We survived our first swap meet. Thanks in large part to #1 son who came up to Denton for a week and provided both manpower and supervision on how to set up equipment for such an event. Also, the weather wasn't too hot. I think I have the enthusiasm to try another meet at a different venue toward the end of October. Meanwhile, I am busying myself with catching up on uploading Items to this website AND making the bold step to offer some of my stuff for sale on Ebay. As of this writing, I have ten listings under automotive and home decoration. I sell under the name Eastexburt. (I first went onto Ebay when we lived in Wood County in East Texas) Here is a link: http://www.ebay.com/sch/eastexburt/m.html?item=252407646255&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
I also have continued to acquire old automotive items. This morning I bought my first Pontiac hood ornament. These usually go for hundreds of $$. For some reason one did not sell at $50, and after the sale ended I was able to talk the seller down to $30. I am excited to make a display out of it. I recently did a commission job on two Pontiac hood ornaments. Now I will have my own. I hope to keep more abreast of my production in uploading images of my shop creations to this site.
I am still trying new show venues to find those that provide the most effective exposure for my works.
