Mrs M convinced me a couple of years ago to begin selling at craft fairs.
Well, actually, it was the younger Mrs M that first thought this was a great idea. She convinced my Mrs M, and then I had to go along, as the younger Mrs M is the mother of our 2 Granddaughters. That makes her the boss of me, and she wanted to go a-vendoring. They make small batch skin care products: lotions, balms, scrubs & soaps. I make cutting boards, cheese boards & wooden accessories.
After 2 years of good results, we decided it was time to make a dedicated booth for Mrs M’s. After too much discussion, and more than one sketch, we finally agreed on a design and I got to work.
Construction is of red and white oak. The main display separates into 11 main pieces for transport, and then assembles into 2 segments for display: the soap bleachers and the crate structure. 2 small crates are mobile for whatever purpose they’re needed for. In this iteration, only one of those is used in the main display; the other became a base for the price list on the left.
For a chronicle of the 2-year history of Mrs M’s booth (and to see our oh-so-humble beginnings), go to my blog, here.
