Getting Ready for a Show

My last craft fair for the season is this weekend. The SUNY Plattsburgh Arts and Crafts Fair is held at the SUNY Fieldhouse. It is a pretty good local show. Normally I would do a couple more shows before Christmas, but this year I do not have the inventory to support that. 

This week, I am working on last minute projects and making sure I have my display ready to go. A couple years ago I wrote a blog post about what you need for a craft fair. You can read it here

For now, I’ll just share a couple of the new pieces that I will have at the show.

Christmas Ornaments

I’ve already had people asking about my hand burned Christmas ornaments. I really have to start working on these earlier next year. I haven’t been able to list many online because I can’t keep them in stock locally. The good news is that I just received a large supply of wood slices to keep up with the demand. this year the types of wood include birch, maple, cedar, apple, linden, and a few more that I don’t have definite identification of. I’m also looking in to adding key chains to what I sell. 

Here are a couple of pictures of some of my ornaments (and a spoon) in progress.
