Hot pads with cinnamon fragrance sell really well where I live.

Hi all,

The Vendor show wasn't bad. It's only been around for a few years and there were quite a few in attendance. I did sell enough to cover my table and make a profit. My Hershey nugget tins were an absolute hit and I sold all of them. My stand up post it note holders were also a hit. I sold some retired punches and stamp sets too and handed out quite a few newsletters with my info on it. Many people were very selective in their purchases. My daughter and niece had a Scrabble table and they did well with their items also. They make necklaces, wine charms 4 and 6 pc sets, bracelets and have charm link bracelets available. The wine charms are embellished on the back with decorative paper or images. Not too expensive and great gift ideas. Anyone interested, please email me.

Great ideas! How do you make the hershey tins and post it note holders? Do you have pics?
I'm brand new to Stampin' Up and can use all the help I can get.

I made a couple of different post it note holders. The ones on the acrylic frames as well as the ones Angie Juda makes on coasters. I sold out of the acrylic frame ones (I took my alpha stamps and personalized it for the customer who was buying it) and sold most of the coaster ones too. This was back in May.

I'm doing a couple this fall and will try the snowman poop and the like.

You can find great ideas if you just google craft fairs or stampin up craft fairs. That's what I did and just compiled a list of things I wanted to make!!!

Bumping this thread because I'm gearing back up for Fall Craft fairs. What are you working on, and what has been selling for you at your local craft fairs?

I made the santa claus suit with the Curvy Keepsake Box last year and I sold them all. This year I will try a variety of themes.
