  • White Meadow Lake Market Place

    Had two tables here (16 linear feet) this past Sunday. This was my second year here and it was very successful even though it was 90 outside, the humidity was about the same, and a passing storm we down the area for 30 minutes or so. We were indoors, with air conditioning. The Market Place ran from 11-5 and I made a fair chunk of change; more than enough to cover all my costs and buy much more replacement wood and supplies than I used to make the stuff I sold. They run it in conjunction with their annual festival days carnival, 5K run and other events. Here are some pictures of my set up and one taken from the deck on the back of the club house of part of White Meadow Lake.

    The clamps are holding a couple of pieces of nylon cord to hang pictures and wall hangings from since I was not allowed to hang them on the wall. It worked very well and they suffered no damage.

    Glad you had a good day. I really like when something wholesome succeeds.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

        Congratulations on a successful show! I like your set-up.
        One of my routes takes me through the area,(on Green Pond Road) headed to West Milford. Beautiful area!
        Glad you had a good show.

            Thanks for all the positive feedback folks.

            Dave, it really is a beautiful lake.

            Rolf, this year it was Judaica themed items along with two of Carl Hurd-Ritters menorahs. I also sold two of Roy Kings baskets, several trivets, some candy dishes, and a lot of puzzles of all types, especially my 16 piece square and cylinder puzzles and toddler tray puzzles. I have given up trying to predict what will sell. Last year, I sold a lot of bookmarks and letter openers and standup puzzles. This year very few. I just bring all I make and put out samples of each variety. My inventory list is invaluable when people ask me if I have a ---------, I can quickly look. Since I keep my boxes, all labeled of course, of extras behind and under the area where the objects are displayed, it is really easy to find something.

              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...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              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!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

              Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
