This is my booth at the Memorial United Methodist Church craft fair in Fernandina Beach. My mom snapped this picture of me and I was feeling like a 5th grader at the science fair. “Come on Mom! All of the other crafters are watching.”
I had a fun time and I sold almost of half of the cards I brought with me. The other vendors/crafters that were there were very friendly too. I met a woman named Marie who had hand sewn projects but, she had also made some cards with her scrap fabric. She and I swapped a few cards at the end of the show. Check out her Clean and Simple beauties…
I love the retro vibe of these cards. These ladies look like 1920’s divas. I can just imagine the cute bobbed haircuts or finger curls they have hidden away under their hats. Thanks to Marie for the trade!
For those of you who may be curious, I sold single cards for $3.50 US and 5 packs of cards for $12.50 US. I had prepackaged packs of 5 that included 5 versions of the same card but, I had a lot of people ask if they could mix and match their own 5 pack. Since my intention was to sell as many cards as possible rather than haul them back home, I allowed customers to mix and match their selections. Of course I sold way more cards as packs of five than I did of the singles. And although that brought my profit margin down lower I still easily paid for my supplies and made a profit. (Which I promptly spent on a Big Shot machine, some LifeStyle Crafts die-cuts, printed paper and more blank cards!) I am like a Crack Dealer who sells just enough Crack to keep my habit up. (Please note that I in no way endorse the use of or myself use, Crack or other cocaine derivatives. That would cut too deeply into my craft habit)
