« Part 19: Harvest Festival Part 20 of The Shows series Part 21: Return to the Shows »

Although not a massive day, today was a very pleasant surprise. As usual the mugs and boxes did well. Also sold some shelves and a trunk. I did this show with my mother mainly because she wanted to. I didn’t expect to sell much. For a one day show it was great. I would definitely do it again next year. The shows have been slower this year than last year. Only doing a couple select holiday shows, so my next big show is the end of January.

Good luck to all in your holiday shows.

It is good that you were able to share this experience with your mom. I know she must have enjoyed being there with you.

Congrats Monte, I just got though making 5 mugs for this weekends show but I’ve decided to sell them as non functional (decorative) and have reduced the price, since I don’t know for sure if the hobby store epoxy is safe once I I get the FDA approved epoxy in I’ll make and sale those but… a pint with shipping is $71.00 so not sure if it’s worth even making them anymore, I just don’t trust the off the shelf epoxy after reading the replies to test post I did a few days ago.
