This is my offering for our main street craft fair. Lots of work getting everything done but lots of fun to do. First picture is me and the Wife ready to go. Second is all my products. Third I have my post office door banks. A staple and best seller for the last two years. This year? Not a one sold! I guess it happens sometimes. On the bright side, a day later the calls came in and now they are all gone with many others wishing they bought one that day! Fourth is the bird feeders. Also a big item in other years. Only two left my table but even they are starting to go on phone orders. Flower carts is next. My final pic is of my newest offering, coasters! These will get their own project post. They lasted five minuets on the table. (Note to self, make a lot more next year)!

Thanks for looking, I learned that even if you have a bad day, your name still gets out. I also have orders now for more items.

Glad it worked out, your stuff is very nice. I would have thought those planters would go quickly, they’re real nice looking.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I had a lot of fun there. Seeing and talking to people.

They did in the past. Since then, almost all are gone from phone orders.

Vernon, I’ve hit a snag though, I ran out of doors! I’ve made 26 of the banks in the last three years and now I’m beating the bushes for more doors!

Tony, that’s exactly what happened. A box I sold was seen by the guy’s neighbors and prompted a “where did you get that”!

Great looking booth Jeff! Next year, twice as many coasters and watch everyone will want the planters!

Great work Jeff. Even if you didn’t sell it at the fair, it sounds like it’s all getting sold :-)
