I am going to be up so late tonight, too busy browsing all of the new braniac pottery advise on this forum since I was here last, to make product!
Understood, Chris. Looking around at the offerings at farmers' markets and the craft/consignment shop I realized that there was nothing that had the town's names on it, anywhere to be had, so I thought that might imply some untapped potential. In these two towns, if you're a tourist it's a gas station t-shirt or it's no keepsake or souvenir at all.
On Old Home Days the town gets pretty hopping & everybody seems excited to be there, I'll try a town branded item one time, it wouldn't be the first silly or outrageous product that I've tried to sell. I've boxes of them .
Then again, some of the most ridiculous stuff, does sell! Or the other side, someone comes up agitated, grabs a few pieces up and looks them over very closely, angrily, slams them down and storms off in a huff. And they are my best selling pieces.
How's about this - here's a pic of my tent from a few weeks ago. There's some rough pieces in there I know, I have another table that's not in the pic.
If anyone would like to constructively help to dial me in a bit, I am open to that. What sells at farmers' market besides pigs & mugs?
P.S. whoops perhaps I should have put this thought in another forum area, apologies if so.
