After watching this video I thought I would also try running a scroll saw at the sale. I bought a battery and inverter and found a small (15”) used scroll saw for $30. ($160 total investment) Today I tried it out for the first time. The battery,inverter and this cheap little saw all worked very well. I expected to draw attention to my booth by running my saw and mastercarver there. The equipment worked great but few folks even looked to see what I was doing. They all went to my display of finished items. Sales were average at this show , The, on site, crafting seemed to have no effect on sales. I am glad I had it there though because there were long periods when there were no buyers or even lookers and I kept myself busy with this new (to me) little scroll saw. Turned out to be a productive day for me.
