I'd give it a try. Since the end of school year is not that far off I am sure that the cards would go well as people always are looking for teachers gifts

I've sold altered paint cans at craft shows.

We did well selling the big ones for $15.00 and the small ones for $10.

We didn't have anything inside, but we did tie ribbons on the handle and included the paint key.

I did a spring boutique and brought Nugget Tins ($4.99) and Easter M&M Jars ($1.50) Both sold very well and both can be adapted to any season. Here are links to my blog for these two:

http://stamp2stamp2.blogspot.com/200...andy-jars.html

http://stamp2stamp2.blogspot.com/200...gget-tins.html


For my fall craft fairs I want to do some of the 3x3 cards in little purses too but haven't settled on a price.

Here is a paint can I made that I plan to sell. I made the paw border and title with my cutter.

Hey there....has anyone ever done summer festivals? I'm wondering what would be good sellers, since I probably don't want to do anything with chocolate due to the heat.
Any ideas, please post them here

THanks!

No, I don't have pictures. I am still working on my samples. I started my samples this past weekend but right now I am not in the right frame of mind to finish this week due to my BF passing away yesterday. So, hopefully this weekend I can get some complete. I will post pictures when I complete a couple.
Hi Robin, just a note to see how you are doing after your loss... Thinking of you!

Hello friends! I am always checking this thread for ideas, and now I have a new one. I made some wine charms out of polyshrink last weekend. I have a friend who owns a lingerie store and she sold them all in two days. They were so easy to make. I sold them for $2 each or six for $10. She said people were asking when she would have more in. She has had coasters of mine for sale there too. Had only sold a few sets until this week. The matched some of the charms. Now, she wants matching cards too. It might be a good idea to sell these in sets, coasters, wine charms, and a matching card. I just thought I would share!

Thanks for posting that link. I made some really cute ones with Changito monkeys and lingerie stamps, but the pictures came out blurry. I put little beads on the rings after I took the pictures.

Thanks so much for the link! These are adorable! I will be adding these to my table next fair season! This is such a great thread. I did my first 2 fairs last fall/winter with modest success but it was fun and I'm stamping anyway, right

Default Craft Fair Items

I have to add: I took 45 paper clip bookmarks, the 4 inch ones, and sold out! I charged $3.00. Some had the paper ideas like here in the gallery, and others I used expoy stickers, and even small silk flowers!

I was able to find boy epoxy stickers, like football, baseball etc. These went first! Everyone was wanting smething for the boys!

Good luck. I am making 100 more for the event in April.

Yes, shrinky dinks are what you need for the charms.

Has anyone had any luck selling kids coloring cards? I made a bunch for an upcoming sale, but not sure what I should charge for them. I was thinking $1 ea.
For summer, I would suggest fourth of July themes, picnic themes, BBQ themes.
Cards, altered items, etc. I think you just need to change the theme of your things to the season. That's what I've always done. I am trying to figure out some iced tea kits for summer this year. Maybe some cards with flower seeds for spring.

I made/took 5 explosion/squash books to the fair I did in early December 2007. I had one open with the photos in it so people would know what to do with it. I demo'd it countless times but not one book sold. Everybody was amazed but nobody bought

I have my first on May 21st! I am doing the nuggets, but will use tins to put notecards in too. I am making a bunch of the small note cards that SU makes. I am trying to decide how many to put in a tin and for how much.

Suggestions anyone?

I also think the cards would be a great a idea.
Also you can make mini survival kits . Teachers kits, headache kits , babysitting kits stuff like that.go into here and check them out. You can modify them if you want or customize it for someone.

http://www.sawyers-specialties.com/survival-kits/

Hard candy works as well.
wine charms.

I was thinking 8 cards and the tin for $16.00. The cards were just under 1.00 to make and the tin cost me 1.20 each.

Too high? Too low? UGH!!!! This has been driving me nuts.
