I have finished a summer of farmers markets and a couple of craft shows. All in all I think it is a good start, but it hasn’t been good enough. I have gained skills and have learned a lot about presentation. What I haven’t learned is how to get people to stop longer at my booth. I am pleased with the summer and look forward to what the fall and holiday season have to bring.
In order to continue with this I have had to step back a bit and supplement with a part time day job. I am working at a UPS store during the middle of the day, getting in between 30 and 35 hours a week. In some ways this will take some of the pressure off, allowing me to explore more ideas for the shows.
Over the last couple of months I have introduced the P-51 Mustang kit. This is an airplane model kids and adults can sand and glue together. The paints can be purchased at any craft department. The new quilt holders have been introduced in October. Keep an eye out for the new Pegs and Jokers game coming out in a week or so.
