Mary,
Do you have pics of your coaster calendars.
I did look at your gallery, but can't tell if those are what you mean (ones with bulldog clips).
Do they have magnets on the back? I am trying to figure out how they would stand up?

They are in my gallery, rows 5 and 6 have some. One is with a sewing themed paper for when you look. No they don't have magnets on the back of them. They are 4x4 size, coaster for the front and back the pages (for the calendars) are cardstock with designer paper attached too Calendar from CAT on this site. They are put together with rings at the top - get those at WalMart or office supply store - they come apart like a three ring binder would open. They just stand up on its own.

The coasters with magnets are post it notes for fridges and stuff. Those can also work with calendars, just put the calendar together and adhere to the front of the coaster. Put them together with a brad and then people would just rip off the calendar. I did those last year so if you dig further in my gallery they are there.

Your items are very nice!! I really love the tic tacs and the turkeys. How much are you selling those two items for, if I can ask. I wasn't planning on doing either of them, but maybe if I have time - who knows at this point!

Good luck on your sale!

They go really fast if you cut everything apart first and then assemble. I was able to do all 60 in about 2 1/2 hours.
Wow - those look great!!!! Great tip about the gloves!!!

There was some discussion awhile ago about colored staples. I found at my local Walmart colored staples -- 2000 of one single color on clearance for 50 cents a pack. They were from the school supplies section.

Can someone tell me where to find both large - stick type and regular type/size candy canes. I need these for a craft show and can't find them.

Mary, I'm going to ask $2.50 for the Tic Tacs (same as for Snowman Kisses). I haven't decided about the turkeys. I'm thinking $1 each, although they're worth more for the work I put into them. Any thought on that price for them? Thanks, Pam

This was my question at this time last year! I never did find any stick type candy canes, but the dollar stores near me had regular candy canes way earlier than any other stores.

I bought a bunch of boxes last year for $.25 after Christmas! I toured the Spangler factory, and they said candy canes are good for 2-3 years so I should be all set for awhile

When I did tic tacs last year, I charged about the same. Those aren't cheap to buy in the first place. And for the turkey, that's one reason I'm hesitant about doing them - I'm sure they will sell, especially at $1 - but they look like a lot of time for $1. But then again, I'm selling my tags for $1.50 and they took forever to do, so there you go. As long as you are making money on them, its good

When you're talking about charging $1 for your tags, is that for a set or for one? I'm so new to the craft show game and my first is coming up on Nov 19th. I have to find fast to do, economical money makers. I'm scouring the galleries and getting great ideas but pricing has me stumped.

Thanks for any help!

Help please!
I was asked to provide some items to sell at a school's holiday shop, however, they can only be $1. I've already come up with some ideas (candy sticks, magnets, small post it holders) but am looking for others.
Any help would be appreciated

what kinds of things? does this have to be things for kids to buy to give as gifts?
( does it all have to be handmade? or could you repackage things bought in bulk maybe at a dollar store in a cute way?)

Good ideas Janna...I'm trying to download the snowman wrapper. It can be anything, but I'm thinking they'd prefer items for gifts for family members, friends, etc. She also commented that treats seem to go the fastest

Kids' paperclip bookmarks. I bought some K & Co embellishments and all I had to do was attach a scallop punch behind the paperclip and add a tiny bit of ribbon. I used the large paperclips that come in a box of 100.

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...8&thumbsonly=0

Or, clothespin gift tags that can be clipped on a package. (I also used K & Co. embellishments for these)

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...8&thumbsonly=0

You could also make some tile coasters and sell them individually. You wouldn't see much profit at a dollar, I think that with the felt circles and packaging they would probably cost about .50 each to make.

Anything with a peppermint patty sandwiched in between would make a great item for a $1.

Simple individual holiday cards would probably be a great seller, too.

Dog treat bags.

Another item might be cute matchbook style, simple scratch paper things. I can't find a pic right now, but someone else might have one handy.

All your items are so beautiful! I especially love the Turkey mint favors. Do you mind sharing how much are yuo going to charge for them? I'm planning to make them too and was wondering what's their price point.

Tiffany, someone just reminded me of this cute treat I made a few years ago. They're quick, easy and inexpensive to make:

Thank you! I'm thinking of asking $1 each for them, but that's not much considering the work I put into them. Since I thought these might be used as table favors I wanted them to look good from the back as well, so I stamped the Day of Gratitude, cut it out and then stamped the back side as well - no small task since the stamp had to be inked with markers.

I think people would pay $2 for these.
I have people buy my chocolate bars for place setting add-ons all the time, and they are $2 each. One lady bought 30!

Thanks for your input, Diane. I'd love to think I could get $2 each for them.
Don't you just love customer like that. I have a customer who buys over $70 worth of my cards at one time and she refused any freebies I offer. She says "No" I want to pay you for everything.

I did dog and cat treats, just used cheap biscuits, they sold really well.

I just folded a scrap of card in half, stamped with animal images, and added a decoration. Then just used to top the bags.

Seen notebooks with a pen and a lolly, thought it was a great idea.

Just a thought, have you tried the baby wipe technique? It like making your own stamp pad, which may make the assembly a little quicker for you......Splitcoaststampers - Baby Wipe Technique Tutorial by Beate Johns

Thanks for the suggestion, Stacy. I'll see what kind of results I can get using that technique.

I wanted to share some of the items I've made for shows this year so far. I told myself that I would work all through the year this year so I'm not madly crafting every night come fall. Guess what? I've been madly crafting every night...

Anyway, I've gotten pretty much all of my ideas from SplitCoast; but I didn't keep good enough track to give credit where it's due. So thank you for all the wonderful ideas!!

The Pumpkin Smores have been a surprise this year - I've been selling quite a few of them on Etsy. I didn't really sell many Snowman Smores at shows last year so I've been pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for looking!
Anna

I LOVE those pumpkin smores
I always say the same thing too and end up cramming to get everything done the week of a show.

Quick question; when packaging gift tags, do you do a variety in each pack or 6-10 of the same in a pack? Which sells better?

The ones I sold last year were all the same. But I also had some friends say that they would like to see a variety pack as well

I have some pictures of some of the tags I did for the sale in my gallery. I am packaging them with 15 in a bag, $1.50 per bag. I may go to $2 on them but I'm not sure.

What am I doing wrong? Has anyone experienced this....I had a show yesterday...first one of the season....there were 2 other papercrafters at the show...I came in and set up. One of them had a number of other types of crafts (toll painting, sewing, etc) but had a lot of the same type of things, the other had A LOT of the same things I had... I must have had 50 people stop by my table, pick up many things, exclaim how beautiful/cute the items were and then just walk away, buying NOTHING! I sold $6 in 5 hours. Paid $30 for the table. Now, I know, from talking to a few other vendors this show was not good for them either....but, I wondered, what would you do if you noticed, after you walked away from the table and left your teen in charge, that one of the others that had a papercrafting table came over and started asking all kinds of questions about the products you were selling...am I reading too much into this?
