Re: First show...Yowzza
Congratulations on your show and sale. I wish you much more success. I've just pulled all of my wood carvings (kitchen prep spoons & forks) out of the two shops marketing them. Sales were poor and the entire exercise was intended to last just 12 months before review. Next is to interact with the summer tourists directly in Farmers' Markets and try a Christmas craft fair.
Local contractor used his kid (10?) to excavate with the backhoe after school & weekends. The kid claims that there never was a video game to match what he was doing for real.
