Testing the waters…


I have been following a few blogs on Lumberjocks for quite a while now … these blogs are pertaining to the Craft Markets…some are real veterans and have many stories to tell…

Last weekend I was at our local markets chatting with my good mate Ken… from Ken’s Krafts Wedding Wishing Wells… he had a stall there where he sells his wishing wells, cutting boards and lazy Susans.. all of which are made from Camphor Laurel…

A young family came in and admired his lazy susans but wanted something in a darker coloured wood… I said to Ken he could come over and get some timber to make one for them… and showed them a few pics on my iPhone… I just Love my iPhone…. they took one look at  the weave patterned Lazy Larry and ordered it on the spot… from ME   ….  even paying up front… and 50% more than Ken charges for the camphor ones he sells…

I slipped Ken a quick $20.00 as a thank you for using his booth for a few minutes… later we were talking and he suggested I put a few of the fancier LL’s on his stall… so next week on Sunday I will be displaying a few that I have left over from Xmas…

Just a few to test the waters…

If this works out could be a regular thing…who knows…

    Way to go. The more exposure the more chance of a sale, and in this case who can blame people for wanting to buy them, they are exceptional as usual!
