I just came home from my first attempt at a 2 day “Christmas ” event. About 15 people all rented the local hall and displayed their wares. My wife decided to rent a space and show my stuff. I have blogged a few times about using re-cycled lumber and making furniture out of it. I thought we need to start somewhere. Well, for 2 days I was given the opportunity to listen to people tell me how unique, how original, and how good the work was. They mentioned prices are fair. All I wanted was someone to buy just one piece to cover the cost of the weekend. Whoops . DIDN’T happen. OH well, my name is out there. (I know it was not the right crowd, first 2 hours in the morning the ”Cane gang” came through. These were elderly ladies that were spending the day looking. Then the NOON gang came. (These were hungry people, they knew the person putting it on for past 12 years made a terrific lunch.) Anyway, Yes I am a bit disappointed. I am confident that the work I am doing will eventualy find a home. Overall it was a good weekend. Met some really kind exhibitors that offered some really good tips for next time. We always will learn something.Patience, RIGHT ?
