We found a old bit of wood and had soon jig sawed it to the right size. Then got a long bit of wood, sawed it in half and the 2 lengths became the 'posts' for the sign. A bit of hammering to join the posts to the sign part and it was done. All that was left was for me to paint it with blackboard paint and let it dry overnight.
This morning I got out my trusty chalks and scribbled out a sign. We put it down on the verge just outside the house and I crossed my fingers.
Then I went out for the afternoon.
When I got back Lloyd had sold some eggs!! Whooohooo. The sign worked.
Here's both sides of it. ( yes, an artist, I am not.)
And with it just being chalk I can change things. Like if the price goes down all I do is rub the old one out! Or in the summertime when the veggie garden is going strong ( here's hoping this year is better than last year) I can add things to it like, courgettes and tomatoes?
It's 2 days since the sign has been out. Yesterday Lloyd sold some and today I have sold 4 dozen! I am cleaned out! Will have to make a quickie sold out sign - or one that says sold out, more tomorrow!
wowser! That's the chook food paid for for 2 weeks :)
