Hey Guys and Gals,

Just wanted to post an update on what I have been up to.

On Monday June 1st we set up our booth at the craft mall (will post pics soon). I have been busy getting stock ready for it. I have also made some card displays to have descriptions of our product.

Tearen—those banister railings from Rich Devos’ place make awesome votive candle holders.

I am using some of the dark wood that you gave me to make card holders.

So as you can see I have been quite busy and hopefully will be from here on out. I am hoping that this will work for me. I also plan to come up with some other things just to change up the look of things a bit.

There was another crafter there setting up and every other word out of her mouth was “My husband made me this” I guess here husband is a woodworker as well. Right now I am the only woodworker there. Let’s hope it stays that way.
Just thought y’all would be interested.

So, how’d it go? What’s your product?
I love to hear about someone “doing it”. This week I am also getting stock ready . I am taking LP record storage crates to retail this week. Saturday to be exact. I’d love to hear more about what you’re doing and how. Good luck and thanks for the update.
