    I did a home show this weekend. Small booth cost me about $350. I got 23 bid requests and quite a few "I'll give you a call" people. I took in a permagreen thinking it would create questions and conversation. One person asked about it. The best sales item was a weed poster. People liked to point out the weeds they have and liked knowing the name of them. The show was time consuming but definitely worth it.

    I did one 2 years ago. I would say the best money I have spent for advertising. Took in an aerator. 1 large mower and many pictures. I sold well over 100 aerations and landed 3 large accounts and 2 commercial accounts. I still have people calling me with the old flier I had for that home show.
