Tailgate Market July 28

I decided I'd pack up a new set of pots for this week.


Every week if I take different things, maybe I'll sell some that nobody had seen before.

At least I'll be able to talk about new/different things.


But there aren't that many people who see them, so I know this is all wishful thinking.



If wishes were horses...



I have to think hard what I want to pack up.




Last week I sold a pot that had been pit-fired.  So I'm taking another one this week.
What can fit in the bin and be safe?  And will I have to pack them all up and bring them home at the end of the market?  Yes, all the above pots, and a few more that were small, did fit in the bin this week.


I haven't been doing craft fairs for the last couple of decades, while I was working one of those 8-5 jobs.  I dearly love to visit them, and usually come home with ...what else, a pot.  I have always believed in supporting what I admire, so the art of pottery will continue.  Though, come to think of it, I think I'm doing more than my share these days!

  1. It's so hard to think about what pots go to a show and what pots stay home. Thinking about which ones will survive the trip is always a smart idea. Good luck at the show.

  2. Oh I really like that tile and the curved landscape looking vase very cool and your flower votives or mini bird baths? A while ago I was making floral bowls but drifted into other work. I should think folks would love these pieces as they are all unique. Good luck at the show; my farmer's market is next Friday and then Saturday we might have a yard sale depending upon the weather.

  3. Lovely pieces Barb! I especially love the little votive holders...the flowery ones! I was told to make what I love and not necessarily what I think people will love! Keep on potting and remember it only takes one person to love a piece!
