    No one will notice mismatched zippers. That much I can promise. I'm normally a little crazy about the details for show stuff, but that one isn't even on the radar. Just make sure it's a good quality...

    I was warming people up the other day with a simple whiskey or brandy tea. Brew whatever kind of tea you like, then add brandy or whiskey, and honey or lemon depending on taste. Very simple and quite...

    If you have a good cobbler, they can make them fit you if they're too wide. Best to go with someone who specializes in stuff like this, though.

    Why not optimal time, instead? It slows down those that are gunning it to "win" over speed bumps.

    I think there are occasional local shows for everyone where the judging is questionable. Even rated shows. The annoying thing is that you're paying for someone's opinion. And organizational skillz....

    You won't be "looked down on." Unfortunately, you'll still be charged. Those who do not rent a stall generally get charged a haul-in or a grounds fee - for instance, at HITS it's $25. Last time I did...
