We were at the Kamm Island Music Festival in Mishawaka, Indiana this last weekend and thought we would share some photos of the booth setup. Please note that we were given a lot less time to set up than normal so had to skip a few things like canopy disguises, banners, backdrops, and tablecloths. Also, we were on a hill, so yeah, it’s not bad photography things look slanted!
We will be at the Michiana Rennisance Festival the weekend of 8/25/2018 in South Bend, Indiana! Come out and see us set up in our full glory!
You have opened your presents and had your holiday dinners. You have stayed out too late drinking and lighting fireworks to bring in the new year.
The Gingerbread Cookies have fought back adding a few pounds; indigestion boils, and the boredom begins to set in after the week of excitement.
You need to fight back after the holidays by finding something to do, and we have the perfect solution to arm yourselves against those post holiday blues!
Your first line of defense is to come arm up with us at CadiCon in Cadillac, MI on January 7th of 2017.
CadioCon is a small community convention put on for the local residents. A smaller convention it none the less sounds very cozy and we are looking forward to attending. You can find more information about them on their Facebook page.
I recently had the honor to represent my company and products as a vendor at GriffonCon 40!
This was a very special occasion for me as the Griffoncon 40 was a gaming convention to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Griffon Bookstore. The Griffon Book Store not only carries books but also has been the center of the South Bend, IN gaming community (and distant surrounding areas) for just as long.
Historical gaming, tabletop, RPG, Card, Board, or Miniatures, whatever your poison you could not only find excellent product choices at the Griffon but also expertise with a smile from its caring owners Ken and Sara. For desert, they treated you like a family member instead of a customer.
I grew up spending as much time at the Griffon or adventuring in the worlds it sent home with me, as far back as some of my earliest memories in life, as I have done just about anything else. While I can’t say I have been going there for 40 years, it is quite close to it.
It was for this reason that when I heard this convention would be taking place, I increased business goals and timelines to sell at a booth based operation format 1-2 years sooner than planned. I can certainly say it was one of the best decisions I have made!
The convention was fantastic from the events to the people. Everyone seemed to be having fun, events were continual and varied, the location was near-epic, and the food was excellent (Thank you Skillet! You could have charged way more, you know you could have, and you didn’t. I feel I speak for the entire local gaming community and visitors, when I say, we appreciate that!).
This turned out to be very fortuitous for me. We set up at the convention because I felt it was a great honor, and something I would regret if I did not do. Recently I have been hit with a few life changes, and I will be signing up to do a large number of conventions, festivals, and other area (and surrounding) events in 2017. I am prepared for this when I need to do it, quickly, because of the decision to attend the Griffoncon.
So The Griffon once again, like it has been doing for most of my life, has reached out, tapped me on the shoulder, and helped me make a subtle change to who I am and how I live my life. Perhaps a bit more accidently this time than usual, but I will take it none the less!
If you were unable to attend GriffonCon 40, but ever find yourself with an opportunity be sure to stop by and visit the Griffon Bookstore. Also pop into their game room, which is the longest continual running game room in the United States of America!
