We saw some people walking around the craft fair last weekend with these big gaudy wooden stars, ornaments, signs… you name it and can’t believe that stuff sold. They’re made out of what looks like pallet wood that has been sitting in the weather for years with splotchy paint thrown on top of it. I couldn’t bring myself to try to sell something like that.
I lowered my prices some and I guess it helped some. My biggest attraction was the US quarters map I made. I’m thinking of making similar things for the other continent. I’ll use the CNC to vcarve the internal borders rather than use a scroll saw to cut and then re-assemble. I ordered some bags of foreign coins and will sell those with it so I know how big to make the holes for each country.
