Woodworking By the Starrs for almost six years since Dec. 2010 as a weekend hobby.

I started with the Eureka woodworking business almost six years ago in Dec. 2010 as a weekend hobby. Then retiring after forty years of computer repairing and network design in June 2011 I   started building furniture full time.  We (my wife and I) have been a vendor (Woodworking By the Starrs) at a small farmerís market in Vero Beach, Fl., located right at the beach since we started.  The farmers marketís hours are 8:00 to 12:00 every Saturday morning on Ocean Drive.  Sales keep us busy enough that I have very little down time.  We have added garden festivals, plant shows, and craft shows a few at a time until now we do about six or eight a year in several local areas. We have found that shows in the right location and well attended can really produce a lot of sales.  Our best to date have been a two day Spring Fling in the garden festival in Winter Garden Florida in April 2016 where we sold $10,000.00 worth of furniture.  Two weeks later, in a town about 15 miles from Winter Garden we were invited to participate in the weekend Blueberry festival in Mount Dora Florida where once again we sold another $10,000.00. Yes, this business can be successful.  Itís all about building a quality product and getting it in front of people so they can see it, touch it, and sit in it.  Theyíll love it.
