One of my favorite activities at fairs is listening to the pitchmen!

I have been in this business my entire life. If you have any questions about it all you have you do is ask.

Note in most videos of pitchmen eye contact is generally at a minimum. There is a reason for this as I previously indicated.

Mark, you are correct about eye contact in this case. When I lived in Ft. Myers, Florida, there is a flea market there called Fleamasters. I absolutely LOVED watching the various pitchmen! They did not push junk. Even if directly asked a question, eye contact was impossibly brief. Just a glance, and then back to the "over-the-crowd" gaze, as I call it.

Mark you are a CLASSIC pitchman, and I could watch you all day!
