After the craft show

We made it through the craft show and I guess we did OK. We didn't sell a lot but we did have some sales so it wasn't a complete bust. I really think the weather and the economy were working against us, it was cool and we mostly ended up with scattered rain showers and lots of lookers. Hopefully next year will be better, and on the plus side I have a lot of cuffs and key fobs to list.

One of the things that really worked at the show was the display rack E made for the cuffs:

It still needs a bit of tweaking to get it just right but it worked perfectly. It was pretty simple to build too, 2" by 1" pine board, some screws to attach it all and small hinges to attach the legs. Once E is done making a few changed I'm going to stain and seal it.
This is the rest of my display:

The baskets worked well for everything except the key fobs, they really needed to be out and visible so E is working out a display for them too. It will be similar to the cuff rack but will have hooks to hand the fobs.
