    Art Gallery Display

    Well the director of the Art Gallery came by today with the last check from Christmas sales at the Art Gallery. For the month of November and December I made $1483 in sales after they took there 30% commission. She said she sold all my mini birdhouses. So all in all I am quite happy. She also wanted to know if she could display my turnings for the year. I told her absolutely. I need to turn a bunch of bottle stoppers as she said she is down to one. I also need to take down a cheese platter, some potpourri pots, lidded vases, confetti lamps, and lidded boxes. She said both cheese platters sold and all but one of the others.

    Sooooooo guess I had better get to the shop and make some chips fly.

    I am sooooooo happy for you Bernie!

    It will be nice to work on the lathe without worrying about how to sell them!
