Be interesting to see what happens as Christmas gets closer, will sales of the more expensive items go up or will the cheaper iteems sell better....or maybe nothing will sell because everyone is skint and doing their shopping in Poundland :-(

Also had a surprise sale via Etsy. That's two in the last three days. Things are looking up. I've been going into the chat rooms and forum on Etsy and I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
Picture of tops as promised

6" long and about 5mm thick, made of Pittisporum. Pretty little platter.
More tomorrow hopefully
I have these three Native american style pots in beech on my Etsy site (http://www.bodrighy.etsy.com/) retailing at $35 each. For a limited period of two weeks, ending 30th of September (midnight GMT) I am offering them as a set for $100 inclusive of postage. Full details of the pots can be seen on Etsy. This is only because I need to try and cut back on some of my stock due to gentle hints from my better half about the amount of dusting involved.
Thanks for looking.

I have just foubnd out about a once a month all day craft market in Truro's Hall for Cornwall so I am going to go for it. A 6' table with elctrics from 9 - 4 for a tenner can't be bad and if I can get it going ready for Christmas then maybe I can earn a bit to get a new decent sized lathe. Or maybe some Christmnas presents. Better still get the lathe and make some Christmas presents.
Sales on Etsy are very slow but apparently it is the same for a lot of people not just me. Looking at the sales that others have hgad and I'm not so bad.
I will need to revamp my stock and get a load of smaller things done for the stall. Also make sure that I have got enough bigger pieces ready for the exhibition in Novemeber. Thought this was supposed to be a hobby. If I could earn enough it could easily be a full time job.

Everyone seems to think that having blogs is a good way to promote work so here goes.
I turn wood that I find, scrounge or recycle and hopefully make useful and decorative items. Sometimes it's one or the other sometimes both. My work can be seen at www.bodrighy.co.uk or at www.bodrighy.etsy.com. I also do commissioned work and some of the things that I have up for sale are only done this way as they are personalised or perhaps not really the sort of thing that I would keep in stock. Please feel free to look and comment either positively or negatively but if the latter please make the critique helpful and not just 'I don't like that.' I am also open to suggestions and if there is something that you would like made get back to me and I will let you know ASAP whether it is something that I can do for you. There is a contact form on my website or on Etsy a link to communicate.
Hope you like some of what I do and I hear from you soon.
