Now a large warehouse isn't a half bad idea! Think about several
years' production gradually filling shelves, until you hire a personable
aftershool person to be there for an hour and a half fixed afternoons to
sell and pack pots from that "Barnfull of Pots" that word spreads quickly
about in the newspaper, TV reporter visits, and Sunset magazine, etc. ie:
"Hey, there's this crazy potter who has a Barnfull of Pots!" I visited Suzy
Atkins at the Poterie du Don in France, who does just that, with a poster
in every public place within 100Km; but David Stannard is the first who
suggested it to me. Think about it, Hank in Eugene
