Default Finally made a profit today!

Yea! The third craft fair this season was the charm! I made enough to cover my expenses at all three plus about $50 extra. (May not sound like a lot to some---but I'm happy )

What moved: 26 of 28 domino pins/ornaments at $3 each--I'll try to take a pic of what's left but you can also find them in the gallery (where I got the idea!) These were SO easy & cheap to make. I'm going to make tons next year. I got so many compliments on them. The profit margin was HUGE considering the box of 28 cost $3!

10 out of 24 binder photo clips at $2 each. The preteens loved these.

Sold two custom ordered name frames at $25 each.

What did not move---only sold one nine piece nugget box at $5--those were way too much effort. Next time I'm going to do much smaller ones!

Only sold one "Book Buddy" (had bookmark, post-its & pen) at $5--again, probably too much effort. I think next time I might just make a simple bookmark tucked into a card.

I also met a couple of ladies who are interested in a technique club so that was well worth it!
