If you have time to make some wooden mugs like mine, they wiped me out at the fair. Wooden spoons went over well also.

if you live in a rural area with farmers and loggers, try a couple boot jacks. City people don’t know what they’re for. Sold about 8 of these also.

I sell at local craft fairs year round and I am usually the only wood worker there. I make and sell cedar boxes , for jewelery or whatever, with images inlayed into the lid. (Inlay is a lot easier to do than it seems to be. People like it also.) I also make signs of local ball teams and collage. I stack cut them so I can sell them cheaply. Rubber band guns sell well as do wooden toys of any kind. I also sell some intarsia. Just some more ideas for you.
