  • Day 1 of Craft Show


    I made it to the show today! Guess that kidney stone is gone.

    My pics are not too good, sorry. People kept coming by and it was hard to get a good shot. At least you can see our set up. The smiling woman sitting at the end of one table is my SIL Silvia.

    Fridge magnets were good sellers. I'm almost sold out.

    Not a single bunny dish has sold so far. Thought sure they would go early.
    Never know what the customers will buy.

    We did sell a variety of $5-15 items, which is ok with us. We made booth rent, Indian business License fees and are still $$ ahead.

    Traffic was steady all day. There are 70+ vendors at this show and a good variety of quality items are available.

    Saturday should be a very good sale day, according to past history. Here's hoping they run to our booth with $$ waving. LOL

                    It's great to pay your expenses on the Friday. Typically Saturdays are the busy days.

                    Is the show in a casino? We did one in a casino once - never again. People are more interested in spending their money in the slots.

                    Hope the rest of the weekend goes great for you!

                      Glad to read you made it to the show......too bad you didn't pass the kidney stone, you could have put it in one of those Easter boxes as an attraction lure to your table.
                      Good luck with the rest of the weekend.

                        He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                        Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                        I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                        You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
