I have made lots of little things in preparation for a local farmer’s market booth. i was so flattered to be invited! i actually made $60 over the booth fee! i realize that is not going to pay bills, but it sure was fun.

Hmmmm….I would have thought you would do good with the variety of items that you show. I sometimes think people are looking for a particular price range at markets and of course everyone is looking for a deal! AT least you covered some expenses and had fun. Maybe the exposure will lead you to some serious buyers. Your stuff looks well made and pretty cool!

I agree that your work looks great! There is no rhyme or reason for having success at a show. One show we thought would be a bust turned out into our hottest sales ever and another where we thought we would do well turned out into a total bust, zip, zero, zilch! Only positive thing about that one was the entry fee was fairly low so we didn’t lose a lot, win some, lose some.

You’ve really got some amazing stuff there. I love the spoons. Thought about making some myself.

Okay, those are some great items.
I especially like the poplar? frame, the display table, which is almost like a cat tree, and the bowl?/ladel.
Hope you had fun,brandon

DO IT!! MATT!! LEAVE THE SQUARE WORLD ALONE FOR A MOMENT!!just get you a mortiser, if you are lucky enough to have one, use a drill press, so you don’t jerk your wrist! -cut to shape with a jigsaw or bandsaw, put a chain on your grinder, or a 35 grit wheel, and it is fun, fun, fun…till you have to sand the inside! – or unless you get almost finished and discover a soft spot!
