Farmer's Market - Live Woodturning Demonstrations

Well, things are off to a great start for the season at the Ogden Farmers Market. I've brought my lathe out for live turning demonstrations, and the crowds have been great. It's a lot of fun - the fair or carnival-like atmosphere, the people, the sun, and the food.

Liz has put some dresses and tutus together that are adorable - too bad we don't have any girls huh?

My boys think it's a lot of fun. They like to duel with the magic wands, or gunfight with the rubber band guns, which lasts until my 3-yr old starts aiming for faces.... My 5-year old is quite the salesman and will tell whoever will listen about each wand, the prices for the rubber band guns, and the specials on the tutus. Way to go Isaac!

My best sellers so far have definitely been the rubber band guns, followed closely by the wands. What people don't seem to realize is that my bowls, shelves, etc. are priced so much lower than my made-to-order prices on my web page, which are significantly lower than most woodturners out there to begin with.

It's been fun to have my lathe there so I can turn while people watch - makes the wands that much more magical, and I've met a lot of fellow crafters who are interested in woodturning. So be sure to come by and see!
