a side line venture for the winter months

Postby hughie mackay » Mon Jul 24, 2017 5:23 am

Started a little side line venture with my son in whats called modern rustic. Basically its log type decor items for city folk that never see much except downtown and once in awhile the 'burbs'

Slices of long dead gum trees of who knows what species sanded and oiled, along with candle holders for the tea light type candles. At this point some for retail and some for rental ie weddings and such as we are coming into the wedding season in a couple of months

A little slow at retail as I have been busy doing these for the rental area. We are coming into the wedding season ie spring and summer.
