Just wanted everyone to know that soon I will have my stuff on permanent display at a local craft mall. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I found this place in an ad in a local paper. The guy is charging $45.00 a month for a 4’x3’ space. Right now he has no wood products there. So this an opportunity to get my name out there. I am geeked about this.

Now I have to build up my stock.

Just though that I would share the good news

Can you snap a picture sometime and post it?
I am trying to picture how the craft mall works given the dimensions (4X3) are you sharing his booth?

Love to hear more about the set-up and especially if it works out

Thanks
Dave

I don’t have the booth yet. I am working on the set up for it. This is the first one I have done. So I am not sure how it is going to work. I will have my own booth. As soon as I get it I will snap some pics.
