My first show is October 22. I find that Halloween and fall items do not sell well at all. I am just sticking with Christmas items this year.
I have 4 2-day shows in Nov-Dec also.

Have been making my chocolate bars this week-end. I decided I am doing them all at once this year, and not adding more and more as the season goes on. When they are sold, they are sold. I am doing 200 this year. I made that many last year and sold out, so I should be good.

Diane, I'm surprised Halloween items don't do well. I'm doing a three day show the last weekend in October (right before Halloween) and was thinking Halloween items would be a big seller. Do I need to rethink this?

So, you're making 200 chocolate bars will cover your four shows? Do you think 50 might be reasonable for my event? I've never done a show before, so I have no idea how many of each item to make. I'm sure it's a guessing game even with experience, right?
Thanks, Pam

I think it just depends on where you are. My Halloween themed items sold well at my craft show last October.

Thanks, Jenn. Fingers crossed that my Halloween items go. Having leftover candy in my house is a dangerous thing.

this is something i did while i was "cleaning" this weekend... ya know i hit yard sales pretty much all year, and I have something like a dozen big old canning jars filled with vintage buttons, then when my neighbor moved to CA her dd. seen i had picked up one of her containers of buttons and handed me every container of buttons and said take them... so I've had all these other containers of buttons on the closet floor for months, along with a bunch of other things... so yesterday I had found a whole stack of those old jello molds ( I have tons of them) and these were really cheap, so i got the "bright idea" to package some of the buttons ( I kept the ones i wanted most out of these containers and I still have an entire box of them) into the jello molds and made a sign ( for the booth in Nov. ) that reads... "crafters stocking stuffers" I always get some people who stamp, that just want to gossip about stamping and they tell me they are getting tons of ideas from the cards and dont buy anything... but sometimes their husbands come back haha...(or their girlfriends do the next day)
so, I was thinking maybe... if they were cheap enough, also did some vintage lace ( every thing is different no duplicates) of one yard lace the wider pieces are on clothes pins and the skinny is on old empty thread spools ( wood ones )

so, what do you think of this? and what would be a reasonable amount to price them at? ( I did not spend much on the packaging the baggies were bought on clearance (12 bags for 4.00) and the tins were like 20 cents each and the clothes pins are like 20 for a dollar and the spools came in things from yardsales where i bought grab bag type things for the other things in the lot )

Oh and this is held at a private schools fundraiser sale. ( I do it every year and every year is better then the last ) and but, the booth is listed as OOAK cards... so, I dont do any of the packed treat things or altered items or anything like that.

In September of this year I did do a booth at a Renaissance Shrewsbury Renaissance Faire -- Kings Valley - Oregon -- Gates are Open from 10am to 6pm -- September 10th & 11th, 2011 and that was kinda fun, okay a whole lot of fun... and I will probably be doing more of that next year. ( I have all the garb, and just had a small display in my step mom's Baskets booth) photos of the display are in my phone though so have to try to figure out how to get them to the computer. Did about 100.00 for one day. ( didn't stay the second day had to drive home )

Stacy, I used to frequent quilt show and I saw quilters go crazy over vintage buttons and lace. I bought some of both myself. I wish I could give you an idea of what they were selling for, but I just don't retain numbers well. Hope someone here can give you an idea on pricing them. Hoping you do as well with these as the quilt show vendors. Blessings, Pam

Hi Pam,
I sold my Hershey snowmen at $2 each (regular size) and the snak size at 75 cents each or 3/$2. I sold out of all of them and had a special order for 20 moreof the regular size! This year I'm making 60 snak size and 40 of the regular size.
The tic tacs I also sold for $2. Made both the snowman and Grinch pills. I sold more of the snowman tic tacs than the grinch pills, but everyone commented how cute the grinch pills were.
Only doing one fair this year, so not going too crazy.
HTH

Sharon

First off I just want to say I wish I lived closer to you, cuz I would so snap up those buttons! (Do you take PayPal? ha ha ha) They are fantastic and you packaged them up so cute!!!

A package of 100 solid colored plastic buttons that you would find in a scrapbook store sell for around $7.50. A package of 10 Tim Holtz vintage-style buttons retails for $7.

About how many buttons are in each mold? And are they a good mix of plain and ornate? If so, I would not hesitate to price them at $10.

Good luck!

g'morning. ( thanks ) was thinking if they didnt sell at the booth or if there were left overs to stick them in the etsy shop.

