Great thread! I had my 1st craft fair last Friday. I only had a little over a week to get ready so I didn't have a whole lot. I did pretty good though. I only had one small table and made $90. Now I'm working on the next one which is a Christmas Bazaar next month. I know now to focus more on journals, notebooks, bookmarkers and other gift items. I only sold 2 cards but got 2 orders for Christmas cards.

So for things like Snowman Soup and other treat type gifts, what size bags do you use? I know the packaging really makes a difference.

Can we also start a list of items with prices? I know they vary depending on the area. I live in a small area. I had $2.50 on my cards and I'm thinking that might have been too high. I only had $3 on my journals, $2.50 on the junior legal pads, $1.50 on the post it note holders and 50 cents on the bookmarkers. I'm wondering if I shorted myself.

Looking forward to getting more ideas from you ladies...
