I need to find someone to make me a few pieces to exhibit on a midway. I'm framing a walk thru and want top quality.
Thanks in advance.

Eric-
Like your stuff..
The "Lincoln Log" and "Larry the Lamb Boy" are my favorites...

Curator- Thank you, I'm glad you like them. If all goes as planned, the Lamb Boy you like will be appearing in the movie "The Collector 2: The Collection" along with about 6 of my other sideshow gaffs. They've already done the filming, so I'm anxious to see how it goes.

Doug- Congrats on the Ripley's story. I saw it a while back but haven't been on to mention it to you until now.

Double meaning on gaff..... faked stuff used in show... I never use 'em. I'll let the lesser skilled ones lift empty car batteries and foam cinder blocks.

Yep a couple of meanings to the word Gaff...but to me it's full time, 7 days a week, allowing one day off a month usually, so around here, it's working on 'attractions' and props...the 'Gaff' is my day off. Smile

Thanks for the help, and thanks to Doug for calling me. When I was a kid the gaff was reffered to as the "gee on the joint".

Your welcome. There are many ways you can go with what you want to do and the ideas you already have and it sounds to me like you need some bold taxidermy. Also, in the Carnival biz there are folks that know a lot more than I do about mounting a large midway show so it's good your asking around. I just make stuff and have some ideas on doing a Flea Market single-o. What you are wanting to do requires a really good flash artist and a solid theme. But, If I can make you someTHING, just hollar.

Triple meaning on gaff. Gaff for a half. If ya' don't know, don't ask.

I concur; When I traveled as a Carney it had the same meaning
