I got this boring wall clock at Ikea, took out the face and drew my own. It's called Time for Tasty and I want to do a series and sell them at a craft show next year.  But do you think people will like them as much as I do?

i like it alot. i like how professional it looks, and the image. depending on price (of course) i would buy one.
the only thing i could possibly consider not liking is the plastic frame. which i imagine won't bother alot of/ most people. i don't know if other frames are at all an option (what other clocks do ikea have? Wink )?
also, just a thought i had, maybe with brighter colours you'd hit the kids-bedroom market as well as the indie demographic? Smiley

also, did they have little bedside clocks? because it is so hard to get nice bedside clocks. they might be a cool variation on a theme.

It's great! It ought to sell! Did you paint the second hand or was it red already? It's a cool touch.

That style seems to be rather popular, so I'm sure it will sell. It's a really cute clock.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I agree with lupinbunny, I love the face but I'm not too crazy on the frame.  But, yeah, I think it will sell.  It's very cool.

I think it depends on the craft show. I wouldn't count on many sales if it's a family/grandma affair. Too "different".

And, what do people have to match it up with? How 'bout doing a matching pencil holder or whatnot to upgrade the offering?

I agree with craftychef, that you have to be careful of what the craft show you are attending is catering to. This clock is not a grandma clock (though my grandmother is nearly blind and deaf and thought the Will Ferrell movie "Elf" was a good Western, she might buy it) This is for the trendy 18-29 year old.

I also agree with Lupinbunny, that the white on white is a little bland. I would consider painting the frame RED. You can buy spray paint made for plastics at hardware stores. That way you'll get a nice even coat instead of paiting it by hand, which could leave it streaky/lumpy.
