The Need For Magic   Leave a comment

Mr-Ms-Logo---LargeWe had a pair of good events last week … and my inventory of Magic Bottle Openers took a hit. After selling 17 bottle openers in 4 days (!), my inventory was down to 9. Nine! That’s hardly enough for a good event this weekend, much less the 6 events remaining this year.

Luckily, I had begun the work on a big batch of MBOs, as I call them, several days ago, and I had 60 more in the pipeline that is the chaos of my garage woodshop. I hurriedly moved those 60 along this week, and 20 made it to the finish line. That takes the inventory up to a respectable level for an event. Or two. By then, however, I’m going to need to have more MBOs. Good thing I have 40 more to finish!

In my spare time.

Oh, and I ordered $400 worth of magic this week (!), so you know that more of these will be coming.

When I get to it.

With my inventory dipping perilously low this week, I convinced Mrs M to give me a day off of booth duty this weekend so that I could stay home and get to making. I’ve got special orders due by Thanksgiving, I’ve got a cutting board deficit for upcoming events … and I’ve got a woodshop full of lumber to be made into something much prettier.

Sounds like a lovely weekend to me!

For the explanations of why these bottle openers are magic – and more pictures! – go here. All of these MBOs are approximately 5″ x 11″ x 3/4″. Pricing is simple: $35 for single magic models (wall mount), and $45 for double magic (fridge mount).
