Sunday however the weather looks almost perfect, low to mid 80’s and Partly Sunny all day long with no rain forecast and should be a banner day at the Fall Festival.ย  Over 200 Vendors, about 20 Food vendors and all sorts of Kids activities.

The weather forecast isn’t bad at all and may improve more between now and Sunday so why not take a little time out from preparing for Dorian and stop by Sunday between 10 AM and 3 PM….

Our Newest Whirligig, and Upcoming Craft Season!

I mentioned we had at least one more New Whirligig for this upcoming season and finally here it is ๐Ÿ™‚

A $15.00 Whirligig, it is 9 1/2โ€ณ Long with a 12โ€ณ Wingspan and is our Small Flying Pig!

So now, if you like Pigs you have not 1, not 2 but 3 choices…ย  ย Our New Small Flying Pig, Our Large Flying Pig and Our Original Cute Pig ๐Ÿ™‚

The 2019-2020 Craft Season is only 15 days away and we start right on the 1st of September at The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market, from 10 AM to 3 PM along with 100 other hand crafted Vendors.ย  So mark your calendar now and plan on being there on Sunday Sep 1.

Hope to see you all soon ๐Ÿ™‚

New Whirligigs & Sadly Price Changes :(

As I mentioned in my last post we will have some New Whirligigs this season and two of them are ready now ๐Ÿ™‚

First Up is a request we had from last season for a Larger Canoe, so we now have a Canoe with Indian Chief, the canoe is 17 1/2 inches long with 14 Inch paddles…ย  This is a $30.00 Whirligig

Next up is our Dueling Cats.. Cute and a little different ๐Ÿ™‚ย  This is a $40.00 Whirligig…ย  13 inches long and 8 1/2 inches tall…

We will have At Least one more Whirligig before the new season, and that one will be a $15.00 Whirligig and we hope to have them done soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the unfortunate news…ย  ย Selene and I have been selling our Whirligigs for 5 years and one of the most important aspects for me has been our $10.00 Whirligigs.ย  An inexpensive way for almost anyone to be able to enjoy their own Whirligig…

However due to rising costs of materials since we started, costs have been creeping up every year, and then some recent unexpected increases in our nylon parts we simply cannot continue to sell $10.00 Whirligigs.ย  Effective immediately our prices have been updated on our web site to reflect the new prices, our Whirligigs now Start at $15.00…ย  The plus side of this is all new Whirligigs are built with Brass Screws which will hold up better in our Florida Weather.

We are looking forward to the new Craft Season starting in September, only about 6 weeks to go.ย  Keep checking for the next New Whirligig and we hope to see you all this September ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for your continued support,
Bob & Selene
