This is the one time each year where I actually get out and try to sell plants to the general public. Hilo is not a big place and, although this is the biggest such event on the island, the show probably sees far less people than at a large flea market on the mainland. Still, it is our chance to share locally and we can sometimes make a few bucks.
Although not mandatory a display is expected. Having done this a few years in a row I can tell you that I am never happy with the display. The venue is a large tennis stadium and no matter what you do the displays always look too compartmentalized to me.
I though I would try something fun this year and put a time-lapse camera in the back of the display to record peoples reactions as they visit.
