Over the holiday I had a chance to sell my carvings. My show was a great success. This was my 2nd year for this show. All my inventory was sold in about 3 hours. I felt like my pricing was fair to me and my customers. Price ranges from $5 to $75. I do all the carving and my wife Karen does all the painting. This paid for our trip to the Seattle area to see our grandkids over Christmas.

The sizes of my carvings range small ornaments up to 12” tall pieces. All were made out of basswood. My wife painted each with acrylic paints. I used brown shoe polish to make as a distressed look.
