Pick a card, any card.




I have done a couple of craft fairs in the past and have tried to sell handmade greeting cards with varying success. So many people make their own cards now and with Wilkos selling kits it's pretty cheap to do your own. But I like making cards, (she whinged) it's fun and I like buying things to make cards with...I can't stop. This is my latest idea, and really it's a last try. I have made three packs of six 'notelets' in gift boxes to go on the stall at the farmers market. These are made with some Papermania Laura Ashley paper and various other bits and pieces. I'm really pleased with them and if they don't sell I'll be doing a give away! What do you reckon? Do you have any joy selling your cards? If so can I ask how much you charge for them? Questions, questions.....in-securities!

Love these, very pretty.
I have a little 'stall' at Francesca's nursery, I charge £1 for each card and did a roaring trade at christmas time when I sold bundles of six cards for £5! Not going to make a million but cards are good advertising, stick something on the back and then the people who bought them know where they came from (if they want more)and so do the people they send them to!! Love the box idea, stick one on etsy and see what happens....? £10 a box at the farmers' market!

I love 'em! When you decide how much to charge... charge me for some would you! I love the middle pic of the three packs... and only fleetingly wondered if they were boutique chocolate bars... honest.

I think they look great!!! I do sell quite a lot of cards and prices vary from a small square one at 50p upto around £3 for a personalised one (my little people) but try them at £10 and then if no takers, reduce them a bit to £8......

Boxes very good too!!!

Gorgeous and lovely idea to sell them as a boxed set! They should fly out, no idea on price, I'm useless at that!
