Default Craft Fair

Well it was a great day today. After all expenses including sales tax I cleared $530. Todays sales were peppermills (regular, mini's and antique), toothpick holders, wine bottle stoppers, pens, and ornaments. Never sold a bowl or vase. Tickled to death. The biggest comment I got was they look professionally done and made in America. So I am tired but all in all a great day.

Good to hear Bernie. I may be trying the craft fair out in a year or so too.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks Charles. I was really pleased and I think with the economy as it is people are buying local which definitely helps. Sitting here watching TV I had another 6 orders come it for another $400. So it is going to be a busy couple of weeks.

Out of all the items you had to sell, what would you say drew the most interest and is that what you sold the most of?
