  • Street Fair

    Our Woodworking club did the annual Thousand Oaks Street Fair last Sunday. The club paid for our booth, and had 12 members participating. I was the only scroller of the group. We had three tables set up, with no back drops for hanging. With 12 members displaying, there was not very much room to display our stuff properly. Next year, we will have two booths and I will build some backdrops to hang portraits and clocks.
    I sold 40 mini birdhouses, about 20 gift card holders, some mini clocks and a hole slew of other stuff. Altogether we sold close to $2000, with me doing the best at $550!
    I still have two other shows to do this year, so hope to do better!
    The pictures were taken before the show started, and I took the pictures, so I am not in any of them.

            Great variety and great cutting!!! The colors and choices of the woods are awesome1 Do you use all natural woods or are some of the work stained?

            Thanx for sharing and good luck with the next two shows/festivals!

                  Hey Kim, Thanks for the compliments. Yes all natural woods. The only time I use stains is on portrait backer boards. Everything pretty much gets the same finish. A 50/50 mix of boiled linseed and mineral spirits. Then when dry, Deft semi gloss spray lacquer.

                    Farmers market "survey"
                    by Linda In Phoenix
                    Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                    I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                    For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                    The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                    Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                    Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                    So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                    I like the fact...

                    Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
