I had my one and only show this past weekend and I was very pleased with the sales. I made a variety of papercrafted items, as well as some recycled/repurposed items. This is the first year in about 5 that I basically sold out of almost everything, so I am ecstatic with the results. Here is what I did:
Lightbulb snowmen made 12, sold 12
Lightbulb penguins made 12, sold 12
snowman and santa wrapped chocolate bars made 48, sold 48
sets of 6 Christmas cards made 13, sold 10
altered pringles cans made 24, sold 24
tea bag and hot chocolate holders made 24 (12 each), sold 24
decorated boxes with 24 gift tags made 7, sold 7 (boxes were either the Laughing Cow cheese containers or the boxes that your cheques from the bank come in)
loose large cards made 10 sold 6
loose small cards made 28, sold 13
loose gift tags made 60, sold 34
dry-erase acrylic frames made 2, sold 2
post-it note frame had 1 leftover from last year, sold it
covered journals with matching pens made 12, sold 12
wine cards gift box - 6 wine themed cards plus handcrafted cork made 1, sold one
Basically, all I am left with is loose cards, boxes of Christmas cards and christmas gift tags, all of which I can use for myself. It was a fundraiser, and I provided $634 of products to sell, and generated sales of $565. I also have requests for 4 sets of cards and two light bulb penguins.
Happy crafting everyone!
Hand over the chocolate, and no one will get hurt!
