So prices - can you share - what you sold the little frames and candies for (your mints and nuggets had more in them than mine did). My pretzel bags had a flap on them (which the previous ones didn't) so I lost some space there.
I had pretty much everything priced at around $3.
Acrylic frames $3 each- I sold about 3 this way (I had 15), then at the end of the first day, a lady was wanting to buy up the rest for her nurse co-workers so I did 2 for $5 on the remaining ones so that she could get cute, inexpensive gifts for them. the frames are 50 cents each (with tax included) at Walmart, and the gel pens I got at Staples when they had them $2 for a box of 12. Got 2 boxes of them (that was the limit), so I only have 9 pens left. The regular $5 price is too steep for me! LOL
Peppermint Patty and Hershey mini bar treat bags were $3 each or 4 for $10. Mostly sold them that way and I allowed people to mix and match all my $3 candy/food treats as 4 for $10. They loved this so they didnt have to just get 4 of the same thing. I have 5 patties and 7 mini candy bars in the bag. I also did a 2 pack of the mini candy bars for $1 each or 3 for $2.50. I'm going to change that up a bit since I am doing PP 2 pack treats like a snowman and I am going to do 3 mini bars this time....both of those will be $1.50 each or 4 for $5. Still keeping the full sized packs tho...just like to offer a bit cheaper version for those that have to buy a small gift for a ton of people.
