  • Today’s market

    Was cold, wet, and crazy. They see it, they like it and buy it. People who come out in the cold and rain are there for one reason - to buy! 3 cheese boards left, 4 pepper grinders, 5 candles, 1 wreath, one nativity and some cardholders. Wanted to take pic at the end, but the rain ended and sun came out, of course, with 25-30 wind gusts. PHEW! Time for a nap.

      That is some great work Betty! Very impressive.

      Betty you are blessed to have such markets in your area (as are all others who have them in your area). I have not seen a craft show or market in this area for a very long time. We did one 20+ years ago and I did a horse themed stand about 13 years ago. My wife and I also had some things in a craft consignment shop 15 years ago or so and that is long gone! I am so happy for you!

        They are are Sue Mey patterns. Are there farmers markets near you? This is our weekly farmers market in Annapolis. It runs Saturday Easter to end of December and Sunday year round. A lot of markets are allowing crafters in. From June to September farmers usually take most of the spaces since it is a farmers market. We stopped all other events and just do this market and the 3 day show.

          Good for you! We had our one and only in person fair on Saturday. Like you the weather was horrible.! Low traffic but it did pick up a few times during the day. We were down about 5 vendors from previous years for a variety of reasons. In the end we did reasonably well. There were three competing fairs in the village I will be curious to find out how they did. I had another small table with all of the puzzles that I had cut for the FC puzzle book.

            Thx Betty, no there isn’t any markets worth while, plus I don’t want a job, it’s just give away to family and friends. Rolf nice setup, your church must be beautiful looking at those interior shutters, RJ

              RJ actually that room was an add on to our sanctuary it was meant to be a Gym and the shutters where to protect the windows. I has never seen a basketball since it was built in 2001. Our pre school uses it and we use it for many events plus we rent it out for private use.

                Rolf, on your second picture did you resize O Holy Night or was that the angle of the camera? How did you carve the bowl behind it? A little birdie told me I was getting the rest of what I need so I can do bowl and spoon carving. Actually, I told the bird what I needed/wanted. Your work is amazing.

                  Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                  Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                  will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
