Welcome George; I looked up Smithfield on Goggle Maps. My sister lives in Kenbridge down in the sothwest corner of VA. I was stationed in Norfolk for about 2+ years in the Navy.

Is Smithfield where the Hams are made? I looked at the Smithfield Ham site, but they are in Portsmouth??

I'd like to see some of your wands.

Welcome from Illinois,
Good luck on your craft shows, I must say I try them and unless you like to make 3.00$ to 5.00 pens you will feel like your aren't welcome there. In my opinion craft show in the great state of Illinois sucks!!! a waste of money, look for Juror art galleries.The people are more likely to spend 40.00-$ 150.00 @ pen.Last week I did one cost me $75.00 rent one day and sold a BIG "0" ALL DAY!!! ALL i HEARD WAS THOSE ARE BEAUTIFUL PENS I STARTED TO THINK DAMM MAYBE i SHOULD DONATE THE PENS TO MY LOCAL MUSEUM.... BEST OF LUCK !!! lOUIE

Default feeling loved

I feel so loved now.

I made a couple pens for my brother and he took them to work. It snowballed from there. I think I have 22 pens to make before Christmas...thus the no more orders subject header. I'll try to be more careful with my titles from now on.

Smithfield is the ham capital of the world yet you can't seem to find a ham biscuit here unless you go to hardees.

already learned a lot from this forum and looking forward to meeting a few of you folks.

Welcome from upstate NY. I hope you are not selling all those pens at 'cost of material'.
