Russell, you do some nice work, but you need to get it to people willing to pay for it. Flea markets and swap meets are not it. At a minimum set your pieces apart. Put some of your stuff on your tables.

Marketing woodworking is tough. The average person just doesn’t understand the difference between your stuff and walmart’s and an expensive table isn’t going to sell with a bunch of low priced nick-knacks on it. If you can sell, you need to sell those setting up the displays that idea.

I obviously don’t have the answer. If I did, I’d be doing it.

Just out of curiosity, why is it so expensive to get the pieces to the store?
