I only managed to get my pockets emptied by the renapur leather balsam stand

I bought some of this over 12 maybe 13 years ago!

still have loads left!

I didn't pay £12 a tub that they are selling it at now though :lol:

Yes not so cheap now I guess but looks as though it will last. I had some Frank Thomas leather cleaner in an aerosol it was shite at least this will keep me going for years

I worked there for about seven bike shows on the M&P stand and over those years I noticed a steady decline in the size of the show . My perception was that the prices charged by the NEC had driven away the smaller more interesting exhibitors in favour of the bigger corporations . If I cast my mind back even further I can remember when the local bike club of which I was member , could afford to rent a small stand just to promote a series of rallies . Don't let me put you off going but I'm just saying that it's nowhere near as diverse as it used to be .

No you are right there could have been a lot more exhibitors there and more variety. There were plenty of ear plugs stands but very lacking in other departments. It would have been nice to see more tyre exhibitors and some other manufacturers. Still a great day but I have to say I enjoyed this year's llangollen festival which I'll be making sure I go to next year.
