My kids school was having a yearly fundraiser, so I thought I would try participate this year. Missed taking photos of a few, but these were a few of the one I had left over afterwards.

First time ever sittings behind a ta selling things. Was interesting to see the least!

If you don’t mind saying how was the show?

I was teaching at a private high school and the elementary school had a Christmas show. I was offered a free table so I said what the heck. Nothing over about a $1.50 sold. I had a nice Regulator style clock that I offered for $60 and people wanted to talk me down to $10 for it. Heck I had over $30 in movement, face, hands, etc. Never do one of this type of show again!

Well. I expected very little going into a first attempt.. but.. I did, OK.. ish.

People happily paid the prices, for the few boards that did sell.. I recovered all costs if nothing else. Now I need to figure out what to do with my remaining boards. Christmas gifts here I come. Haha

Just an obversation on my part when it comes to selling clocks. The younger generation have no interest in them. They use cell phones for the time and a lot of them can’t read a clock. The older generation already have clocks and have very little interest in purchasing a new one. Or maybe this is just my opinion. Clocks are a tough sell regardless.

BTW, nice board.
