Amherst attendance was 18,054, with just over 11,000 of that being Saturday's door.

I believe it. I didn't spend as much there as some past years. Not a lot of deals to be had. A lot of things that looked like deals but you look online and find no that's about what those bring right now.
LVRR and Tree:
Interesting information about the ARHS Springfield show...I have not posted
in about three weeks and wanted to find out more about this event.
From the attendance numbers that Tree posted: 18,054 x 15 = $270,810.00
On Saturday alone: 11,000 x 15 = $165,000.00 if all listed were actual paid
admissions - is the actual attendance number even higher counting vendors
and other staffers at the show? These "paid" admissions show a good gate...
Could the lack of so-called "bargains" at the ARHS Show be because the show
overhead in full for vendors and others attending is very costly?
I noted the mention of Izzy's new two-day show in Fulton, NY. With a new show
of this type will it take time to become "established" with vendors and patrons?
Would it be worthwhile to return for the Sunday hours depending on how well
that you do on the Saturday since the distance from Syracuse is reasonable?
Another thought came to my mind remembering your past reviews of train shows-
Is there any that are worthwhile to attend just to "pick"? What I am thinking is to
either not set up and just "hunt" or bring along help to allow you time to walk a
given show? If you would rather not say any specific show I do understand...
Thanks again in advance for any feedback on the subjects...MACTRAXX
