Festifall was Fantastic

The weather was amazing, the event was well oragnized, and a ton of awesome people came out to see the great vendors lining Franklin Street.  Thank you to everyone that stopped by the My Truck Leroy booth.  Festifall was our best show to date!

We are excited about this weekend-Shakori and Craft Attack.  For everyone that wasn't able to make it to Festifall, drop by and see us at one of the shows this weekend coming up.

*Just a reminder:  Although I would love to be making custom orders, the My Truck Leroy workshop has been closed down in preperation for our trip around the world.  This means that we only have our current inventory and cannot do any custom orders until the shop is re-opened (probably sometime in 2011).
