Default Need info on a pen maker in So. AR

Is anyone familiar with Karr Custom Pens?
I was invited to a show in south Arkansas. He is listed as a vendor.
I don't want to tread on any other pen maker at a show. Is he active at shows, etc. Any info would be helpful. Did not find him on IAP.

I don't know him but I don't think you should be worrying stepping on another pen makers toes. Shoot, if we all did that we would only do one show a year if that. A show is a show is a show. Haha just look at all the jewelry makers at the shows and we do need less of them.
This is just what I think.
He may be selling custom pig pens so you may not have to worry after all.

A google search found this "Karr Custom Pens (pens & keychains from wood and antlers)".

If you focus in wood and antler you'll have direct competition. This isn't an issue but could unnerve him. If you focus on acrylics and other blanks then all the better.
