Nice looking booth Randy!
I was thinking that maybe with each purchase you could attach a card that would lead your customer’s to their item on Lumberjocks. They would read all the nice comments people have left on the item they bought from you. Just a thought.
Hope you did well at the show!

Wrong venue Monte, only sold three items, this was a flea market type of a venue, my stuff was above others, I most likely won’t go back that location again I made rent, gas and enough for a few nice dinners.

Right Randy. You don’t want flea market venues. People expect stuff too cheap. Some craft shows turn out the same. I ran into that this winter…............Jim

It all looks great! Too bad it was the wrong venue, I’ve had that happen and it is so frustrating and disappointing!

Nice looking display Randy…sorry it wasn’t a better show for you. You definitely have to sort out the shows and determine what you feel will be your market. my wife and I have checked out numerous shows, fairs and festivals over the years and scratched many off our list after evaluating what the clientelle appeared to be buying and what type of art/crafts were being offered.
Here is a good art show website you might want to check out if you are not already familiar with it

You have a great set up with a lot of nice stuff. Sorry it didn’t go well. It’s hard to find folks who appreciate handcrafted woodwork enough to trade their money for it.

Andy, I’m just now getting my feet wet as this was my second one to do, I think it’s a matter of finding that right venue but with a right venue I’m sure the booth rental will be much more, this venue I was at was only a $40.00 rental fee.
