Another Show in the Books

Another show is done, finished, wiped out, caput.  It was a great one, with lots of people and lots of buyers.  I thought I would share a few things from the show.  Sorry for cell phone pics. I did share the booth with an incredibly talented friend, but most things you see in the pictures are mine.

I could have sold this table over and over and over.  Seriously.  Like 5 more tables and benches.  It is a great size for a small spot.  I also made another bar, you can see it tucked in behind the table.  I didn't get any decent pictures of the back, but it has a wine rack, wine glass holders, bottle opener, and liquor shelves like THIS ONE.

The Montana bear was popular and I sold every sign I had except one coffee sign.

These larger sized cut out bears were also a hit.  They are some work--collect the wood, glue it to plywood, nail it with the nail gun, cut out with jigsaw, sand, clear coat.  These are about 30" x 20" in size.

This started out as a table top, but I didn't make the apron big enough to support the legs properly so it became a basketball hoop.  I sold it at the end of the show, for a bit of a discount, but not too much because I would put it up in my house.  It is heavy but French cleats make hanging it easy!

I decoupaged to fence boards a large Library of Congress photo of a Billings (where the show was) parade at the turn of the century.  I also had some cutout fish, I only had one leftover.

And out of two large, full truckloads, this is what I had left to pack up and take to my antique booth.  5 minutes of loading up and I was done!  Another show in the books and time to clean the workshop!
