I was wondering, how do some of you go about getting new business.
I'm talking about selling your turnings. Over the years, I have developed a few friends that require my turnings from time to time. These turnings will be shown at model homes that are for sale in new additions, or open houses that are on the market. These people are Real Estate Sales Persons and Furniture Stores that supply furniture to the Real Estate people. After probably 6 months, the lady from the furniture store called yesterday and wanted 3 new pieces. She had sold 2 of the pieces that she had in her store, (I forgot all about them) and she wanted to come out and talk about what she wanted. I spent all day today with her watching over my shoulder as I turned. What a PITA, but the money is good. I will try to finish them tomorrow and with any luck she won't be here. I will try to post pics.
I thought I would share this with you guys, you never know who will buy your turnings.
