    Do Americans have this type of thing available ?

    Hi ALL, MY GOOD FRIENDS Maggie and Nigel from http://thewoodenkoicompany.comHave just come back from a show in southern England, where they sold most of the stock they took!

    The question I am asking in some ways is a bit of market research, so if I am over stepping the mark, sorry !

    They make and paint Koi related items, and sell lots of them !

    Have a look at them, and give me some feed back thanks.

    Would you buy them ? How much would you be willing to pay ?

    I ask because I would like them to go to U.S.A. and be part of one or more of your shows .

    Brian

    If they would like to take a Florida vacation next March, have them contact me. I'd love to have them be a vendor at the Orlando show. It is not as big as the Southeast, but I've no doubt they would enjoy themselves. ...I've learned never to predict what will be fancied by kichi from one year to the next, so I'll not guess about sales.

    How awesome, maybe an outlet in Australia would be magic.

    here in the pacific NW, Patti Magee for years sold her beautiful koi art as a vendor. Last year after diminishing sales, she quit going to shows and sold that part of her business. She had prints, cups, serving trays, almost anything you can think of with her really beautiful artwork. ( over the years I acquired several) From where I stand at our vantage point, it's a very tough business. her work is superb, so I'm really thinking it's more the economy. my 2 cents or your haa'penny.....

    Thanks for your interest, I think the cost of shipping would be the killer, but who knows ?

    Contact them and see !Do Americans have this type of thing available ?-17-inch-showa.jpgDo Americans have this type of thing available ?-cambridge-koi-show.jpg

    For those of you using a laptop, move the screen when looking at the single Koi, to see the true detail on the fish.
