These pics were taken and emailed to me a couple of weeks ago. This was my first time doing any kind of “market” and it was great. As you can see, I hand carve and turn bowls. My girlfriend makes hand made jewelry. We set up a little booth at our local Green Market that is held the first Saturday of every month during the warmer months. This one was a special one they have for the holidays. I was very surprised at the responses we got. Everybody that stopped by told us what a great job we were doing and to keep it up. Even sold some stuff too. I made more $ in 5 hours sitting down there than I have in a whole week at work, in a long time. This is a great motivator for me to continue doing what I’m doing. We had another nice little surprise close to the end of the day. The gentlemen in the last pic, in the red coat and beret is the owner of the Corinth Area Artist Guild. He is inviting my girlfriend and I to put some of our stuff on display there and they would try to sell it for us. I know my stuff is nowhere near “gallery quality” but I think its pretty cool that he would take special interest in our work. I can’t wait to do another market. Thanks for lookin.
