custom mixed materials.

It WAS crazy! I am sorry we didn't connect Darrin. Our table (Toronto's calligraphy guild) was also non-stop busy. Had an absolute blast talking with people. My 'shift' ended at noon and had a chance to do the lap. Geez, once was enough. I tired waiting just to see the front of a table or two, let alone talk to someone or see them all. No time to browse, I would feel guilty holding up the line of others also wanting to see what the table had to offer.
Happy to read through here that all those people translated to a great day for you @darrin1200
