What really got to me was the number of times people wwould say that what I had for sale was good, but not good enough for them to buy. I remember one husband telling his wife that he could make what she was looking at. Right.

    So now I just give everything away, or I do woodworking on demand, I have fun making stuff and I love to see people enjoy my work.
    When you hear that BS line ask them what kind of saw they have and why don't you have a booth? Then look him in the eye and raise the price.

    I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

    Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
