Default Small Batch I Finished Up

Just a few I finished up to go to the neighbors Antiques, Primitives & Crafts Mall. Got another one done that needs paint and sanded I bet Frank knows which one it is. lol Not trying t do anything real fancy and detailed right now until I get a few more common blanks made up for some sales.

BobbyLee,

Throw something like these, or offshoots, in the mix and see what, if anything, sells. Maybe add a funny image. Good way to use small pieces and scrap, as well as good material. I've found that the simplest and what you least expect will sell, and the nicest, "can't miss" items sit on the shelf. Buyers are unpredictable and downright confusing to figure out, so don't even try. Once you get an idea what moves, build on it.

You got that good local, handmade look.

Thanks John. Happy Wife Happy Life was already on my list to do. But will add If Mama Ain't Happy as well as the others. What font did you use for the Mama Ain't Happy? Thanks my friend.

My favorite : "You can't fix stupid". That would apply to the morons I see on TV showing their rears on a regular basis. lol

Bobby love that dog sign!

John I have found that you never know what people will buy. I thought some items would be great sellers and almost had to give them away to get rid of them and then I have had items that I did not like making because I thought they were not worth the time and materials and sold out in the first hour of sales and wished I had more.

The most important thing to take away from this is everyone has different tastes so make at least a couple to try them out, you may find that item that will make you your first million.
