Well, the Secret Santa Craft Sale has come and gone! I'd say it was fairly successful considering it was my first Craft Sale ever! I only made $29.50 BUT...I didn't take high dollar items nor did I take a ton of things to sell. I figured since it was a Secret Santa Shop for kids to buy Christmas presents for their loved ones I'd try to keep things fun and cheap!
Besides, it was just a lot of fun hanging out with my friends for a few hours!
Here are a few photos of the items I made to sell...The Snowman Soup was priced at $2.00 each. I sold 10 out of 12. Lip balm holders were $1.00 each. Only sold 3 of 13. Ceramic Tile Coasters/Trivets were $1.00...didn't sell a single one of those! I was shocked...I thought for sure those would sell like hotcakes! Reindeer Food was seventy-five cents. Cheap, but only sold 3 packages. Square Teacher Post-It note holders were seventy-five cents, I sold out of those. BUT...I only made four. The rectangular Post-It note holders didn't sell at all. Oh well, it was a learning experience! I have tons of ideas for next year's sale and I can't wait!
Thanks for looking and for being so patient with me during my "Idle Blog Days"! I will definitely try to do much better in the new year!
