I took an Elk pattern of mine and decided to add a light. I thought it would be a big hit at the craft show, but instead it became a Christmas present for my little sister.

Don’t feel bad Kindlingmaker, my knuckles are usually safe, but I always manage to run a fingertip into the blade.

I can tell you this. You never know what’s gonna sell at a craft show. Your work is by far, better then that. Try online maybe. I’ve only did craft shows a few times and when people buy is when my friends come over to the table and stand around for ahwile talking. Everyone else thinks your stuff is flying off the shelf, when it’s really not. Then they buy. Impulse buying, which I don’t like. Not that I’m not guilty of that myself, but I don’t like it. I havent done one for aleast 15 or 20 years and probably never will again, since we have the internet now. I suggest you find a shop, gift shop, that can put your things in. Some charge commission and some don’t. Or try the internet. Good luck with it.

Thanks Janice, I appreciate your kind words about my work. I do one craft show a year and everything else is by special order, which seems to keep me as busy or as bored as I want to be. Thanks for the advice!
