FWCSS Spring Show and Sale May 11-13, 2012

Post by John C »

I know most of you aren't in the area, but if someone is here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, come check out the Fort Worth Cactus and Succulent Society's annual Mother's Day weekend show and sale!

It is at Ridgmar Mall in Fort Worth, and will be in the Macy's courtyard. (Open during all mall hours)

I'll be there all weekend. Come check it out, we would love to see you there!

What a show! Looks like the plants chosen as the People's Choices were "slam dunk" decisions, they are amazing plants. Your table is far from laughable, especially if you broke even. Seems like a good deal to me!

Looks like a nice show! I see nothing wrong with your table. Did you make any sales? That's the real way to judge if your booth was a success! I'm thinking of doing something like that next year if I get enough offshoots and divisions of my plants.

Edit: I missed the "breaking even" part obviously. I agree with Daiv below, you came out ahead! Propagate some of the plants you bought and they'll generate money for you next year!

That translates to me as coming out ahead!

Your right, I did come out ahead. I got rid of plants I didn't need, and bought nice ones in return. :lol: 8)
