We did our first gig this weekend with our new trailer. We were given permission to set up in front of the Braselton Antique Mall. Saturday was kind of a dress rehearsal for us. Didn t do a lot of business but that was OK it gave us time to test out the ice shaver and the lemon squeezer. Sunday afternoon the city had a small parade. We did have a small rush before and after the parade. Didn t lose money nor make much. We did purchase a Star Hotdog steamer from a former hotdog vendor for $200, it is missing one of the lids but since we are not using it for self serve a ½ pan lid should fit it. Going to clean it up and use it at the Auction House snack bar.
There was a small festival in the park down the street from us. The crowd was OK; we would probably have done better there on Sunday then where we were at. Not many drink vendors but several food vendors.
The lady who owns the Antique Mall wants us to set up regularly. We did have several people stop just to get shaved ice. We are going to check with the city to see if it is feasible. If we add hotdogs and sodas to our menu we can probably do a good business opening Friday afternoon, Saturday & Sunday.
As soon as I can learn to post pictures I will.
