As I've said before, I've been appearing at the local Farmer's Market. (Perhaps "appearing" isn't the correct word... it makes it sound like I'm performing there.)
Anyway, a great baker there named Vicky needed some new signs for her display.
I used pine and made a frame similar to the blackboard frames I made here. Each frame piece has a groove cut into the inner edges that fits the whiteboard. You can buy whiteboard at most DIY type building stores.
She needed the signs to stand, so I put a cross piece on the back with a small hinge to another "leg" piece.
This probably shows it better:
A small chain keeps the leg from going out too far. I painted "Vicky's Bakery" and a small drawing of a rolling pin, canister, pastry and pie:
I made two signs, one is used for bread (this is Vicky's mom sitting behind it and delicious bread in front)
The second sign is the same width but longer (this is Vicky and her brother with her boxes of pies for sale)
When she sells out of a particular type of pie or bread, she wipes that one off her list. Vicky often sells out or leaves the market with very few products left.
Any weight gain I get over the next few weeks will be blamed on Vicky, her pies are delicious, last week I brought home an apple AND a blueberry... YUMMY!
