Yesterday I did a craft fair. Unfortunately, I did not take an inventory of how much I brought so I can't tell you exactly how much I sold. This particular craft fair is quite different from all the other ones because you don't collect any money. You have to put special tags with your vendor number on it and your price. Then there is a central checkout where the customers pay for their items. I
n two weeks, I will receive a check for the amount I sold (minus a 10% for the church) and all the tags from the sold projects. So when I get the tags back, I will be able to post specifics for you guys to see. I sold about $300 last year and I am estimating about $400 this year. Last year, I had no competition. However, this year there were 2 other stampers there. Fortunately, we had totally different styles and different products.

Here is my estimation of some things I sold:

Snowman pins made from bottlecaps: sold all 12 @ $1.50 each
Memo cube with matching beaded pen: only sold 1! (these were my best sellers last year!)
Altered Lunch Tins: sold 2 for $20 each
Mini Lunch Tin with cards: sold 1 for $5
Snowman Soup: only sold a few @ $1.50 each. (sold out last year!)
Ghirardellli Chocolate Holders: sold at least 25 @ $3 each
Simple Greeting Cards: approx 25 @ $2 each or3 for $5
Accordian Scrapbooks: sold 10 @ either $12 each or 2 for $20
Altered Composition Books Lg.: sold at least 3 @ $5 ea
Tiny Composition Books with Matching pens: sold 3 @ $5
Beaded Pens: probably sold 8 @ $1.50 each
Magnets: sold 2 @ $2 each (they didn't quite come out the way I wanted, were ugly)
PMS Relief: sold about 10 @ $1 each
Toothfairy Tin: sold 1 @ $4
Candles: sold 0 (leftovers from last year, couldn't give them away!)
Wipe off Memo Board Tiles: Sold 2 @ $8 each
Magnetic Bookmarks: sold 10 @ .75 each
Accordian Tag Book: sold 1 @ $12
Jellybean Instant Breakfast: maybe only sold one or two at $1.50
