I want to thank you all for such a warm welcome to LJ’s !!!! I have been enjoying my time here a great deal. There are so many wonderful projects on here already !!!
Last month I went to do my first ever show/sales event.I set up a tent at a renaissance festival to sell my work.It failed miserably!!! But that is OK because I talked to other vendors there and they told me that this particular show was just the wrong choice for my work.It was a more low-end show that they bring their low-end priced goods.My carvings were admired but very few bought cause they didnt have the money.
I now have a different plan and a better understanding of where to go with my work.I will do more renaissance festivals but I will do my homeowrk first on each one i go to ,to make sure I get the right one !!!
But now….The first weekend of February I am going to my first carving competition!! I will also set up a table and see if I can recoupe some of my losses from the faire last month.I am really excited to do this competition,as it will give me a confidense booster and some cred .Of course if I get a ribbon LOL
More to come…...................
Happy woodworking my friends!!!!!!
