What’s Up

37th Annual Orange Park Fall Festival Sat-Sun 19-20 Oct 10 AM-5PM

Ok folks it is that time…  The 37th Annual Orange Park Fall Festival is taking place this Saturday and Sunday, Oct 19 and 20, 2019 from 10 AM to 5 PM…

While the weather does not look promising for Saturday all of the Vendors will be there so if you feel like braving the elements (maybe it won’t be as bad as they are saying?) you will have the best pickins, cause there won’t be a lot of folks 😉

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.  Over 200 Vendors, about 20 Food vendors and all sorts of Kids activities.

Check out the vendors here!

Whether you come out and brave the elements on Saturday or come on Sunday make sure you stop by Booth #131 JaxWhirligigs, Selene and I will be all day long 😉   AND make sure to Vote for Peoples Choice and choose JaxWhirligigs :)))

See ya this weekend,
Bob & Selene

The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market will be held this Sunday, September 01, 2019 from 10 AM to 3 PM.  Due to the weather there may be fewer vendors but JaxWhirligigs will be there…

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 🙂

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

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

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.  So mark your calendar now and plan on being there on Sunday Sep 1.

Also for those of you that are not local to us we are updating our Schedule Calendar as soon as we have confirmation of shows and you can check it for shows closer to you, just check back frequently to see new dates as they get added.

Hope to see you all soon 🙂

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 🙂

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…  This is a $30.00 Whirligig

Next up is our Dueling Cats.. Cute and a little different 🙂  This is a $40.00 Whirligig…  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 🙂

Now for the unfortunate news…   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.  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.  Effective immediately our prices have been updated on our web site to reflect the new prices, our Whirligigs now Start at $15.00…  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.  Keep checking for the next New Whirligig and we hope to see you all this September 😉

Thanks for your continued support,
Bob & Selene

Summertime at JaxWhirligigs

It’s been a little over 3 weeks since the final Craft Show of last season and Selene and I have been hard at work building Whirligigs.  We have been concentrating on replacing those Whirligigs that we were out of stock of at the end of the season, as well as some custom orders and maybe a few New Whirligigs 😉

We just finished some custom Football Players that folks have been waiting for.

I mentioned some New Whirligigs and I can promise at least 3 new Whirligigs we will be adding this summer, possibly more, however we will wait for another post before I post the details of those new Whirligigs 🙂

We also created Custom Whirligigs for a fellow vendor, and hopefully when you see these Whirligigs you will stop and check this vendor out 😉

Ugly Flying Pigs

Ok that is it for now, but we will post more about our New Whirligigs and let you know as we add some Whirligigs that have been out of stock recently.

Stop back soon,
Bob & Selene

Final Craft Show for 2018-2019 Season

This Sunday Selene and I will be at The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market for our final craft show for the 2018-2019 season,  Jun 16, 2019 from 10 AM to 3 PM…  The weather is looking pretty good so no excuse for one last trip to The Market 🙂

We will have our newest Whirligigs with us, the Small Turtle and Frog, they are just $15.00 each, as well as a really good selection of our other 70+ Whirligig Designs…

Below are pictures of our Large and Small Frogs and Turtles.

Selene and I have had an absolutely wonderful Season and we are already working towards the next Craft Season, which starts in September.  We will be posting our schedule for next year in the next few weeks and probably announcing some new Whirligigs over the summer building season 😉

If you are looking for a special Whirligig, or some special colors for one of our existing Whirligigs, the summer is the best time for special orders as all I will be doing is Building, Building and Building Whirligigs 🙂

We really hope to see you this Sunday to say Thanks for a Wonderful Season,
Bob and Selene

Busy Weekend, Saturday Jun 1, 2019 and Sunday Jun 2, 2019 AND 2 New Whirligigs :)

We have been working hard the last three weeks to get ready for this weekend.   First UP we will be at the 26th Annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival on Saturday, Jun 1, 2019 from 7 AM (OMG yes 7 AM) to 3 PM.   We were last in Wellborn 3 years ago and our schedule just hasn’t allowed us to return but this year I said we are going H*** or High Water and we are looking forward to it.

Then on Sunday we will be at The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market along with about 100 other vendors.  This is the next to last Market for this season so you need to get out and join us on Sunday, Jun 2, 2019, from 10 AM to 3 PM.

I did mention something about NEW Whirligigs in the Title of this post and we won’t disappoint…

We have two New $15.00 Whirligigs, we will have a couple of each, each day this weekend, so you folks in Orange Park will get to see them too…   Oh what are they, well they are smaller versions of two of our current Whirligigs.  We have two Whirligigs that a number of folks would like to have however they considered them too big for their yard or too big for where they wanted to put them so we shrunk our Frog and Turtle Whirligigs down to a $15.00 size 🙂  I don’t have pictures of them yet as I just finished making them yesterday and then had to pack them for the shows, but they are CUTE!

Hope to see you either in Wellborn or in Orange Park this weekend,
Bob & Selene
