    I am looking for the best way to market my scroll saw creations other than Craft Shows. I specialize in scroll saw pictures in frames and shelves along with other scroll saw projects. Every thing I read is about craft shows. I would like to know the best way some of you scroll sawyers attempt to sell your products. Example: who do you approach and how along with pricing. I also do wood carving and would also like to know who to approach and how. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks: JoeLow :

    This is more along the lines of what to look out for xxx

    Several years ago I put some wood burnings and scroll items in a craft shop on consignment. The shop went out of business and the owner absconded with the items. Open one day empty the next. Not enough in there to make it worthwhile to go after the ownere legally so just wrote it all off.

      Let me tell you what has worked for me.... Here in Western MD we have a local farmers market that is open all year and has a section set aside for crafters.  I set up for Nov/Dec and then again in the Spring just before Easter.  I do a lot of different scroll work from custom portraits to inspirational pieces to clocks, etc.  The nice part is I only have to give up half of each Saturday (6AM to Non) to do the market.. I have been very successful there.
      I also look for small unknown shows (local churches, etc) and have done real well there also.
      Plus I set up a website to sell my patterns and finished work that does well... the hosting company I use only cost me about $200 the first year and then only $25/yr after that and icludes the cost of my domain name (for more info email me)
      These are just a few suggestions I hope they help... just my 2 cents.

        My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

        Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...

        My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....
