  • Craft Show, Day 1

    Customers were sparse, but I did okay, since most of them purchased from my booth. No other woodcrafters, just me. Lots of fabric crafts and jewelry.

    The little wood cars and the moose magnets were both good for sales. Also sold the last 3 crayon trucks, whoohoo!

    The rubber band guns are still there, but 3 young girls will each have one tomorrow, according to their mom.

    I still have lots of birdhouses and angels....did sell 3 birdhouses to one customer. Oh well, I still had a blast making them. LOL

    No buyers for my pretty baskets, just compliments. Sold a variety of other things tho'.

    Not a big dollar day, but good enough to have a few $ in my pocket to buy more wood, to make more stuff.

    I took my camera to the craft show, left it in my purse the whole time and it's still in there. I will take pics as soon as I get there tomorrow, or I'll space it again.

      Nancy -- Glad that most folks bought something from you. It is always good to be able to buy more wood to make more stuff. Good luck tomorrow.

        Dan and Jim,

        Thanks, I'm hoping for more customers tomorrow. The Legion is having Line Dancing lessons in their lounge tomorrow, so maybe the participants will have $$ stashed in their boots to buy stuff from us. LOL

        I'm having a good time even if sales are meager. It's good to get out and meet folks from the area. Travel time is minimal, this show is only a mile from home.

        Pictures and final tally tomorrow.

              Good observation Scott! You found a mistake on my side

              The shop extension should read 11ft, not 13ft! I screwed up my conversion from cms to feet and inches.

              You had me worried though that I'd screwed up the placement holes for the uprights and cross beams so I just went...

              Just curious about the 13' extension. Building material, especially sheet goods are in 4' increments. Why 13'?...

              Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

              Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

              Wow! - this a stunning piece!

              In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....
