Has anyone tried this? I think it would...

Rainbow Seeds

We have chocolate coated sunflower seeds around here -- they have a candy coating, like M&M's, but in a rainbow of colors. I think that those would work perfectly.

They are rather expensive,...

Why "nickel and dime" yourself and customers?

I would still say $3 each, or 4 for $10 -- maybe 10 for $20

You are not only a crafter -- but a salesperson -- and your job is to sell as many as you can make, while also making a living wage.

Cool Don't sell yourself short or cheapen your table

If an item is too cheap, people will not value it and consider it as a real gift to give someone. On the other hand, if you simply had a couple of cellophane bags with curly ribbon, you could pop it...

Great Seller for me

YES -- these sold very well -- the key was that I had very, very strong magnets on the back, so folks knew they could put a bundle of coupons or papers and they would stay up.

Under $10 items are HOT -- but be careful... you can be burned.

I find that almost anything that is under $10 is popular -- with "function" being key, and the "wow factor" as a fun plus. Something that everyone doesn't wander out saying, "I could do that" -- but...
