    new one for me...

    of all the funny things that have happened this year, this is a good one. i have been invited to be at a holiday boutique held at someone's home (in their 3.5 car garage to be exact). she said that she had seen my stuff at the last craft show, and decided to invite me on board. it runs this thursday, friday, saturday, and next thursday, friday, and saturday. the tab for all 6 days is only $35. this will keep me out of mischief for the next couple of weeks, with a week off before the last one i do in december. here are pics of the setup.

    That's a heck of deal Dan...I hope you sell out!! Although if you have another show coming up...maybe not everything.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    sounds like a good deal but do you think she can funnel enough people into her garage to make it worth your time to sit there for 3 days each weekend?

    she's been at this for 15 years now allen, and the area they live in, right on the lake, in what i would consider a big money neighborhood (neighbourhood that is). we shall see what we shall see.

    Looks like a good setup Dan.

    Hope it goes well, and you might drum up some business installing crown moulding in some of the neigbors houses if you do that kind of thing?

    Quick easy money, and a lot of upscale house owners like those kinds of things.
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    How do you catch your customers at such a unique holiday boutique?

    Unique up on them...you'll do just fine.
