Default Christmas Boutique Ideas

I am participating in a Christmas boutique and need ideas on what else I can sell besides holiday cards. Any suggestions? I have never done anything like this before. I'm excited, but I need help! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In addition to holiday cards, I'm planning on doing all occasions--birthday, thank you, etc. Also will do post-it note holders, some paint cans filled with birthday or holiday stuff. and some candles. I've also thought about making ready-made scrapbook pages where the buyer only has to add their photos. Good luck.

Default CD calendars look like fun

CD CALENDAR HOLDERS - I have seen them in the gallery I think. I said to myself, "Self this would be a great idea for a craft fair, etc. if its this year or early next year." Hope this helps.

I just finished a show and the big sellers were the beaded bic pens and mini composition books that I made with a holiday look. On the fronts I wrote Holiday Lists and Secrets. These are the perfect size for women to slip into their purses. Also compositon books that are covered with "Prayer Journal" on the front.

I have had good luck with plain old paper lunch bag gift bags. These are especially easy and quick if you use the new jumbo rollers from the SU holiday mini and the matching stamp set. I stamp 5 bags and 6 matching gift tags. Sometimes I use a craft pad and emboss the tags, sometimes not. I slip 5 bags, 5 tags, 5 sheets of matching tissue paper and 5 24" lengths of matching or coordinating organdy ribbon into a clear side-gusset bag. Tie a ribbon and the 6th tag around the throat of the plastic bag and viola! I usually sell these for $7.00 to $10.00 depending on the cost of the tissue paper. The set also makes a really cute gift for teachers and holiday hostesses.

I think I got this idea from my upline a few years ago. E-mail me if you would like help w/color combo's.
