GREAT FUN ----- GREAT STONEWARE ------ GREAT FRIENDS
DISPLAYS ARE NEEDED FOR UPCOMING CONVENTION
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED !
We are still in need of displays for our convention. Remember a display does not need to be stoneware. In the past we've had displays on antique coffee tins, toys, banks etc. The club pays $100.00 to those who put up a display.
If you would like to do a display please contact Greg or Terry Skelton at email@example.com or phone 423-357-1913
