  • Craft Show

    This post goes out to everyone who gave wonderful advice on how to do a craft show to what reading material to follow up on. I did my first show this past weekend and I came out a winner, and other people around me who had a table were surprised it was my first show due to the way it was prepared. I wanted to share a tip for building things up in layers instead of using your boxes you can use the white 2 inch thick styrophone. This works like a charm and can be covered with material or latex spray paint without issues. Thanks again to the feedback as it got me into my next show in May which is a jury selection that I passed as soon as they saw my booth.

      Glad it was a success, Eric.

      The threads on here about presentation at craft fairs have been very interesting. I haven't sold anything at a craft fair but one day perhaps ..

      We've actually been to a couple of local craft fairs around here recently, as customers, and surprisingly there has been very little woodworking of any kind on display.

      I kept thinking about some of advice that had been given on here and at times looking at the stalls layout rather than the stuff they were selling at times ..lol.

      Must admit the biggest turn-off for me are the vendors who sit there reading a book, as if they're not interested in selling!

          Great story, Eric!

          Goes to show what a powerful tool the internet can be for learning, if one has the desire. The craft show threads were amazing, and it sounds like you picked the best of the best ideas and added some of your own!

          There are two shows I'd particularly like to go to next year. I've got to tell you, your success story has got me pumped.

            I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

            Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...
