My First Craftshow finished Saturday, So fun! I got an hour and a half of sleep because of Over-excitement, Set up at 7:00 A.m., and got next to a booth with a 70 year old guy that did absolutely beautiful work Cutting detailed figures into wood with a Scrollsaw. The ad i got in the Town paper was mentioned by most every person that went by, sending my business through the roof, One Woman even ordered seven wallets to finish her Christmas shopping in one place. more than Fifteen Belts are in the works of being ordered and Finished, More than 35 orders placed in total, i was shocked how well it went. I brought along my Bowie Knife and it's Sheath, along with my game cleaning knife, for display, five people tried to buy the Bowie, and it has my last name on it xD!
The Woodworking Guy was looking at a Floral Tri-fold Wallet on my table, priced at $40.00, i saw one of his Wood cutouts Framed that i liked, and i made an Art trade of the wallet and $10 for a cutout he did of Soldiers Raising the American Flag on Iwo Jima in WW2. The Cutout is hanging in my shop right now, i'll post a picture of it later, to see all of the detail he does is Amazing.
Overall the Faith Hope mission Craftshow raised More than $2500 to help Those in need in Uganda, and they're wanting me to go there in a few years and teach Leatherworking to the children there, from Hide to finish, it's a really cool thought.
I'll be Bogged down in work for months now, So awesome, and even after that i have the Dog Collar Order to settle, I love this. XD