I didnt count the buttons I was trying more for mixing the sizes and colors, I was thinking about weighing them on a postal scale. ( could open one up and guesstimate it) think that would be a good thing to list on the back of the tag?

guess i forgot some of the info, ( the buttons were basically free and the lace i tend to buy huge grab bags of it for a dollar or 3 and these are yardage of pieces i have manymanymany yards of) IE this hoarder should be OK with letting these go.

and I am pretty sure the bulk of the buttons are plastic.

My first instinct as a button buyer is no, don't worry about it. when I see bags ect. I just kinda check out what kinda buttons are inside and don't even really think too much of exact amount..
just my 2 cents

Maria - your reindeer test tube is adorable!

Stacy - Lots of people just love buttons, bundling them up to sell is a great idea.

Tat2Girl - on your Hershey bars, when you use the snack size, do you use that same pattern, or is there a smaller size that she offered too? I didn't look before I typed but I remember one for tubes as well as the bigger candy bar. Did you post a picture of your bars anywhere?

Apparently one of my links didn't work for a picture of a pumpkin place setting holder. But I found a different one on a blog this morning, which is actually the one I wanted to show last week but couldn't find. Anyway, here it is:

Krafting Kreations: Pumpkin Card Holder - September Make and Take 5

She also (on the SU! demo only site) posted an apple she had done with a heart punch. I'm assuming she will post that on her blog soon too. The apple was cute, looked real.


Then I saw this amazing rose made with the battery tea lights. Very pretty. uses the ornament punch from SU!.

I just accidentally deleted all my bookmarks....including all sites that had awesome craft fair idea. I'm slowly going back into my history trying to restore some sites.

Does anyone here have the website for the birthday candle...it was one of the little tealite battery powered candles? I believe it was on a SU! demo site.

Tat2Girl - on your Hershey bars, when you use the snack size, do you use that same pattern, or is there a smaller size that she offered too? I didn't look before I typed but I remember one for tubes as well as the bigger candy bar. Did you post a picture of your bars anywhere?
I did use the same pattern, just shrank it down on my copier. I don't remember what percentage I used to shrink it, sorry. I made four copies and taped them to an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper so that I could get 4 snowman from one sheet of paper. If you're good in photo shop (I'm not), you could probably do it a lot easier than the way I did it.
I was the organizer of the craft fair that I made these for last year and have pictures of everyone else's booth, but mine. I'll take and post pics when I get a few made.

I sell the chocolate bars for $2 each and the Snowman Kisses are $3 each (because they take more time to make and cost more for supplies).

Here is a pic of the kisses:

I have mine saved as a jpeg. I just put it into a Word Doc and shrink it to whatever size I want. This way, I have been able to use different shaped chocolate bars.
Sometimes, I will use my daughters fundraiser choc bars which are tall and skinny. My profit is less but she gets her cut from selling the bars.
Hope that helps.

Those are cute. Maybe next year! I get impatient with things having to dry, seal, whatever, and I tend to work on it when its not ready. Maybe because I'm always behind, I don't know. But these will take some planning. But they are cute and different from other bottles I've seen. I'll need to figure out that Cricuit I got for cutting out letters, vinyl - after Christmas that is.

Thanks for the info. I'm not good at doing that on the computer but I'll try to figure it out. And I love your comment about not taking pictures. My first sale I took pictures (at least my sister came by and did it) and then after that, I kept forgetting. Too much to do!

Thanks for that info too. I'll give it a try (or have someone give it a try for me!).

I tried an acrylic frame last night (just one to see if I liked doing it) and that was a fun project. I will be able to get my 4x4 post it note on it and the calendar like I wanted. I'll post them when I get a couple done. Super easy really.

I'm going to do some as dry erase boards too.

I finished up my fall looking candy bags (M&M's, mint patties, and nuggets). Now waiting for Christmas looking candy to come out (well for the MM's at least). Had to get them done because I started eating the stuff. Already dug into the Halloween candy (needed some of it for jars that I was doing) but started eating tha too. Once I alter it, I won't eat it, but until then - I can't stop!! Oh well.

on the mini-candy bar snowmen, what do you do about the hat? I'm thinking you didn't make tiny fleece hats for them, but maybe I'm wrong.

She also (on the SU! demo only site) posted an apple she had done with a heart punch. I'm assuming she will post that on her blog soon too. The apple was cute, looked real.


Then I saw this amazing rose made with the battery tea lights. Very pretty. uses the ornament punch from SU!.

The dollar store has knitted and sometimes fleece gloves. Cut the fingers off and use them for hats, they usually fit the small candy bars.

I sewed tiny fleece hats out of all the extra material I had after I made the big ones. I only fold the material up once, not twice like you do for the big snowman, otherwise you have too much material onto of the candy bar. I fit six snowman on an 8 1/2 by 11" piece of paper. I think they will sell better since the big ones match the little ones!
