How Cold Is It

Evening, well I'm home and all snug in bed. The Christmas Fair was ok, I sold 13 cards, after the summer fair I did and sold none as people said £1 a card was to much, I thought this time I would sell them for 50p each and managed to sell 15 and an order for 2, not even the teacher cards sold, some people still said that they could get 4 for a pound (I even said to 1 person to go and do it). On my order table I had, I did well, best seller was "Reindeer food" (made 20 could of sold more)and sold out of it, I sold some "Snowman Soup" and other bits.

Glad you managed to sell some cards pity you sold them for 50p as handmade cards are a work of art not seething you made a batch of cheap printed card base x

that's why I made some printed ones as well as decoupage and stamped images x

Some people don't appreciate all the work that goes into hand made cards x

Glad that you sold some of your cards only sorry they only sold for 50p. Some people just don't appreciate all the hard work that goes into making cards.

When I spend two hours making a card, there's no way I could bear to sell it for 50p!! I only did 2 craft fairs and found that people wanted dirt cheap cards - so I resolved never to do them again.

Glad that your reindeer food sold!
What was the snowman soup?? I'm intrigued.

It's such a shame, your cards are beautiful and I don't think £1 is too much for any nice card let alone a handmade one, people might be able to get 4 for a pound but they would only be cheap rubbish things, I think it's very rude of people to say that and I think 50p is too low, surely that's selling at a loss, some of the shops around here sell handmade cards for between £5 and £10 each and they aren't even what I would call special ones. I hope the next one goes better or you find a shop to sell them for you at a reasonable price as you deserve to be getting more than that for your work
