I don't know what you are including in the baskets or how much to sell them for. I mainly put baskets together as gifts (hobby) However, I just wanted to say that is an awesome idea!! I am sure the kiddos will really appreciate it!!

Well i was thinking of including a plush animal, lots of small toys..stickers,pencils,little games,activity books and such In a cute basket.Wrapped with a big basket bag. Probably for about $20-$25 each. Im also going to have items to the side where you can make your own basket. Of course candy also... Im just worried that if I put the money into it ...they may not sell well and than Im stuck with lots of inventory lol.

As a former gift store owner I think your idea about the children v-day basket is a great idea at my shop when it came to doing v-day baskets for kids do more for girls then boys because a lot ofmen came in theshop and brought baskets for their wives but they also was look for something for their baby girl. So if would like to buy some items I am relocatingmy shop and I want to selleverything at a very low priceif u would like to know morejust pm me or post to my post

Hello!.....and Greeting from Gadsden, AL![img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img] I run a small business from my home, called Dial-A-Greeting Services</font></font>.
As you mentioned "Valentine's Day Baskets", I think this is perfect
time to get started! I know I will be starting TODAY!



Christmas Baskets were a hit, I was overwhelmed with so many orders I
could barely keep up! Thing is: You Have to make them
affordable. Here in Alabama the cost of living is cheap and also
the average income is well.....we'll say compared to alot of northern
states.....poverty level![img]smileys/smiley5.gif[/img]



So you have to keep a balance. If you think about it hard enouf
then I promise you, you will come up with a great basket ideas and
repeat customers.



Note to self: Don't forget to make baskets themed for MEN, they
don't like to be left out! I figured it out the hard way.



Any advice I can give, I'd be more than HAPPY! [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img]



Cheers to Successful Basketmaking!
