And now we come to it...the booth you've all been waiting for, that of the National's fair haired child John Kanuit who always has the best booth of the show. John was sharing the booth with one of his peers of his same caliber, Matt Damon look alike John Orban from Cleveland heights Ohio. Kanuit appeared to be having a good show, said sales were brisk on Friday. The lions share of items in the booth appeared to be Kanuit's. I'll try to get the attributions correct but it may get fuzzy. Orban's items will be designated, all others are Kanuit's
