Craft Show Success

Well, the weather was beautiful for the craft show (can you believe it - because they were calling for rain!) As a matter of fact by the afternoon it was sunny and hot! Lots of people! My biggest selling item this time was the birthday calendars. Here is a sample of one of the birthday book calendars. Each book has a different cover. I just made the inside part (the lines) on my computer. The variety pack cards did very well, also. I almost sold out of those (a variety pack is 10 different cards for $10.00). I have seen a lot of forums asking about selling cards (like on Split Coast) like how much to ask for each card, but the key for me is not the money - I love the fact that people like my cards and I just want to share them with others! (Other people selling their cards seem to do it more for the money; like $3.00 up to $5.00 a card). Well, the money is nice, but I just stick it back into stamping!

LOL! Well, three to five might be 'for the money' - but sounds to me a buck a card would be LOSING money! Boy would I love to run into you at a craft fair! ;)

I'm wondering how much you charged for your birthday calendars. I'd love to have one, would you be willing to make one and ship it to me if I paid you? If so let me know how much.

Good for you! I agree that doing it for fun and having people enjoy and be able to pick up some cards is a thrill in itself. Probably one of the reaons I'll never be that kind of rich$$$ lol But we can be "wealthy" in other ways.
