The big show season is over for the year, just finished the Corvallis Fall Festival. It was beautiful weather and lots of warm, funny people came out for the event. I was disappointed with my sales, but after 5 years, maybe I need to take a break from this show.
With only a handful of regular Saturday market days left, I am gearing up for the Holiday market. Lots of Christmas ornaments, bottle stoppers and small boxes. I like these items, because each one is a little different, and I don’t get into a rut of routine.
I am already looking toward items for next year, more pieces with decoration such as pyrography and metal leaf, and lots of carving. Expect more art work and fewer functional items, altho bowls will always be one of my mainstays.
