Sorry for not keeping up with the blog like I should, but we have been very busy lately!
We got accepted into the Grand Central Holiday Fair in NYC. Only 40 artisans were accepted from the hundreds of applicants! The Holiday Fair opens November 13th and runs thru December 24th. That’s right 42 straight days from 10 AM till 8 PM every day! Needless to say, I have been a very busy boy making LOTS and LOTS of pens for this show. In between making all these pens, I’ve been attending other shows, and will be a presenter at two upcoming woodturning symposiums.
So, in my *spare* time, I just want to share some of the more popular pens that have been selling very well for me at these craft shows.
|Sierra Grip/Gatsby type of pens always perform well made with either acrylic or stabilized wood.|
|Steam Punk pen. Always a popular seller with it’s mix of metals and intricate design.|
|Because of the popularity of “Game of Thrones”, the Dragon pen has been selling very well.|
|The Venetian pen has been very popular for the people who wanted a rollerball / fountain style pen.|
I promise I won’t take this long to keep you updated!
– Happy Turning
