I did a small market today. I took over 200 cards (non-christmas) and sold none. I sell for $2 each, but they are pretty simple, lightly (& cheaply embellished). My friend took a couple of dozen christmas cards and sold a few. I love to make cards, so I do, but I took a few hundred other items as well. Thank goodness, it only cost us a donated item (voluntarily) to be there, and I made less than $40 (my friend make just over $50). This was a 5 hour day (2 hours of selling time), plus several hours yesterday to sort the goodies and pack my car. Plus all the hours (& dollars) making things. People kept commenting (as always) about how inexpensive our stuff is, and how cute and walk by most of the time. It is our hobby, we do it for fun. However, stalls are hard work and are a drop in the bucket of money incoming versus outgoing. We will NEVER be wealthy crafters!!
