Hi,

This is a small show but it is near to me. I'll be there. I'll likely have a table too. This year it is open to the public and NAWCC members from the get go.

Will you have any Gruen items for sale? Very Happy

I'm looking at my schedule this week. I'd love to make it out there.

The show was this weekend; Friday and Saturday.

It gets smaller each year, but this year there had a good crowd and we had new dealers from in and out of state. I shared a table with Art Bissel. He only stuck around for the one day. I did both days and sold two watches on Saturday. Bought mostly tools and one watch. Sold a Gruen Quadron I restored.

Here is my view from our table; although it looks sparse, this was just prior to opening on Friday morning:

Sitting across from Art and I is Bert, a fixture in the Boulder Horological Society. I've had some interesting and fun conversations with him.

Awesome Jack! I tried my best to get out there but the best laid plans seem to fall through. The NAWCC has me tied in again for our 2020 regional, they are downsizing to a casino. I'm trying my best to weasel out and not get shouldered like my last go around.

How is Art doing BTW? We do miss him here on the forum. His watches are some of the finest pieces on earth!
