So I have not been posting much lately as I have been readying up for craft fairs. My wife and I did one fair last year and liked it enough that this year we signed on to do 4 local fairs. The one we did last year (HOA) our church and two local schools. It should be interesting to say the least. The first one is tomorrow morning at the church then the HOA one is next weekend. The other two are later in the month but still back to back. I am hoping that I will have to make some additional product, but we’ll see. In the pics is a small sampling of what I have been making.
Pic 1- Selection of peg games.
Pic 2- Display crates for our table. The wife painted these up real nice with two different colors.
Pic 3- a display rack for beaded bookmarks and the lanyard pens in pic 4
Pic 4- a few of the lanyard pens. I also made about 30 standard pens.

I’ll post more pics in a blog this weekend once we are done with the show including one of our table as I think seeing other set ups helps people think about what they want.

Thanks all for looking.

Good luck at the craft shows, be sure to give us a “show Gloat” and let us know what the big sellers were.

Thanks All,
The show went pretty well. I sold a few different games and 5 pens. The big seller was my wife’s crayon rolls this year. Which is funny since last year she did not sell many at all.

@wiser- I have a few of them posted here in projects and also my year long blog I did. Let me know what info you are looking for I will be happy to share.
@Kovo- Gracious I do have a lathe to turn my pens on. something I very much enjoy. I do not though turn the pegs.
@Grumpy- hopefully by the end of the 4 we are doing we will have sold everything.
