If you are ever near Murrell’s Inlet, SC check out Atalaya Castle at Huntington Beach State Park. It’s the neatest place. I have to say the arts festival there this past weekend was wonderful. The people were very complimentary of my work and appreciative that we came to the festival. All of the festival staff and park rangers went out of their way to make it a great festival for the artists. Definitely looking forward to going back!
I did well in Charlotte this weekend. Out of my 12 entries, 10 of them placed! 3 of them even got a blue ribbon. This begins our show season. Be sure to check our events page to see where we will be. Next stop, Evans Co Wildlife and Rattlesnake Festival!
2015 has been a wonderful year for Currahee Twisted Sticks! We met lots of new people, found some new and interesting venues to attend, had our work admired by some of the Walking Dead cast members and more! We've had a banner year and cannot thank our customers and fans enough! Thank you for appreciating our art and sharing it with others! We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Can't wait to see what 2016 brings!
This was our first time as a vendor at WalkerStalkerCon in Atlanta and we had The Best Time! For those of you who don't know, The Walking Dead on AMC is only the best television show ever and WalkerStalkerCon is an entire convention dedicated to the fans of the show. We got to meet several of the show's stars and lots of other interesting people. The fans like to dress up as their favorite characters, from Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon to gruesome Zombies, we saw it all! Lennie James, who plays Morgan on the show, was very impressed with our walking sticks. I got to talk to him twice about them! Hoping he'll soon be a proud owner of one! I also got to meet Loren Cohen aka Maggie Green! She was shocked and amazed by the detail and craftsmanship. Scared the pants off of Mackenzie Lintz from Under the Dome with one while she was hanging out at her sister Madison's (Sophia) booth. Got to talk for a while with Michael Cudlitz (Abraham/Bull Randleman from Band of Brothers) about the walking sticks and Toccoa's military museum and reunion weekend. Scott Wilson aka Hershel Green said he remembered meeting us and seeing our work last year when we attended as fans. Let's see, also got in front of Denise Crosby (Terminus Mary, Chief Tasha Yar from Star Trek; Next Gen.), Chad Coleman (Tyrese), Irone Singleton (T-Dog) and Tovah Feldshuh (Deanne Monroe).
I guess we handed out two to three hundred business cards. We made a few sales and some new friends. The exposure was great! I also got some ideas for new sticks and new markets that may be interested in them. Learned a lot, had a great time and made some great new contacts! WalkerStalkerCon Atl 2015 - Successful! Here are a few pictures from the event - enjoy!
COBRA! At the Repticon show in Columbia, SC a fellow vendor asked if I had ever done a cobra. I hadn't, but I started thinking that would be a really cool one to do! I had a stick with the right twists and turns, but it was too short. So, I cut off the twists and began carving the cobra's head. It's turned out great so far. You'll be able to see the finished product at our booth in Atlanta!
We are so excited!!! Currahee Twisted Sticks is honored to be a Vendor at this year's Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta! Please stop by and check out our new walking sticks and carvings!
