  • First of my two sales tomorrow. NOW WITH PICTURES

    I do two large, well large by my standard, craft shows each year. Traditionally my best show is tomorrow. Will be heading over early this afternoon to setup. I will try to remember to post pictures. I am concerned with my inventory as this past year was busy. Good busy but I did not get my typical shop time. Well it will be what it will be.

      Had a banner day. Will provide pictures soon. This is my best event and I beat last year's record sales by 8%. Credit card sales were up by 15%. Alex Fox crosses sold well especially the colorized ones.

          Not surprised to hear you had a great day of sales Scott. Everything looks great with your setup. I know the cutting is exceptional. Congratulations on a great day. Thanks for sharing photos and giving update, hope your next one does as well.

            Nice setup with a great variety of stuff. How well do the dogs do? I have been thinking of doing a series of Judy gale Roberts dog designs.

                  I made the 10 most popular breeds. I think there are 40+ in the book. I get lots of comments on but the best sellers are the small breed dogs (pug, boston terrier). I enjoyed making them as they incorporated scrolling, wood burning and staining.

                    How did the crosses and music items do?

                      Sold 7 at show and 3 more through FB. Interesting of those only one was the plain color. The colorized ones sold better and received the most compliments.

                        I think the color gives them more depth. Your displays are awesome. I told Bruce I want an overhaul for next year. His comment was “Elliott is off from school tomorrow, think I’ll get him for a few hours.” I think I was ignored. 😂

                          My racks are gridwall. The black backing are just a couple cheapo black twin size flat sheets I attach with spring clips. A bit heavy but easy to setup, transport and store.

                            I use sheets on my tables. Cheap and easy to use and wash.

                              I get to do my one day sale this Saturday. My displays are slowly getting more sophisticated. I had to upgrade to peg board last year from just having stuff lying flat on a table. But that was because of some much larger things I had done. This year with my Mom making some wreaths out of Christmas ornaments, I had to double my space and I hope to take some of the peg board space from her side!

                                by Don in Brooklin On
                                I use wipe on poly quite often and I apply 2 thin coats before sanding with 220 or 320. I wipe with a lint free. Someone told me not to use tack cloth as you can leave behind a wee bit of beeswax witch could cause issues later on.

                                I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

                                Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                                How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

                                Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way.
