Help Spread The Word!

If you would like to help advertise the show we have created a flier with tear off tabs that you can print out and post on local bulletin boards or at your office. Many grocery stores etc. have places to post local events and every little bit helps get the word out. The more people that come the better everyone's sales will be!  


Please post a Craigslist Ad and put the Facebook link and webpage address in it.

It also helps to place ad's with photo's of some of the items you will have for sale at the show.  The more key words we get out there the more people will see the ads.

Places to Stay:
A few people have asked if there are places to stay close to the events center.  The Events Center has RV spaces available (see the bottom of the show application page) and  there are several motels close by and the casinos are close too. lists some close by ones. You can narrow the search in the location box:
   A friend of mine stays at the SandsRegency Hotel Casino when he visits. They usually have some good deals going. I did a quick check and found their deals page:  
Once he visited the first time they keep sending him free nights tickets.    
   Motel 6 is about a block away:  
   Days Inn is just a little further:
   Americas Best Travel Inn is right at the freeway exit too:
There is a 24 hour Denny's and a Carrows restaurant very close. (walking dist. from motels, right at the freeway exit)
Let's make this a fun forum to keep interest and excitement up for the shows!

Burning Man has come and gone yet again.
As many of you know Paula and I made our first excursion to the Black Rock Desert this year
for this amazing world class event! 
We met people from all over the globe and everyone was very friendly and nice.  During our week there we never heard an angry word or saw an unhappy person. The art and art-cars are beautiful and extremely creative! At night its just Magical!!! Everything is lit up - from all the camps and disco's to the artwork spread out across the playa. All the art cars cruising and even the bicycles and people walking have lights on them.
Burning Man has a bad rap as being a drug and sex event, nothing could be further from the truth - Sure if you go looking you could find both there but it's true soul is a free spirited love of art creativity and togetherness!
I highly recommend anyone with an open mind and fun filled spirit to go and experience it for yourself. 
I know we will be going back.
Please feel free to talk to us about it, we'd love to share.
