Default craft fair question

Have a question for you all. My mom has a table that she said I could put things out and she would sell them for me. I want to do a package of note cards. The clear boxes I have (papertrey) can hold 12. I think I would do 10 in each with envelopes. Do you include envelopes? Quite frankly not even sure if they will fit but would like to do 10. Anyway, should I include Thank you on them or should I just leave them blank? Also what would you charge? I thought that I would charge $15 a pack. Does that sound like too much? Any help would be appreciated!

Theresa

I always include envelopes with my cards, because how many people go and stock up on them? The cards from stores always come with envelopes, so mine do too. $15 sounds like a good price to me.

That was my feeling as well. Just thought I'd ask. Anyone else think $15 is fair or is it too much?

I'm doing a craft fair, too. I have some of those clear boxes from PaperTrey and I can only get 6 cards with envelopes in them. I'm charging $10.00 for a set of 6.

I just finished making two sets of 12 cards with envelopes, and the Papertrey clear boxes worked beautifully. I had at least three layers per card, but no big bulky embellishments. Some had brads, some had a little ribbon, but no big bows, hodgepodge hardware, etc.

Oh, forgot to answer the other question. I think $15 for 10 cards with envelopes is way too low! If you need to keep the price point at $15 or less, include fewer cards. I got $45 per set, sight unseen (of course, the customer was my mom, who was buying birthday gifts for some friends - she pays well!)

I sell my cards w/ envelopes for $2 a piece. I think you're under selling yourself.

This is exactly what I did...I think a set of 6 fits nicer than 10 or 12 especially if you have rhinestones or brads.

I sell cards for $2.50 each or 5 for $10.00 and they have embellishments. I probably have sold around 300-350 cards this fall (only three shows) and also orders! Good luck!

See this is why I ask my stamping buddies My mom says I always under price my stuff. I think I will do less cards with an extra bling (brads ribbon etc) on them. I have a feeling they will go over big because this mini craft fair is sponsored by a school. So alot of moms will be there. Hopefully looking for teacher like gifts! Thanks for all the great advice.
