Starting a business in December can be quite challenging as the holidays are typically a very busy time thereby making it difficult to touch on the many business related tasks that may be needed to start generating sales. We decided to stay away from online sales, and related shipping processes, to instead focus our attention on a few local vendor shows in our area. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of items we sold and also at the amount of custom orders that flowed in immediately following each event. Below are some images of items we created, and also some of the custom orders we filled for our new customers. We have a very limited supply of holiday items remaining to be sold and we have recently listed them on facebook marketplace in hopes of making a few local sales here in Land O’ Lakes, FL. We still have a few custom orders to fill and then it is time to focus efforts on getting my online storefront up and running while continuing to make unique pieces on our CNC machine and 3D printers.
