Are you all wondering about how we did at the Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Festival?
This was while we were working on getting everything set up
Saturday was pretty cold and there was a rather strong wind blowing through the building all day long. A very small crowd was there and even though I did sell some stuff it wasn't much.
Sunday the weather was much better but the attendance was worse. I wouldn't say it was a total waste though, it gave me something to do and I met some new people.
A few new items I made for this show.
These scarecrows are made from 5 gallon paint sticks. I had three of these priced at $6 and didn't sell a single one. I'm planning on making some snowmen like this as well.
This item was made from leftover deck wood. The word "FALL" was stenciled on using a technique I learned from Beverly at Eclectic Red Barn. Sorry but I don't have the link to the exact post for that. The candle is a battery operated one that I grunged up with mod podge and cinnamon. This didn't sell either.
This item priced at $7 did sell though. It was a brown wood rocking chair that I had purchased at a thrift store. It was roughly 7" high. I painted it black, glued on some spanish moss, added a fall pick and some plastic pumpkins
So what was the big seller of the day? It was my 25 cent marble magnets.
