A Word About Flea Markets

We have tried out the local flea markets to get our craft products out in the public and increase our customer base. Flea Markets are an inexpensive way to perfect your showcasing skills. You want to present your project in a pleasing way and with selling anything you want your customers to stop and browse.

Updated Website

Hey gang, we are in the process of updating the website and including information from other sources such as other websites, youtube vidoes, and even included a page called the SWC Store with items from Amazon that we believe you will find useful in your own crafting projects.

We are not looking to become rich only to share with our readers some of the projects we have done, some how-to’s for yourself and then make a little money to support our own projects.
