  • Spring Festival Markets

    G'day all,
    Well, another Spring Festival done and dusted.
    It was a glorious day, Hughie really turned it on for us. Big crowds, lots of stalls and a lot of buyers
    Some pics of my set up and Lions Sausage sizzle trailer.
    Our Lions club made $1100 clear profit.
    I have to do some work on my display stands, but hopefully that can wait until after Xmas.
    enjoy.

          John -- I'd love one of the sausages right now! Looks like a fantastic market. The vast array of items in your display amazes me. You are the master. The Lions did well!! How did you do, if I dare ask?

              I'm jealous. Not of your success but the fact you did a SPRING show while those of us above the equator are doing FALL shows. I see nothing but falling leaves, ice, and snow snow snow in my near future. I wish I could say this little hobby will make me millions and millions so I can be a global jet setter to avoid the cold and snow snow snow (except at Christmas).

                G'day all,
                Thanks heaps for the great compliments, I need them at the moment.
                It truly was a great day, especially considering that the gates opened to the public from 9.30am to 3.30pm. We had the absolute best markets we had ever had.
                Fingers where crossed real tight, after the dust storm we suffered on the Sunday before. Coolgardie Day was closed at about 11am and a lot of stall holders lost stock, canopies etc.
                I'm just glad that we decided to go to the Boulder Markets instead.

                Now for those that need to know, we took $1900.00. If every market was like that I could retire in a few years, but than again I'd probably kill myself trying to keep up with stockface_dead.gif

                Below are a couple of pics of our back patio after the dust storm.

                  How did the trains sell? I think that is an ingenious idea.

                    Way to go, John! Didn't mean to pry -- but you do have a very impressive booth with a wide variety of inventory. Do I have time to book a ticket to your retirement party??

                    Looks like a bad dust storm! How long do your dust storms last? The ones here last from 1-2 hrs.

                        Jim, No problems re the prying mate. If I never wished to tell you, I wouldn't.
                        Yep, get that ticket booked mate, It'll be a big shindig.
                        This storm was one of the worst we've had for a few years, I'd say it lasted just over the hour mark. Red dust everywhere.

                              DITTO on the sharing!!! I am always open to ideas for displays! The tough part I have is the portability and stability!!! My booth always seems to get attacked by a woman and a wagon full of kids every year - lol! Not good for the merchandise!!!

                                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
