Virtual Craft Show?

MikeToddMikeTodd IndianaPosts: 970 ✭✭✭✭✭
Hey All! So I was driving around today and saw a few signs for some local craft shows. It got me thinking, we have so many talented artist, artisans and craftsman here in our community, why not have a virtual craft show? I know that my family and I love getting and making/giving homemade items and we do a lot of our Christmas shopping at craft shows. Would there be any interest? Obviously certain laws will apply but if someone is making custom herfadors and they happen to be filled with home rolled cigars that is just a perk right? 
So I am gauging interest. Anyone want to participate as buyers or sellers? Let me know and if we get enough interest, I will start a new thread and get it organized.

    Great idea @MikeTodd, we do have some crafty dudes on here. I would fall under the buyer side, the only craftiness I perform is in the dirt

    Love the idea,  I'm not a crafty type of guy myself but I think it would be cool.

    As long as Marty puts up some of his ash trays I'm in.

    I've often wished some of these home rollers would sell me a ziplock bag.

    Thanks, guys. Unfortunately I don't have anything in sellable condition that I'd part with. I looked yesterday and I have three blanks prepared for the lathe - one of which I had previously started turning - but I don't have the stamina to stand in front of the lathe or the router table long enough to complete any of these pieces. 

    But thanks for the generous compliments. Now my head is all swelled up.....  :p

    Marty, 
    Do you do anything with Myrtlewood?
    We stop at a Myrtlewood place down the coast quite often and they have blanks they sell.

    Maybe with your lighter swelled up head supporting your body, your stamina will increase. :D

    I'll set the bar low here so everyone else won't hesitate to post their work, a tribute to DZR I did up for the Reno Herf crew. Wish you were there Daniel.

    How are those letters applied? Can you put most anything on there? How much does a hat cost? Got colors?

    I used some puffy fabric paint that you squeeze while drawing or writing and picked up the caps from Daiso in bulk, I think I liked the green hat with gold letters the best.
