Hey All,

I moved from Colorado to Ohio a couple months ago and just got approved to set up the grind show at the "Lakewood Summer Meltdown Festival" in July. That's about ten minutes West of Cleveland with an attendance of about 10,000. Can't wait to get my beauty back out there. The 'Strange Thing' rides again!

I can't, but, the late Wayne Franzen trained OKHA, his Asiatic elephant, to walk a rolling globe across the ring! She has been doing it since the '70s,

I did the grind show a long while back and made some money and had some fun. When people asked where I got it I would explain, "I bought it from a retired side show worker, which isn't a total lie. People had a great time and no one complained about paying a dollar to see it.

Have my first pocket zibit arriving tomorrow - Higley's flea to compliment my flea circus. I pitch mice at my circus, but figure the Higley flea would be a great addition. Also have my first single-o being worked on currently; and excited about putting the zibit together for it this summer. A handful of relatively big flea markets this way; all within 30 minutes or so of me, so a local market to try it out on with the benefit of a couple of them drawing out of towners to freshen the pool a bit.

Considering a campy old sideshow (girl in fishbowl, half lady, etc) for the fall season this year as well and will make room for the zibit en route.

How's the crowd your way for busking and such? I'm at the Old West End Festival in Toledo for the first time this year, but haven't worked anything that way before... curious

Dennper: Dare I ask what the Strange Thing actually is? And to be more crass, how well does a tent zibit of that nature actually play in today's over stimulated market?

Owen: Basically the same question about how your pocket zibit plays at local flea markets.

I've been playing with the idea of putting together a small tent show. Shrunken head, figi mermaid or some other bizarre oddities from the parts unknown. Just not sure how big a market there is for a $1 a pop lookie lu.
