Man, does time fly. I just realized that it’s been over a month since my last post, and really, we haven’t done much. We did participate in the Old City Association Home Tour Street Fair and we had a great time. We had wonderful weather and despite the fact that there weren’t a lot of shoppers, we managed to do very well. In fact, since the booth rental was free, we had our most successful show ever. Honestly, we couldn’t have done it without our friends and family who come out to support us. It gives me a warm fuzzy when I think about it.
We did sign up for a holiday show at a local senior community. I know these aren’t terribly profitable, but it sounded like fun and since the booth rate is reasonable, we decided to go ahead. This will be my husband’s first show under his new “Woodworking by Eric” moniker. He’s got business cards and everything. Oh, and he’s recently opened his own Etsy shop (www.woodworkingbyeric.etsy.com).
I really need to get crackin’ on holiday beads now. Seems horrible to say that when we’re still a few weeks out of Halloween, but I think that the senior community might be a good market for them. I say that, but I really don’t have a clue. I thought that the home show tour would be a good market for the tile coasters we make… Not so much. Didn’t manage to sell even one set. Meh. Maybe we’ll have better luck at the senior community.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to. I am going to post one more picture of something I’ve been working on because I’m happy with the way it turned out…
